Drinkwell® Ceramic Avalon Pet Fountain – Review
If you have a cat there’s a good chance this is a familiar site.
I know you’re shaking your head, you know what I’m talking about!
You walk into the bathroom only to be greeted by a cat that’s waiting for the basin tap to be turned on. It doesn’t matter that you have three bowls filled with fresh water spread over various rooms in the house! Your cat is most certainly not waiting to have the tap turned on so they can wash their paws! It’s because your cat insists on drinking their water fresh from a running tap!

Imagine; no more “meows” in our faces in the middle of the night, no more paws pulling back our warm blankets early in the morning!
My first impression of the Ceramic Avalon pet fountain that I received from PetSafe Canada was the weight of the ceramic fountain – no cat or dog in this house would be tipping this fountain over! The Avalon pet fountain comes in a choice of red or white. Since my cat has no colour preference, I choose the red and am thrilled with it. I truly believe that pet products can be functional and visually appealing.
The Avalon pet fountain required assembly of the bowl, tower, pump, and (replaceable) filter and took me just a few minutes to get the water flowing. I had to choose a location that had access to an electrical outlet as the fountain does not run on batteries (my only disappointment).
My cat Lloyd was quite intrigued once the water began to flow and he decided to test the waters. It only took a brief moment before Lloyd began drinking from the tower of the Drinkwell Ceramic Avalon pet fountain.
The Ceramic Avalon Fountain holds 2 litres of water that continuously recirculates and filters your cat’s drinking water, keeping it cleaner and fresher than a standing bowl of water. The ceramic design of the pet fountain makes it easy to clean, is dishwasher safe (excluding pump) and the multiple drinking levels give your pet the option to drink at a level that’s comfortable to them.
I believe the continuous stream of water encourages my cats to drink water more often, and we all know that water is an essential for good health.
Does your cat drink from the tap, or maybe they’re a “dip a paw in the glass” kind of drinker?
