Why You Should Consider Getting A Water Fountain For Your Cat

Many cats are suffering from chronic dehydration without their owners knowing about it. They tend to consume less water than what their body normally needs each day. With time, this can have a negative impact on their health and well-being. One way to encourage your pet to drink enough water is a water fountain. Here are important reasons why you should consider having a water fountain for your furball. 

  • Cats seems to be fascinated with running water. Behaviorists believe that this is one reason some cats tap the water in their bowl before taking a drink. Cats hate still and stagnant water sources. 
  • Certain odors or taste in tap water may be unacceptable to cats and they won’t hesitate to turn their nose and won’t drink at all. 
  • The running water in the fountain looks more like a natural source and cats often like the taste better. 

Sudden changes in your cat’s water intake and/or urine output should be checked by a vet clinic Des Moines, IA.
