My cat was a habitual faucet drinker, she wouldn't drink from her water bowls, I had to keep turning on sink faucets for her. I tried different types of water fountains that kept water moving, but they were either too loud or didn't move the water enough. This water fountain is like several different water faucets turned on, which my cat loves. She drinks from different streams each time she visits the fountain, and because of that she drinks a lot more. I'm happy I have a hydrated cat!
