Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows if its normal for a cat to drink about a cup of water a day, maybe more. My cat is 13 yrs old and just had a check-up but I've noticed that he's drinks more now than he use to. Is this normal?
Just an FYI, my Ginger drinks a MINIMUM of 6-8 ounces of water a day, and I'm pleased that she does. This way I know for sure she's getting enough water - I'm always hearing that cats need more water, not less.
She is not diabetic, she's very healthy. She drinks more a day now than she did a year ago - it sounds perfectly normal to me, but if you are concerned, the vet is always the best place to call/go.
