Charlie shows interest in water to play with it, but will not drink it – I attribute this to the fact that he is on an all wet food diet and isn’t interested in water. Rags was on a dry food diet the majority of his life, so he was always needing to drink to make up for the difference in moisture in his diet.
Here’s a video I snapped when he was 18 drinking water from a faucet:
Of course, by the time Rags was 18 he was in early stages of renal failure, so his thirst had also increased tremendously.
If your cat drinks water from the faucet, how did it start? What is your cat’s diet?
