Cats are known to have a lower thirst drive than their canine counterparts, making them more likely to become dehydrated. Hydration is key for your cat's health. Without enough water, your cat might be prone to developing bladder and kidney stones, cystitis, constipation, or chronic kidney disease. So, if you are suspecting that your cat isn't drinking enough water then a cat drinking fountain might be the solution you have been searching for.

In this article, we will discuss the benefits of a cat drinking fountain, as well as where to find one for sale in South Africa. 

The Benefits of a Drink Fountain for Cats

There are many benefits to and reasons why cats love drinking fountains. Some of these benefits include:

  • They Are Filtered: Most cat fountains come with a filter, meaning that they take out all the gunk that might be stuck in your water supply.
  • It Tugs at Natural Instinct: Cats naturally want to drink from moving water sources such as rivers, as this water is usually clear and fresh. Thus, the moving water created by a cat fountain automatically attracts them.
  • An Improved Taste: As some of the toxins that one might find in water will be removed by the filter, it will greatly improve the smell and the taste of the water, making it more appealing to drink.
  • They Are Hygienic: As the water is not stagnant it won't develop a breeding ground for bacteria.
  • They Keep the Water Cool: Cat water fountains have been known to keep the water a degree or two cooler than that of a normal cat drinking bowl which once again makes it more attractive to your cat.
