Cats’ preference for fresh water

Have you ever noticed your feline friend turning up their nose at a bowl of water that’s been sitting out for a while? Cats are known for their finicky behavior when it comes to water, and one of their preferences is for fresh, clean water.

In the wild, cats are instinctively drawn to running water, as it is less likely to be contaminated. This preference has carried over into our homes, where many cats will opt for a dripping faucet or a pet water fountain over a stagnant bowl of water.

To ensure that your cat stays hydrated and happy, it’s important to provide them with fresh water daily. This means changing their water bowl regularly and keeping it clean. Some cats even enjoy drinking from a glass of water or a running tap, so don’t be surprised if your feline friend has a unique way of getting their H2O fix.

Remember, hydration is key to your cat’s overall health and well-being, so pay attention to their water preferences and make sure they always have access to fresh water. Your cat will thank you with purrs and cuddles!
