Announcement   Welcome to Wet Whiskers Fountains! We offer high quality, beautiful, handmade ceramic water fountains for cats and for dogs.
Skillfully and carefully hand crafted, each fountain is made using qualified standard ceramic safety standards in materials that contain no toxins, heavy metals, unsafe plastics and no sharp or pointed protrusions. We take great care to create safe fountains for your cats with soft edges and smooth curves with an artistic look that you can enjoy. Like the unique personalities of our pets, you will find that our fountains are unique and stylish, but primarily extremely functional.
We put time in nearly everyday working on some aspect of the production of them., from working at the wheel, shaping and carving the towers and domes, and mixing our glazes. We love making these fountains.
When you purchase from us you get a complete set which includes:
The ceramic fountain basin and dome cover, water safe PVC/silicone fittings,
the plumbed in long lasting, quiet, high quality electric filter pump, one matching tile to cover the pump cord, one long lasting satchel containing precisely measured for your fountain, concentrated activated carbon for water freshness and purity between cleanings, one matching food bowl, complete instructions and details about your fountain. No extra purchases needed! We do offer extra satchels and additional food bowls. Please ask. Oh also... your husband called and said "let her buy anything she wants!"
You will see that we make three styles in a variety of designs.
THE FLAT TOP. Our design is for the cat who has long fur and you prefer they not get soaked while drinking water. This model is also ideal for the kitty who persistently wants to play in their water, getting it dirty too quickly, or getting water all over the counter or floor. >^..^<
THE BUBBLE DOME. A wonderful style for the easy going cat who simply prefers an open bowl of water to drink from. Great too for a houseful of kitty's or older ones. While the water bounces and gurgles on the dome, they get to utilize their instinct to stalk and drink moving water. We put simple textured designs on top of the domes, many cats enjoy the feel of the texture on their tongue. This dome can be completely submersed or the top can be slightly above the level of the water.
THE TOWER DOME. Comes in a variety of styles. Many cats enjoy drinking from them because they do not have to lower their heads into a water bowl. If you have a faucet drinker, this is a great way to get your furry one to break the habit and you will not be running water down the drain. Very large cats enjoy the tower for the comfortable position and less strain to their necks. Most towers are 6" - 8" tall inside the basin.
**We are not taking custom order requests at this time. We are making every effort to supply a nice variety of colors and styles. We hope you will continue to watch our shop to find the one that is right for you and your cats. Feel free to inquire though, we may be able to do the glaze and style you like best.
We offer a flat rate shipping of $29.99 within the continental USA. (Alaska, Hawaii and International buyers please ask us, so we can get a shipping estimate for you.)
We invite you to visit our website to see and learn more about our us and our happy customers at Wetwhiskersfountains.com

My fountain arrived after about 10 days and so far we love it. At first our 3 cats approached it tentatively and were quite nervous about it. Finally our older male kitty (who is a kidney kitty) started drinking from it. The little girls (just over a year old) quickly followed suit after watching him. It would be a beautiful piece even if it weren't a fountain. Initially it was a bit loud but we turned the pump down to minimum and it's good now. I was also happy with the interaction with Denise during the ordering process.

LOVE this fountain. And so does our little fuzzball. We have never seen him drink so much and he loves to occasionally play in it! :D The quality of the fountain is fantastic, along with the beautiful stylish ceramic glaze. I highly recommend this product for your feline friends!

The fountain is so beautiful and has plenty of space for my kitties to drink from! Ours has a nice tranquil trickling sound, though we are able to manuever the spout to make no sound. Very lovely and easy to set up!

