Great review of the Cat Mate Pet Fountain! I love the layout and the information you put at the top for the price, quality, ease of use, and ongoing cost. Very nice! I don’t think the price of the filter is bad at all. I don’t have cats, I have dogs. But I even like this for my dogs. Then they get fresh water all the time. Great review and thank you for sharing!

Moving water reduces bacteria growth and the pre-filter catches things like hair, toys, or whatever else your pet drops in the bowl. It pulls up for easy cleaning in case you have dogs that shed a lot. I started out with the Cat Mate Pet Fountain which holds 70 ounces of water compared to 168 ounces that you get with the PetSafe Drinkwell Platinum Pet Fountain. The CatMate was a great fountain. It was smaller and quieter but I noticed my cats drinking a lot more so eventually upgraded to the PetSafe Fountain so I wouldn’t have to refill it as much. The cool thing about the Platinum Pet fountain is that I just have to fill up the back container once and that will keep their water full for a little over a week. It’s built really well and it’s extremely hard to tip over, the wide base and well thought out water reservoir will withstand cats or dogs that like to tip things over. It has a leaver that will allow you to adjust the water flow in case it’s making too much noise or if you have a nervous cat that prefers a smaller stream.
