Our cats have worked themselves into a very lucky position and seem to have cast a spell over us mere humans. The life for the pampered pet cat is one long swirl of toys, food, cuddles and more toys! The Catit brand seems to have fallen under the spell of the paw big time, working round the clock to invent more and more frolicking fun for our furbods.
I adore all of the Catit products but the two I will review today are the Flower Water Fountain and the Catit Senses Wellness Centre.
Catit Flower Water Fountain
I love this water fountain. It looks lovely and fresh, is very compact, easy to clean and best of all; cats can’t get enough of the running water. Most cat owners have, at some stage of ownership, watched their cats drink from the kitchen tap or found their cats waiting by the shower until their owner lightly turns on the shower head. Yes, we have all been there. So, it makes sense that a water fountain made for cats was in the pipeline. Drinking regularly is important for a cat’s health, as it helps ensure proper kidney function and prevents crystal formation that can lead to urinary diseases.
The Water Flower Fountain is really easy to set up and has three settings to suit every personality – gentle flow, bubbling top or calm streams. My only concern is the ‘very slight’ buzzing noise the fountain makes. The sound blends into the background after a while but this may put off a cat that is slightly nervous. However, judging by my cats reaction and the hundreds of cats on You Tube, it seems that the ‘slight’ mechanical noise doesn’t bother most cats. In fairness, I haven’t come across an electrical or battery operated cat product that is totally silent.
There’s a wealth of information on the Catit Flower Water Fountain HERE including lots of videos of very happy cats drinking water!
Catit Senses Wellness Centre
This product has covered everything for our hedonistic mogs. It has massage ridges, soft cushion pads, nose rubs, and cheek rubs with a section to place some catnip leaves. I can’t think of anything else this pleasure centre has left out apart from a constant supply of live mice!
Once again, this product is really easy to put together, comes with clear instructions and is very easy to clean. It has been designed for kittens and cats of all shapes and sizes so the perfect xmas present. I have no cons to say about this. It’s the ultimate pleasure puss wellness centre which sadly won’t accommodate the size of us humans. There’s a business idea right there!
Again, plenty of information on the Catit website.
Both products are highly recommended in this Catit cat product review. No monies were exchanged in doing the review of the above items but its been a pleasure to receive such wonderful and well thought out cat products.
Come on. What are you waiting for! Xmas is only 3 weeks away!!! GULP.
