Made In America
If a cat fountain is made in China there is no way to verify if it is food safe and every reason to suspect it is not. Not only does ThirstyCat Fountains make each fountain by hand in rural upstate Cambridge, NY, we also make all our glazes from raw minerals. What is the value of this? We know and regulate exactly how much and what goes into them, following guidelines established for food-safeness by scientists/ceramicists: Nothing toxic and not too high a percentage of anything that could leach into the water. Of course we want our cat drinking water, but from vessel what matters.
There are numerous other ceramic pet fountains being made now by major manufacturers, following the lead of ThirstyCats. But they all are made in China and can any of them truly verify their food safeness? No.
And yes, the upfront cost of our fountains is higher than most. But they last forever and our superior filtration will more than make up for the cost because of the frequent filter replacement required for all other fountain brands.
Cat Fountain Placement
Where you place your cat fountain may be more important than you realize. The tendency to place it near the food bowl should be resisted, for several reasons. In the wild, which cats still very much are in their ways, cats keep there food separate from water which ensures the water does not become contaminated. Veterinarians say that having food near your cats water source can put them off drinking due to the aromas of the food so they may not drink as much and drinking abundantly is crucial to a cats health. Cats like their food and water to be in different locations so give them that for their superior well being.
Good places for your cat fountain are away from loud appliances, not in trafficked areas and of course nowhere near the litter box. Near a window if you have that option is a great place, as is a raised surface such as a table or counter. With a ThirstyCat fountain you can do this and enhance your home decor at the same time.
