A reminder to keep an eye on your #cats as summer heats up! 🐱 [thread]
Cats don't regulate their thirst like dogs or humans.
In the wild, cats get most of their moisture from food, like rodents. When they're thirsty, their 1st instinct is to eat, not drink.
Many cats are also picky about their water source. They don't like water that's close to their food or water that's stagnant. (Could be contaminated.)
❗ Make sure they have fresh, clean water at all times. Provide wet food, if you can.
