Drinking regularly is important for your cat’s health as it helps ensure proper kidney function and helps prevent crystal formation that can lead to urinary tract diseases. The Catit 2.0 Flower fountain encourages your cat to drink more water. A cats natural instinct is to find fresh water and the flow of this fountain draws their attention immediately. The flow can be changed to 3 different settings for fussy drinkers, a gentle flow, a bubbling top or calm streams. Unlike bowls, the Catit Flower Fountain pushes only filtered, running water to the surface. This prevents your cat from having access to dirty water.
