The Torus is comprised of two parts - a drinking well and a water storage area. The bowl's walls store and protect water, and when in the unlocked position, water flows from the storage area to the drinking well, automatically replenishing your pet's water supply as she drinks. The activated carbon in the bowl's replaceable filter reduces trace elements and flavors found in tap water.
Another nice feature of the Torus is that its rubber feet and wide base prevent accidental spills. I don't know if you're like me, but there are times I'll be busy in the kitchen and accidentally knock over Lita's water bowl. I don't have to worry about knocking the Torus over, though.
The bowl is also insulated to help keep your pet's water cooler. I have personally noticed that the Torus keeps water cooler than Milita's other water bowls. Torus is made from Food Grade Polypropylene (plastic) and is not covered with BPA or any other substance.
Though I do not travel with my cats, the Torus is a good water bowl to take on trips. You can fill the bowl's reservoir and put the bowl's cap in the "lock" position to keep the water from entering the drinking well area. When your pet needs a drink on the road, simply unlock the bowl and water will flow from the reservoir to the drinking well, giving your pet fresh water to consume.

What Did Milita and Carmine Think?
Carmine typically drinks from his fountains, but I have seen him use the Torus, too.
As I stated earlier, Milita prefers to drink from a bowl rather than from a fountain. I put the Torus near her favorite water bowl in the kitchen so she'd have a choice as to which one she wanted to drink from. I've seen her choose to drink from the Torus bowl over the other water dish more times than not. Obviously she really likes the new bowl!
Our Torus holds two liters of water. In my opinion, this size bowl would be best for dogs. However, Torus is coming out with a one-liter bowl soon, which I think would be perfect for cats.
If you have a cat who prefers to drink from a water dish rather than a fountain, I would definitely recommend the Torus.
