Pros: Entices drinking.
Keeps water cold.
Filtered water.
Cons: Monthly filter change.
Weekly motor clean.
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!
Pros: Low maintenance, cats love it
Cons: took Connor and Murphy a couple of days to use it; they hate when it "fizzes"
Connor and Murphy are ridiculously picky.  They would only drink water if I had just washed the bowl and filled it.  Rinsing it didn't count.  If the water had been in the bowl for more than 10 minutes, they wanted nothing to do with it.  I had to wash their bowl a dozen times a day - literally - and I never felt like they were getting enough water.  So, I decided to try a fountain.  We actually got the fountain a couple of days before we found Mickey.  We set it up, but Connor and Murphy weren't using it.  They sniffed at it, but didn't drink from it.  Then, we brought Mickey home.  He started using it immediately.  Then Connor and Murphy started.  I don't know if they figured it out from watching him or what.  Anyway, ever since then, I feel like they're all getting plenty of water.  Instead of washing and refilling a bowl a dozen times a day, I add water to it every 2 days or so and wash it once a week.  Huge time saver.

When it gets low on water, the water coming out kind of "fizzes."  That's how I know I need to add water.  The cats won't drink from it when it fizzes.  If they decide it's taken me too long to notice that it's fizzing, they'll knock it over and take it apart.
