Cat-Tip for the Day =^..^= Be Sure Kitty Drinks Water.
This is something I have found works to help kitties drink enough water throughout the day. If you find that the water bowl next to the food dish never gets touched, I suggest you add one or two more bowls of water in different areas of the house. I have 2 bowls on each floor for 6 cats and it seems to work well. My grand-kitty Hugo while visiting was known to not drink very much water from bowls so I let him get his water from the bathroom sink. He also will drink a little from a bowl that is sitting by itself somewhere where he least expects it. He acts like he just found something that the others don't know about and claims it as his. Very cute.
I know of cat-sitting clients that leave a glass of water on a counter or bed-table for their cat and when I visit I notice that is where the cat has been drinking from, not the bowl next to the food. Cats in the wild do not have their water next to their food. They eat and then walk to the watering hole. Maybe there is something to that with these little 'geniuses'.
I am off to visit Smudge and today I start with a family of three; two black & 1 Abby. Good weekend ahead. Hope you have a great day.
..Koko had jumped down from the desk and was walking from the room with that particular, stiff-legged gait that denoted supercilious disapproval. He paused in the doorway only long enough to switch his tail contemptuously - twice - before completing his haughty exit. "I guess I offended him," Qwilleran said to Yum-Yum,"He's temperamental, but we have to make allowances for genius, don't we?"
