Did you know that stagnant water in a bowl can be harmful and potentially deadly your pet? As well as not drinking enough water...
A staggering 1 in 3 cats develop kidney disease, (dogs are also at risk). Most pet owners don't understand how this happens or how to prevent it.
So allow me to shed some light.
I was simply looking for a solution to the issue that ALL of my (5) cats were not drinking from their bowl. Look, they would drink from a bowl, but it was only occasionally and only seemed to be only the minimal amount to get them by.
I could clearly see they were simply not drinking enough and I found this concerning, after all water is a basic necessity of life. At that time I wasn't aware of the health issues such as kidney disease that they were at risk of developing. I just knew it wasn't ideal.
We all know the importance of water. If we, or any living creature doesn't get enough good quality water, the health implications can be significant.
I had already implemented everything I could think of to ensure they were getting the freshest water, the bowls were cleaned daily, even tried different types of bowls but the problem persisted. Nothing changed.
As a breeder of purebred cats, (but not only that, as a lover of cats, and they are part of my family), this was something I was going to find a solution for. And so I started to research.
After researching the issue I found some interesting information:
Now firstly, water is essential for cats, and not milk. Milk is now considered old-school and if you are still offering your cat/s milk, it would be ideal to slowly transition them to water. They do not need milk, infact it is argued they are in fact intolerant to milk/lactose so yes water is best.
And honestly water is one of the few essentials cats really need. Apart from food, shelter and love, water is absolutely essential. Which is why cats are considered one of the easiest pets to care for.
Water, fresh and clean water needs to be available for them 24/7, this is essential.
Here are the reasons why:
Offering your pet a water drinking fountain is the ideal way to ensure your pet is receiving fresh, healthy water.
There are several reasons why having the pet drinking fountain available for your cat, dog or other pet can be an excellent idea.
Cats, (as well as dogs) can stop drinking from standard water bowls for a number of reasons as detailed above, offering the running water of our water fountain, naturally attracts them to drink from the water
Cats prefer running water, running water from a pet fountain is oxygenated, preventing harmful germs to harbor and breed as they do in still water
Did you know that cats have a low thirst drive? In the wild, most of a cat's water intake would come from their food, which is high-moisture-containing meat, so they do not naturally have high thirst. However they don't receive this moisture from their pet food which may cause or exacerbate a myriad of feline health problems for indoor, domesticated cats, including urinary tract and kidney diseases. The fountain encourages them to drink more
Cats are more auditory, therefore the sight and smell of water does not peak their instincts as much as sounds does, therefore the sound of running water encourages them to drink more
With the encouragement to drink more provided by the drinking fountain, pets hydration requirements are more likely to be met, potentially reducing the risk of numerous health issues
Water fountain being at the right height supports the pets posture, making it comfortable to drink
Water fountain does not obstruct the cats whiskers making drinking comfortable and reducing the risk of whisker fatigue
