Just what I wanted
I had this same fountain for my cats, and the motor died after a couple of years of continuous use. (The previous one was marketed as "Boots and Barkley," but a call to the company confirmed that this was the same item.) Since my diabetic cat drinks more water with this fountain in the house, and since I had just purchased a new supply of filters, I wanted to replace the product as quickly and inexpensively as possible. Petguys had the best price on the web, by far; other suppliers were selling this product for 20-50% more. I ordered primarily because of the pricing and was pleased that the order came within a couple of days. The product is an exact replacement for the one that expired, works beautifully, and my cats and I are happy campers. I have read that cats drink more when they can see water moving. The slow trickle of water down the slide draws them regularly to drink. Filters are inexpensive, and I think it is not surprising that a motor of this size gave out after two years of continuous use.
ProsProvides cats with a continuous source of fresh, moving water.
ConsThe fountain has several parts that must be assembled just right in order for the fountain to work. It took us a while to be able to assemble it easily after cleaning.
