DESIGNS for every breed and temperament

Thirstycat fountains offer a wide range of designs – far more than any other cat fountain maker – so are able to accommodate not only all the different breeds and their physical characteristics – but every cat and all there individual preferences. Plus, you can choose a fountain that is right for you and your home or have one created to your specifications.

This is important. You want your cat to use his fountain but if it isn’t the right design, he won’t. Does your cat need a stream or is she shy or timid? Is your cat a longhair, does he like to tip over his water? Do you why thirstycat fountainhave more than one cat and do they enjoy drinking together? Because all Thirstycat fountains are handmade we are able to create a great variety of fountains suitable for every individual cat and which  perfectly conform to every individual characteristic and preference.


Thirstycat cat fountains are quiet. There is no pump noise with our fountains. We create many that are completely silent and many which provide beautiful water sounds but pump noise or any unpleasant sounds are not acceptable to us any more than they are to you.


Our fountains are very easy to clean, as so many of the customer reviews state. (Between or Etsy shop and here we have over 2,000, 5 star reviews and the highest percentage of 5 star reviews (about 99%)  of all cat fountain makers.) Here is a video of cleaning a ThirstyCat Fountain.


Our fountains are food safe. The only way to know if a fountain is food safe is if you know what it is made of. Because we make our fountains by hand, from scratch, including our glazes, we know. We follow strict guidelines established by two scientist/potters who did extensive testing to determine food safeness. In ceramics, not using lead in a glaze is only one consideration for food safety. It is also important to not use any toxic colorants and to not use too much of any colorant, which can leach.

“My cats absolutely love the fountain I purchased a few years ago, so I’m glad I was able to replace the pump when it stopped functioning. Very reasonable price considering how long the last pump lasted and fast shipping as well. Fantastic customer service on top of it all, you can’t ask for better.” Cheryl W. From our reviews.
