Most cats do not find the habit of drinking water necessary or pleasing enough, especially if it is still or standing water. Dehydration, characterized by excessive heart rate, loss of appetite, lethargy or depression, dry gums, and decrease in skin elasticity, may occur. Therefore, it is important to monitor your cat’s water intake.
I am a British American. My name is Clarissa, and I am your friendly neighborhood cat lover and veterinarian. I have four children, a wonderful husband, and three cats I cherish with all my heart. As a pet parent and a veterinarian, I’ve worked with many cats, and I want to impart all the wisdom I’ve learned to the people who need it the most: other pet parents.
