Your cat needs to drink plenty of water, especially if he is on a dry diet. Most owners make the mistake of offering water beside the food bowl, thinking that itâs nice for a cat to have a little drink with his meal. Water will be more readily accepted if it is away from food, ideally in a different room.
Water bowls can be ceramic and most cats like a nice big bowl. Keep the bowl topped up to the rim to enable the cat to lap from the edge yet still see the surface of the water. Providing a rainwater receptacle in the garden is a must as there are those cats that would much rather have rainwater than the stuff that we drink out of our taps!
Some cats also prefer running water, so a pet water fountain can be purchased as a more practical source than a constantly dripping tap!
Cats love drinking running water so this is a perfect alternative to leaving your tap on all day! It runs on mains electricity and recycles the water by pumping from the reservoir, up into the spout.
Cat Mate Pet Fountain
This is another alternative to the running water theme with the added attraction that the water can be drunk from reservoirs on two levels.
