Catit® drinking fountain

Providing a good supply of fresh clean drinking water for cats is essential for their health and well being. A cat’s body tissue is made up of around 70% water - which is about the same as the prey they would catch in the wild - but for domestic cats, especially those on a diet of dry cat food, extra water is needed to prevent dehydration. Although canned pet food contains a high percentage of water most owners will feed a mixture of wet and dry food, so supplementary water is still needed to maintain health.

Cats prefer to drink from a running supply rather than from a bowl. Some owners will have seen their cats drinking from a dripping tap or sitting in the bath tub waiting hopefully for them to turn on a trickle of water.

Pet products manufacturer Rolf C. Hagen recommends providing a drinking water fountain such as those in its Catit® range. These hold a large supply of clean water – the Hagen fountains hold up to 3 litres – so there is plenty for several cats to drink even if their owner is away for a short while. Drinking fountains provide a continuous stream of re-circulating filtered water that’s free from the impurities present in static drinking bowls and cats enjoy drinking.

Dehydration in cats can be fatal; a good way of checking is to pull up the loose skin on the back of the neck and release it. If it springs back quickly the cat is sufficiently hydrated, but if it’s slow to recede suspect a problem. If the cat shows other symptons such as lethargy or sunken eyes, veterinary advice should be sought immediately. Conversely, excessive drinking of water can also signal trouble and may indicate kidney problems or conditions such as feline diabetes. Again, contact a vet if a significant change in drinking habits takes place.

“Most owners take great care when it comes to their cat’s food, but often drinking water is not given much thought,” said Hagen’s Marketing Manager Jackie Wilson. “Cats are fussy animals and drinking from a bowl of water that’s been sitting on the kitchen floor for a day or so is not going to encourage them to drink. A drinking water fountain is fun for cats to use and makes sure they get the water they need to keep healthy.”

Rolf C. Hagen is the largest independently owned pet supplies company in the world manufacturing a vast range of products for almost every kind of pet.
