Water amount question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
how do I know if my kitten is drinking enough? She has a drink-well fountain and I have only seen her use it a few times. I also tried still cool water, but I never catch her drinking. Should I be concerned or am I just a nervous nell with my new love?

I'm not sure what to tell you other than I don't always see our kitties drinking but I know they are drinking much more than before now that we have the pet fountain. I have to top up the water more often.

When you scoop her litter, how many clumps are there, i.e., is she going to the bathroom for #1?

Hopefully Hissy or someone with much more knowledge or experience will be along soon to possibly give you a much better answer than I.

I also don't always see Loki drinking - but I do know from his pee as well as pinch test (pull skin on neck and if it snapps back kitty is well hydrated) that he gets enough fluids.

my problem is quite hte reverse.
my kitty drinks lots of water...and go peeing like 3-4 times a day.
i usually find 3 - 4 clumps...is it too much? does it indicate any problems????

I felt the same way about not seeing my cat drink. I got him a new fountain in September and the first time I saw him drinking out of it was last week! BUT, I know he was getting water because he pees a lot. There is also a lot in his food, though.
