Ours was broken for almost a week, so my person couldn't use it. I was so happy! But guess what, she got it fixed. I don't like it because it is very loud, so I hide under the bed when my person takes it out. She tells me when she is done, so I know it is okay to come from under the bed (she doesn't use it under there). She even has a smaller one she uses for the kitchen and bathroom floor. That one isn't quite as loud.
Edited to add: Dear Groucho, could you please tell your meowmie that my person found a better dish for my water. Guess where she got it, my grand-meowmie's house! Silly grand-meowmie says she is not a cat person, but I know better. It is a shallow, wide glass sauce dish that grand-meowmie found at the dollar store. Holds about six ounces of water.
With purrs of thanks,
