How can i get my cat to drink more water?

Put out several bowls of fresh water to encourage it to drink. Pet water fountains are a great investment as well. They keep the water fresher longer, making it more appealing to the cat. Cats prefer to drink from stainless steel or glass bowls rather than plastic.

You can try to make a “soup” by mixing equal amounts of canned cat good with water. This is something a cat won’t refuse and you get more liquid in them. For a cat that likes milk, add some of the milk to water to give it that flavor. You can also add ice cubes to the water to encourage more drinking. Many cat owners find it best to let water trickle out of a faucet for the pleasure of their cat’s drinking needs – and many felines prefer this method. If you think there’s a bigger problem please consult your veterinarian.
