These beautiful ceramic works of art are not just another pretty piece of sculpture, they are lovely little drinking fountains designed just for cats. Ceramic artist Keith Davitt has been refining his drinking fountain design for years and he has several styles that cats seem to love. What a great way to keep kitty hydrated and add a lovely fountain to your home.
These fountains are very simple, making them easy to keep clean. Each one comes with a unique glazed bowl and a pump, and most designs include a raised pottery piece that creates a little waterfall. The pump is hidden between the ceramic pieces and the cord goes neatly out the bottom portion of the bowl. All materials and glazes are certified food safe.
Keith sent us a fountain to test and, as you can see below, Simba loves it (and so do all the others!) The fountain was very easy to set-up and it looks so nice on the ledge above the kitchen counter. You can see the three simple pieces included in the package: bowl, pump with cord, and pottery cover for the pump. I adjusted the pump to create a little bubbling fountain because I like the sound of trickling water, but the pump can also be adjusted to keep the water moving silently.
The kitty below is Bijou, Keith’s cat who is the inspiration for his fountains. Keith is always experimenting with new fountain designs. You can see his latest work in his Etsy shop. Fountains range from $62 to $178, depending on the complexity of the design.
