OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Let's start with the Catit Senses 2.0 Ball Dome and how it works. The plastic ball goes inside the dome, where the tilting plate sends it rolling around to entice your cat. The toy can be set to one of two play modes using the switch on the side. In continuous mode, the plate will move around until you turn it off or the batteries run out. In motion-activated mode, the toy only turns on when it detects your cat's movement nearby. After 25 seconds of no movement, it will go to sleep, but come back on again when the sensors detect new motion. The green plastic top of the dome is covered with openings that are large enough for cats to stick their paws in and bat at the ball. The top is removable and can be pulled out. You can also twist open the ball to put catnip inside and add some more excitement for your cat.

You may also be familiar with Catit's plastic flower fountain, and now the company has a new and improved design made with stainless steel. The idea behind this fountain is that the moving water will attract your cat and encourage them to drink to help them stay hydrated. It offers three water flow options. Leave the attachments out for a gentle flow; stick the white flower attachment in the center for a bubbling top; and finally add the yellow center piece to create calm streams. A triple-action filter is included to remove debris, odors, and impurities as well as soften tap water. It holds up to three liters of water, with a 'water window' on the side to tell you how much is left so you know when to refill. The window even includes an LED nightlight, allowing your kitty to quench their thirst day or night. Set-up is required but only takes about a couple of minutes.

Why Is It Useful?

The Ball Dome has holes on top that can fit most cats' paws and allows you to fill the ball inside with catnip to add to the phone (although it couldn't meet Harley and Lola's high standards, even with the catnip included).

The Stainless Steel Flower Fountain is quiet and compact to save space, so you will barely even notice it's there. It's easy to clean and dishwasher-safe. The moving streams will draw your cat to it to help keep them hydrated and healthy, while the filter ensures they are drinking clean water.

Who It’s For

Any cat can use these new items. The fountain is great for cats that need some encouragement to drink water and stay hydrated, and it even worked with a small dog.

What To Be Aware Of

The Ball Dome's tilting plate moves the ball around too slowly to make it exciting enough for Harley and Lola to want to play with. The toy also requires two AA batteries, not included.
