Make Sure Your Cat Stays Hydrated

It’s essential that your cat get enough water to keep him from dehydrating and becoming ill. Cats are not like dogs who drink lots of water at one time. Cats like cold, fresh water. Lots of cats like to drink the running water from a faucet or a bathtub. I allow my cats to do this.  Buy your cat a drinking fountain, they love it. I don’t know what I would do without mine. Both of my cats are always at the fountain and I can rest assure that they are hydrated.

Monitor your cat’s water intake. If your cat isn’t getting enough water, you should consider feeding him some wet canned food. I feed my cats on can of Fancy Feast per day along with their regular dry food. The canned food will cause you cat to take in larger amounts of water and more protein. The canned food generally contains a higher percentage of protein than dry food. You should always look at the labels of all the food that you would feed to your cat. Feeding your cat wet or moist food could prevent bladder issues later in life.

Remember, your pets count!
