    Whisker City® Pet Fountain is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 288.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It may not actually be broken (the motor) I clean mine once or twice a week. It stopped working completely after sputtering for a while and putting out less and less water. It turns out the motor was just clogged, not burned out. You can completely take the top off, whereas I had been cleaning the part with the filter, only. To take the top fully off look underneath and there are two side clamps, press each with your finger and gently push the top. After you've done both the top will just come off. The motor is only suction cupped to the bottom, pull up and it comes off. Mine was clogged with wet hair. I used a paper towel and sewing needle to lift the hair out. I then put it back together, added water, and turned it on. It worked like brand new! Just a heads up for those who's motors are clogged rather than broken.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Noisy My husband & I purchased the small pet fountain for our 1 male cat (who prefers running water). The product was easily assembled & inexpensive; I do believe this is one of those get-what-you-pay-for circumstances. Although properly functioning, the unit was entirely too loud for a small house - the sound was much like an amplified aquarium pump. I recommend paying more for a quieter unit. If you have a large house where the unit will not be near your common area or bedroom, this product would probably suit just fine.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its the pump I purchased two of these over a six month period thinking that it was the filters not protecting the pump from breaking. The problem is, that the pump gets clogged and overheats then stops working. The pump has to be taken apart, and cleaned in order for this product to keep working. There is a video online if you google the product, you can see how. Wish I would have known sooner. Now I have to find a new pump.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a product I was ready to return to Petsmart as soon as a few months after getting it and saw all the complaints AFTER buying it! Then I read the "5" review where they explained how simple this was to clean the motor of cat hair and VOILA it was. Need to clean it monthly but my kitties just love this especially since I now have the pump on a towel to muffle the noise factor!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Much better now We were very frustrated with the Whisker City fountain, the pump worked well for a couple months ( after our other brand fountain worked for 8 years). I found a home made video on line demonstrating proper cleaning of said pump - Voila - it's fine now.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from fair product Picked this up for my cat today. I'm trying to break him of his faucet drinking habit as he goes barreling down the hallway every time I'm headed toward the bathroom because he knows I'll turn on the water...I'd like to use the bathroom alone sometime! The fountain bowl is easy to set up, you basically just stick the filter in, fill it up with water and plug it in - voila, a water fountain for your cat. The problem is that the spout is over to the side instead of the middle so depending on what side the cat is lapping from, they can end up splashing a lot of water (A SURPRISINGLY LARGE AMOUNT OF WATER). This is easily amenable though, as long as you don't mind having a big pet mat or in my case, a half sheet baking tray under the fountain. I don't mind exactly, but I do think knowing that would have affected my decision to purchase this particular fountain. Otherwise, it is great. As I said, it is easy to set up, the motor is super quiet and there is no splashing water sound. Basically, it's quieter than a fish tank filter motor. Also, it's not noticeable in the picture on the box, but due to the oblong shape of the bowl section it does tend to look a lot like a tiny little toilet... FYI: other reviewers have commented about their difficulty finding replacement filters - the instruction manual says that the filters are not required for use of this item. I think as long as you keep it clean and remove any debris from the inside every now and then it should be fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I purchased this fountain as a gift for a friends cat. Dakota, the cat, loves it and is drinking much more water than before.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK For The Money My Tuxie Tom developed urinary issues in April 2013. I have a multi cat house hold, so we all went thru some changes. Years ago, I had a cat with renal failure and I knew how important being hydrated was. This was the first fountain I've purchased. I was scared at first because my Tuxie bat at the fountain and its box, then walked away. I just knew I was going to take it back to Petsmart. Then another kitty took a sip from the bowl. We were in the business. The Tuxie loves to drink straight from fountain. Yes, it can get a little loud when its low--I wondered what that noise was when I first heard it. And I've had to clean the hair from the motor. The main and important thing, my cats use it, especially the Tuxie. Is it inconvenient for me? Yes, and the bowl IS too small--yet, for the time being, it does what it's suppose to do and I'm glad.

    The fountain is not working?  Does it require a filter or is it defective?  I’ve only had it for 3 months!

    Asked by: Tommy116
    I had the same problem. I have hard water, so I likely had hardness buildup in the pump which stopped from working. Solved it by immersing the pump in white vinegar during a regular cleaning. I do this every other month.

    Hi, I purchased this exact same fountain from Petsmart this afternoon and was charged $39.99. The number on the receipt is 007375732116. The website says $29.99.

    Asked by: jshulman
    I know that sometimes the instore prices are more than their online prices. So that may be the issue here. They do price match their website though.

    How heavy is the base? I have a kitten who is obsessed with tipping over our current watering system. I'm trying to find something so that this isn't possible (I'm gone all day and I don't want either of my cats to be without water.

    Asked by: Naomianderson
    i haven't weighed it but it is not particularly heavy. the motor is very small (maybe 1 1/2" x 2" x 3"). My cat used to move our water bowl around, and this one, he rarely tries, but is still capable of knocking it a few inches.

    Is it safe to leave this fountain running all day long, even when I'm not at home? I unplugged it this morning before I left for work, because I'm afraid something might happen while I'm not home. Am I just being paranoid? Please help!

    Asked by: Loriprl
    it needs to be cleaned at the very least once a week, or it gets noisy and the water stream only allows a small stream of water. It also gets noisy when the water level gets below about 3/4 full. I suspect that the stories you hear about the motor burning out or it being too noisy are related to people not realizing how high maintenance this product is. I run mine 24/7 but often times, I come home to it being too low in water or in need of motor cleaning if I haven't kept a close eye on it.

    I recently purchased a corner unit. Is it normal for bubbles to form on top of the water?

    Asked by: Sue C

    Can I get an item number for the replacement water filters, and where can I purchase.?

    Asked by: Jimbob 53

    Does the charcoal side of the filter face the bowl (out) or the back (in). I lost my instructions. Whisker City small pet fountain II.

    Asked by: Comanche Roger

    Does this fountain have a warranty? If so, how long is it?
