Rated 2 out of 5 by TXDee Sunbeam pet fountain
Bought this fountain end of 2014. Pump lasted about six months. Bought another fountain because I really like the size and type. It is now Oct and the same thing has occurred. I called the company that distributes this fountain to see if I could just get a new pump. Not sold separately. But since fountain is within 1 yr they are sending me another. If I have the same thing occur I will switch to another fountain type. I recommend calling the company that distributes the sunbeam fountain.

We bought this fountain and had to return it within 30 days as the fountain stopped working.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jawsy Not a Good Idea for an Inquisitive Cat
For us, this totally DID NOT work!! The motion of the water caused our cat to believe that we bought her a new toy, not a source of hydration. Every time we filled it she would paw all of the water out of it within about 10 minutes. Finally gave up after 3 days because she continued to splash the water out even after we unplugged the pump.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolT My cats use this regularly
I have a couple of cats with urinary tract issues and the vet recommended finding ways to make them drink more water. I picked this up and now all 5 of my cats drink from it every day. I usually have to refill the reservoir bottle every other day to keep up with the demand. My cats seem to like this fountain better than a similar one I have without the charcoal filter, so I may get another one of these.
The pump is adjustable - there's a small lever on the side of it that will reduce the flow of water, so maybe that will help any cats/kittens that are afraid. Also, the "fountain" part can be shut off so the water circulates through the bowl, with zero splashing - that may help too.
