A healthy cat can go four or five days without water, but please don’t make her go through that.

Dehydration is a slow and painful process that thickens the blood, saps energy and disturbs the balance of salt and water in the body. Dehydration affects older cats more quickly than it does younger cats and in any case can happen more quickly in warmer conditions.

Your cat needs to drink 20-40 milliliters per kilogram in weight. A cat that weighs 6 kilograms (12 pounds) should be drinking around 180 milliliters (6 fluid ounces) of water a day.
