Every single cat owner wants to make sure that their loved pet is properly taken care of at all times and that all their needs are fulfilled. However, the thing with cats or really any sort of pet is that you sometimes have a hard time understanding their needs and you might not know what is right. Especially if your cat is new to you and you are still figuring things out, you might have some trouble coming up with the right thing to do.
With things like your cat’s hydration you might have to take some time to figure out how things are going to work, but if you are struggling then we have a few tips that you could follow to make sure that your cat gets the right amount of water on a daily basis. What you mostly need to know is that the amount of water you cat will drink also depends on the type of food they eat, how old they are, and what gender they might be.
Generally a 5 kg cat will need to consume about 250 milliliters of water on a daily basis but that can change according to different factors. For example the type of food you feed the cat. If the cat is mostly fed wet food then their thirst and need for water will also go down quite a bit as wet food is mainly water content. However dry food has very little water content and can make your cat thirstier than normal and so it will drink more water too. The older your cat will get the more they will need water as well. Older cats are more likely to contract some form of urinary disease and so to stay healthy they will increase the amount of water they consume.
