Kitty and Her New Pet Fountain

Harland recently bought Kitty a pet fountain. It’s the white dish there in the background above.

While Kitty drinks her nightly treat of milk, I’ll explain.

She’s very picky about her water and when we are away on a trip, and no one is there to change her water every day, she doesn’t drink as much as she should. We think that’s why she had a bladder infection a while back. ¬†Her new pet fountain should ¬†prevent that from ever happening again. According to the directions in the box it,

“continuously circulates and filters your pet’s water. Fountain features a patented free-falling stream to draw more oxygen into the water and the sound of the free-falling stream lets pets know their water is fresh. A replaceable charcoal filter removes bad tastes and odors from the water.”

What a great idea! We’re were so excited and Harland put it together right away and the filter inserted, filled it with water and then put it on the floor in front of Kitty and –

Nothing. Zip. Nada.

Kitty looked at it and walked away. And she’s ignored it ever since. In fact, she’s afraid of it and steers a circle around it when she walks past.


So we’ve left her old dish of water there, and keep changing it every day. Hopefully, she’ll get used to her new pet fountain.
