December 13, 2004 Filtered water systems have long been used by humans who want clean and fresh drinking water, and now the idea has spread to cats. The Catit Drinking Fountain responds to your pet's need for a continuous supply of water with an innovative design that re-circulates water with greater exposure to oxygen, providing fresh-tasting, cool, filtered water for a multitude of health benefits.
Like humans, pets require water as a vital element for survival. Water constitutes approximately 70% of a cat's or dog's body. Encouraging your pets to drink more water helps promote their health and well-being, ensuring proper kidney function and it may decrease the incidence of crystal formation and urinary disease (FUS).

The re-circulating flow and filter eliminates stagnant water and is whisper quiet, whilst the innovative dome design allows water to sheet over the entire surface area to help keep the water cool - and provide a 'licking fountain' for cats to enjoy. The Catit filtered water system has a three litre capacity - which means you don't have to keep filling it up during the day, and is easy to clean and maintain in any living space. It is energy efficient, runs off a 12v system but consumes less than four watts, and has a protective plastic guard to protect the cord from water or chewing by a pet. The purifying filters are replaceable, and help collect debris, hair, food and sediment that might otherwise get into the water.
The Catit filter dome has a full 360 degree drinking area bowl around the main dome to allow multiple critters to drink at the same time - and yes, the Catit folks even say their filtration system can be used by puppies or small dogs, in case you were wondering. It retails for approximately UK 29.99 pounds and is available in time for Christmas to show you pet how much you love them.
