where is his water bowl? Directly next to his food bowl? If yes this may be your answer as to why he doesn't use it so much
, a water bowl shouldn't be placed next to the food bowl if this can be avoided. Or the bowl is too narrow for him, so that his whiskers touch the sides when he's drinking. Or he'd brefer stale water that's afew days old.
My cats prefer to use a vase which is ca. 30 cm high and allows them to drink without having to lower their heads
. They also like to drink out of the 2-3 bowls we've placed in the garden, so this would be rain water or tap water, depending on the weather.
They usually drink 3-4 times a day, and yes- the kidney function is OK, we had a blood screening done two weeks ago
Why all of our cats drink so much I really don't know, as many people seem to say that their cats hardly drink.
