7 Best Fresh Water Pet Fountains Keep Cats And Dogs From Dehydration

Fresh running water does have great appeal, even to pets.  Take cats, for example: it's the rare one who will even drink from a bowl of "stagnant" water.  And when you think about it, cats have it right... who wants to drink out of a bowl or a glass of water that's been sitting there for half a day or so?  Perhaps that's why the latest trend in pet drinking is not the 'pet bowl,' it's the 'pet fountain,' where water flows constantly, or on demand. There are many fresh water fountains on the market, but I thought these 7 stood out as the best in terms of quality and design:

Facebook's 'Graph Search' Is Another Name For Mobile Advertising

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Shakespeare was onto something back in 1600 AD, when he penned that famous Romeo and Juliet line. Its import intimates that its not the name of things that matter, it what those things really are.
