Guess what? I am officially a SkyMall kitty, just like in the song! My human came home with a Drinkwell Platinum fountain — the very same one you see at the beginning of the video. Well, except she didn’t get it from SkyMall. She actually got it from Petsmart.
The truth is we already had a regular Drinkwell fountain, except it got busted because the dog kept coming in and drinking it dry (even though she has her own water in the enclosed patio!), and my human’s boyfriend kept forgetting to refill it after she did that. Finally the motor burnt out. This has happened a few times and each time my human paid for a new one. This time she got fed up and told her boyfriend he had to pay for it. But even though they searched all over they couldn’t find one like the one we had. The closest they could find was the Platinum, which was considerably more expensive than the regular Drinkwell fountain. The good part about that is that he has been pretty good about making sure to refill the fountain regularly since then. As you can see, there is an occasional struggle over domestic chores at my house.
But no matter how we got it, I think a Platinum Drinkwell fountain is only my due. I am a SkyMall kitty (if only an honorary one), and I deserve the best.
Although who got the better end of this deal may be up for debate.
