Recently Mommy bought me a ceramic pet fountain. After having it for a week, I wanted to do a review for those catsters who are interested.
I give this fountain a 5 Paw Rating.
We bought it from Hammacher Schlemmer and they sent it very safely packaged. It was very easy to put together. The fountain is a very simple style. Mommy likes the look of this fountain. She likes things white so this fit in our house perfectly. We had been looking for a ceramic fountain for awhile and had never found one until we saw this online. I can sometimes get acne from plastic (I am a teenager!) so that is the main reason Mommy was looking for ceramic because it can be cleaned so well.
When we first got it, I stared at it wide eyed. Soon I realized it wasn't just a pretty fountain, but my new drinking fountain. It is very quiet as the water stream softly hits the dish. The bubbling water at the top doesn't make a noise unless you let the water get low then it gurgles. But if you keep it filled, it is quiet. You just pour water into the dish. It has lower sides so I can lay next to it and watch the water. The fountain should be cleaned every 1 or 2 weeks. We clean ours weekly. The filter lasts 30 days. Additional ones can be bought online for $11.95. (NOTE: THERE ARE 3 FILTERS for the $11.95)
Today we took it apart to clean it for the review. We put the bowl and the top ceramic piece on the top shelf of the dishwasher. They came out sparkling clean. That was nice and easy compared to the Drinkwell Fountains. The motor is in a white plastic shell which protects it better from food and hair. That was easy to rinse. We took apart the motor (which is the same style as the drinkwell but smaller) and that came apart so easily. Mommy always broke nails trying to take the Drinkwell motors apart. It was very simple to put the whole fountain back together again for my use.
All the positives are listed above. This is really the purrfect fountain for me. The cons we could think of is that it is more expensive and can only be purchased at Hammacher. It is ceramic so it is heavier which is good for a fountain but Mommy is hoping she never drops it. I don't think she will. It matters what kind of fountain your cats like. The Platinum fountains are very good and fun fountains with their streams. We just wish they made them in ceramic and didn't have so many pieces to clean.
This ceramic fountain is made exclusively for Hammacher by Pioneer Pet Products in Cedarburg, WI. We do almost all our shopping online so haven't been in a Hammacher store in a long time. There are codes you can find for online. The coupon we used for buying the fountain and 2 extra filters was:
Hammacher coupon code "HSOCTFS" for Free Shipping with a $99 purchase. Exp 11/01/09
Of course with the purchase you get the famous Hammacher guarantee:
"Should any product fail to meet your expectations, for any reason, simply return it with proof of purchase. We will replace it, refund the cost of the item less shipping and service fees, or credit your credit card, depending on your original payment method." A UPS prepaid label is included in the package. (But they take off $10. from your return credit if it wasn't a defective unit.)

I hope this was helpful!

Such a sad day in Catsterland. Everycat's Best Friend, Calvin, has made his journey to the Rainbow Bridge.
**REST IN PEACE CALVIN**
Thanks Calvin for letting us know the bridge secret of the Heart Basket. That sounds like a beautiful welcome basket. We for sure will act all surprised when it is our turn.
Take care our friend. We will love you forever!!

I now own 3 campgrounds!! I have a tent on each level of the house and each day I make sure to visit every one of them and take a nap there. I started off today at the 3rd floor campground and right now am napping on the 1st floor campground. They are all Hello Kitty campgrounds. Pink slippers with pink HK blankies covering them. You are all invited to stay at Camp RA!!
Fish is served at Camp RA. What is a campground without fish!! I've been really good at taking my new fish oil. It came in a capsule that Dr Dad felt was still too big to go down my throat. So Mommy transferred this oil to our own small capsules. I've been taking the fish oil 3 times a day like a good little camper.
This week Mommy bought me a heated bed. She thought that would be good for my joints in the fall/winter. (Even though it is in the 80's here this week!) It is very comfy. But I prefer my tents. I use my heated bed as a massage table. That is where Mommy gives me my massages. Very spa-like. I get in there and just purr away.
Mommy had looked at the wrong link for my waterfountain. It hasn't come yet. It is coming tomorrow. I will be sure to let you know my reviews on it for those who are interested.
**HERE'S MY ENTRY IN THE CATSTER COOLEST CONTEST**
I'd appreciate your vote!!

Daily Diary Piggie, that is what I am!! Thank you Catster HQ for the Daily Diary Pick Honor AND the Silly Skull Giftee you gave us all for Halloween. What a sweet treat. I really apologize to my catster friends for being such a DDP Hog. And I catgratulate all the other cats who are honored today.
I'm expecting a package today! Right now I have the plastic Drinkwell water fountains. I absolutely love them but Mommy always has to keep an eye on my chin since I've been known to break out with plastic dishes. She was really happy to actually find a ceramic pet water fountain on the Hammacher Schlemmer website. She had never seen one before. Mommy ordered me one and it is suppose to be delivered today. I'm very interested to see what it is like. Mommy is thinking it might be easier for me if I can drink out of the top portion of the fountain instead of bending way over to the bottom part. Also it can be put in the dishwasher for a thorough cleaning. I will let you know how many paws I end up giving it.
