Hey, can we have a refill here

Ok, so cats aren't programmed to want to drink. In the wild, they get their liquid, and hydration from the body fluids and blood of their prey. So pet cats on commercial food diets may not be drinking enough. Feeding wet food helps to alleviate this lack of moisture. In addition, ways to encourage your cat to drink have to be devised. Most people will just leave out a bowl of water. But take your cue from your cat. Most cats don't like stagnant water and will refuse to drink if it's not fresh. Back in the day, Joey would overturn the water bowl and sit by it, and meow her demands for a fresh change when you approach. We got round it by using one of those anti-topple food dishes. It thwarted her, but it didn't stop her from asking for fresh water! Now we use a cat water fountain (view), and it's been great, Joey has her fresh water anytime of day, without needing us minions to peovide service. The fountain's successful in enticing even the camel-sque Teddy, 8 now, to enjoy his drink, which is doubly important because he's prone to FUS - he's had bladder stones removed at the very young age of 3. - Check out the purrsNswipes Adoption Guidebook - Meet our homeseekers - Go to Pawprints: TLC for other cat minon requisite education