About

A Healthy Pet Is a Happy Pet

I love ceramics! The variety and possibilities are endless. The use of ceramics dates back to the beginnings of mankind. Ceramics are useful, artistic, whimsical and in my honest opinion, a piece should be in every home.
I began the art of throwing pottery in my high school years. I was an active football player, and this was the perfect way for me to unwind, relax and create. Over the years I have studied in college, community courses and private classes to improve my skills. I have been fortunate over the years to produce in volume and also create one of kind pieces.
I made my first ceramic fountain for our cat, because we were told by our veternarian that fresh, filtered water would be beneficial to her health problem. After seeing positive results, I began to make these fountains for family and friends as well. I also often donate to shelters, animal hospital clinics, and other charitable foundations. I honestly enjoy making them and I enjoy creating new designs being inspired from the places we go, people we meet, the wonders of nature, what's trending, etc. With the encouragement of my family and friends, I decided to go commercial. So besides my own website, I am very happy to be found among many talented craftsmen here on Etsy.
I invite you to watch our YouTube videos. We have a few. Find the links below.
The first is "Your Fountain has Arrived" a slide presentation that demonstrates how easy it is to set up your fountain.
The second is "It's Time to Clean Your Fountain" a detailed slide presentation on how to clean your fountain to maintain its functionality and good looks.
We hope you find them helpful and entertaining.
My wife and I like to do research on whatever endeavor we undertake. We gain understanding of how things work, what doesn't and what to avoid. So with that, we determined to make the safest fresh water delivery system possible.
• I use the finest quality stoneware grade clay in my fountains. I do not skimp on the amount of clay I use. The ceramic pieces are stable, sturdy and well formed. I bisque fire, hand glaze, then fire again at the proper temperatures and time frames.
• I use the finest quality premixed glazes, as well as hand mixed glazes, adhering closely to the proven recipes. I monitor the glazes to insure they are always food safe, non toxic and will not fade in color.
* I include activated carbon satchel as an additive to remove odors, bad bacteria, heavy metal tastes and other contaminates that occur naturally in our tap water.
Science has proven that activated carbon is healthful for humans and animals and contributes to creating a balanced good flora bacteria in our intestines, increasing good overall health.
• On the business and personal side, we work with you, our customer, for complete satisfaction. If you have questions about what style or design to use, we are happy to offer our suggestions to you. We respond promptly when you favorite us and when you purchase. You can read over our Reviews as testimonials to this. We offer our personal assistance to you should you have any questions.
We have made many friends along the way and we look forward to making many more.

As animal lovers, we know that our cats and dogs need plenty of water. In nature animals in the wild are drawn to moving water, instinct tells them it is fresher and purer than water that stands still. So a well made fountain in your home is a wonderful way to supply your best friend(s) with fresh, filtered water they will enjoy drinking and benefit from.

I want to share my designs with everyone who also wants to see their pets well hydrated and healthier for life.
Please feel free to contact me anytime.

We appreciate all the favorites we receive to our fountains and our shop. Please keep those coming!
Here at ETSY, our inventory rotates frequently. Please don't hesitate on your favorited item, we would hate for you to miss out! >^_^<

Thank you for stopping by, being our friend and, may you be blessed in loving and caring for your wonderful animal friends!

Frequently asked questions

Does the pump make noise?

The filter pump runs virtually silent, some with a slight hum. When it needs to be cleaned, it can rattle.

How often should I clean my fountain?

You should clean the fountain at least once a week, but depending on how many cats/dogs are using the fountain, you can go as long as ten days before it really needs to be cleaned.

How much water does the fountain hold?

Most of my fountains hold at least 6 cups of water, some up to 8. It depends on the style.

Can a get a fountain I like in a different color glaze?

We try to keep a good variety of styles and colors in the shop. Sometimes we will do a custom order. We ask that you pay in advance and allow us 2 - 3 weeks to complete the order.

Do you have matching food dishes?

Yes. We glaze one food dish to match each fountain. Please ask if you want more than one food dish, we may be able to include it with your set. If not, please allow 2 - 3 weeks to get one or more made for you.

How do I know if my cat will drink from a dripping fountain or the bowl?

If you have seen your cat drink from the dripping or running water of a faucet, it is likely they would enjoy the tower design that drips or runs the water from it.
If your cat regularly drinks from a water bowl, a good choice would be a bubble dome style.

Shipping can be expensive, what is your solution to this?

Our shipping costs are set to a flat rate of $29.99 within the continental USA. We have found that this covers almost every state with no additional costs. If there are, we take care of it for you.
We ship using FedEx Home Delivery. We have established a good relationship with them and they handle our packages carefully and deliver in a timely manner. They will send you a courtesy message when they are within a day or two of delivery so that you can plan ahead.
For shipping outside the continental USA, please contact us so that we can make arrangements for shipping to you.

I'm not sure if my cat will use the fountain even though I know they are better than a bowl of water. What happens if he doesn't like the fountain?

Most cats prefer to drinking moving water. Instinct tells them moving means fresh, so most cats are interested in a fountain. Some cats are simply low water drinkers especially if they are fed wet food.
We provide several tips on how to encourage your cat to drink from the fountain in the instructions you receive also.

How do I know what size to get?

We make a variety of sizes ranging from 9" diameter basin to up to 12" basin. A 9" - 10" basin is ideal for the solitary cat. 10" and larger will hold enough water for two or more.
