Our Water Fountain

It is with heavy hearts that we must report to you kitties that the worst has happened to our beloved DrinkWell water fountain. Sometime in the night, the motor quit working - yes kitties, our beloved water fountain has gone to the Bridge and left us kitties bereft of its soothing splash, its wonderful taste, its purified water. We are crying here on the Black Furrball. We loved our water fountain so much - just look!! We have pictures of it in it's younger days.

Here it is beside Fagin as he begs for fresh shrimp. You see, the fountain was helping Fagin by using its relaxing sounds on Daddy as Fagin begged for FOODS! Our water fountain was a true friend.

Here it is behind Dante. Our fountain was always there for us kitites, supporting us always and providing us with wonderful, clean water. We are so sad. Mommy says she will buy us a new one, but will it ever be the same?

PS: Purrageous Mom here! I am going to get the kitties a new fountain soon. This one was given to them by Aunt Susan so I will be checking prices, etc on different models and picking out the best one. Does anyone have any fountain recommendations for me? Pretty much only the kitties use the fountain so I do not need one big enough for the cats and the dogs. Any assistance is much appreciated!!

PSS: Mommy said the interview went well yesterday and that they told her she would know if they will offer to job to her early next week. Please keep purring for her. We all really want her to get the job!!!

we love our catit fountain. The motor stopped working once but it was easy to clean and then worked again. No outlet in the kitchen it just gets placed in random spots around.

We are not anonymous. It's Indy, Zoe, and Georgia...but we can't sign in today for some reason.

Ah, rest in peace, dear Fountain. We had that exact same fountain, and when it finally conked out, we got the new Platinum Drinkwell. It has a nice big reservoir and is pretty easy to clean.

Fagin! Play Trackball with me? PLAY!

Abby has her own personal water fountain: MOMMA. Abby has trained her to turn the water on at the spigot and then she drinks out of Momma's hands. IS that not totally spoiled?! Abby is treated like a little queen...sometimes I just wanted give her the ol' one two pawsie. But, Momma loves me I just don't need as much attention as Abby does. Although that little wench has taken over my spot in bed at night....but it's my purrday so I am not going to complain. How bout you come over and we celebrate together?

RIP Mr Drinkwell Fountain.

I don't have a fountain, there is nowhere to plug it in. Also my dad says they are unnecessary (!!!!!!!!!!!!)

oh no, we are so sad for you. we're sure that your first water fountain will always have a special place in your hearts, but that doesn't mean you can't find room for a new one.

we are purring and purring and purring for your mommy to get that new job. Bendrix and I remember how hard it is to have a mommy in a bad job.

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

Oh NO! Now you have to drink out of a dumb old bowl!

I had a fountain once too, but I didn't like it, but it wasn't as cool as yours, I think I might like your kind.

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Oh nooooooo, we feel fur ya guys. We haf da same fountain and mom hadda take da pump apart once to fix it...something she sez she will never do again. If ours breaks (again) we'll be getting a brand new Drinkwell.

goldenshade said...

Sorry to hear about your fountain. I will be excited to see your new one! I have been asking for one forever but none has appeared. I go out of my way to drink from puddles outside when the PM is around, hoping for some sympathy.

Hope your mom gets the job she wants.

Sorry your fountain died. We don't use fountains, so no recommendations. I hope your new fountain arrives soon!

Continued good wishes for your Mom to get that job.

The Meowers from Missouri said...

oh, woe! we can sympathize wif you on the loss of your drinkwell. we loved ours, too. but the doggie known as thor-of-blessed-memory ated ours, an' mom said it was too spensive to buy anofur one. so they got us the one that uses a big sodapop bottle. well, he ate that, too. he even ated the hard plastic kiddy-pool they kept inna yard in hot weather.

an' now that there's no thor, there is a dambrowndog who eats plastic cat toys, so we're STILL not gettin' one. humbug.

we purrs an' purrrays yer mom gets that jobbie--nothin' improves beans' tempers like findin' some really good day huntin'!!

Camie's Kitties said...

We are sorry to hear about your fountain. We just got one. So far Tiki is the only one Mom has caught drinking out of it, but he is the one she got it for anyway. We got the Drinkwell Platinum (like Max).

Oh poor drinkwell. Did it quit working because somebody put the bitey on the cord? Because that's what happened to ours. oops
