What’s in your cat water dish? Hopefully, it’s clean!
Water for everyone is important and especially for your cat. Cats and water have always been an interesting subject—whether it be cats that absolutely love water or those that absolutely hate it.
Rags, my cat drinks water all the time. Of course, he’s 19-years old and he is in renal failure. Renal failure can be a quick thing or a slow thing depending on your cat’s body. For example, Rags drinks a lot of water and I give him fluids on a regular basis, so his kidneys are getting more water than, let’s say, someone else’s cat, therefore his kidneys will take a longer time to shrivel up, which eventually will lead to death.
There are some great products on the market to help encourage your cat drink more water. First, of course, you’ll want a water dish. There is also, the ever-so-popular cat water drinking fountain, which can be costly if you have to replace the cat water pump that comes with it.
