Why Do Cats Love Running Water

Sunday, June 21, 2015

CATRUNNING WATERMy cats fight to get a drink of the running shower water. It’s a ritual in our home. My older cat Molly, makes sure that she claims her spot on the tub first. The first thing I have to do when I get up is to turn the shower on for her. Millie has to wait her turn.

Why do cats love running water? One reason is that cats recognize water more easily when it’s running. , Some cats will pat at water in a dish or submerge whiskers assessing where the water level is. Some cats will not drink out of water dishes near the food bowls.

You have to make sure that your cat gets enough water everyday to prevent dehydration and possibly kidney failure. This is why I make sure that I open the faucet for my cats. Make sure you keep fresh, cold water in your cats water bowl all the time.

Remember, your pets count!
