DIY cat water fountain
Many cats love to drink running water... and many cat owners realize this when their fur friends decide to drink from a dripping faucet rather than their water bowl.
This reddit user decided to build his very own cat watter fountain!
"I recycled a water pump from a broken fish filter. Borrowed a tube of silicone from work. Bought two porcelain bowls for 15 dollars."
"I silconed the dish on an angle. I used the toilet roll to steady it for drying."
"I took a gravel vaccum and cut the tube to the length I needed. (sorry mom..)"
"I fed the tube through the space between the two bowls and attached it to the pump."
"This was a bit tricky. I bent the tube to angle it down the bowl and clamped it for drying. The tube kept popping up and made a bit of a mess. Once the silicone became gummy, I peeled off any extra silicone on the bowl."
"The pump was so powerful, I turned it on and it sprayed everywhere. So I just adjusted the tube to make the flow slower."
"Tada! Crush likes it :)"
"No more drinking from the sink and getting mohawks."
I however do not have the skills to make such a fountain with my clumsy hands, so, I'll stick to bowls and a dripping faucet.
