We had an ongoing problem in our house. I wouldn't drink out of my own water bowl. I would only drink out of Dakota's bowl and Mom was worried that because of my food allergies that wasn't a good idea.

before he got his new feeder
and before I got my new fountain!
Mom tried everything. All sorts of cute bowls were put before me, but nope, I wouldn't use them.
Mom wasn't able to make it to BlogPaws this past summer but Kate Benjamin from ModernCat was kind enough to send Mom all sorts of info about the new
Catification Lounge! Mom was so excited when she read about these GORGEOUS cat fountains that looked like works of art called:

CORRECTION FROM CODY: I just received an email from Keith informing me that my Mom did not assemble my fountain correctly.
My mother is not the most adept at assembly and following instructions and it certainly wasn't her intent to cause anyone "embarrassment" by not having the fountain properly put together.
These wonderful fountains come with a HAND-MADE CERAMIC LEAF OR SHELL which should not be standing on the side as Mom has depicted it. The purpose of the hand-made ceramic leaf or shell is to cover the cord or feedthrough INSIDE the fountain. NOT as Mom has shown them in the photo. The properly assembled fountain looks like this:
Once again Mom and I apologize for putting the fountain together incorrectly but you know what? I'm a cat and all I care about is that the water tastes good when I drink it and that the fountain is beautiful.
From Keith's Etsy shop: "Cats need to drink enough water and it is well known that cats much prefer moving water. Whether flowing up, down or sideways, these fountains encourage your cats to drink,contributing to their health, with none of the negative effects that come from China-made or plastic cat fountains or fountains with difficult to clean corners. As to food-safeness, a lack of lead in the glaze is not sufficient. Has the glaze been tested for leaching of colorants or other chemical components in the glaze? Ours have."
Not convinced your cat will use one? I am the KING of shunning new things! LOOK AND LISTEN!! The sound of the bubbling water just might put you to sleep.
Mom and I think this fountain is superb. We couldn't be happier and my water tastes the best it has ever tasted!
