I got this for my elderly cat. She is fussy, but seems to be taking to it. I am super sound sensative, but this isnt too bad. I bought a bubble up fountain. it is great. just hear small splashing noices, no motor noise. I too scoffed at the price, but it is well worth it. my plastic one was so slimy no matter how much i cleaned it. so i ditched that for this amazing fountain. you can tell it is hand made and done by a real professional. i would recommend to anyone
