My Cat drinks water all the time

by Rochelle
(Bay City MI USA)

My cat is addicted to water. She is 11 years, very small; she can hear me getting a glass of water for myself when she is on the other side of the house. She is constantly drinking out of my water glasses, licking the wet toothbrushes, the tub the name it she is there. Recently she has been diving into my coffee, soda or other none water drinks. She has also started pooping in my bed and aimlessly roaming around for hours at a time. Her once funny behaviors are becoming more serious and serious over time. Not to mention she snores louder than a human being these days. I could not find a site that had these distinct issues; Please help. I think she may be on her way out. By the way her name is CoCo. Thank you!

Answer from Kate
well there are some medical conditions which can make a cat very thirsty. Diabetes is one see this page for more on this

Your best option is to have her checked over by a vet. At 11 she is moving into middle to late age and she may have developed an illness which needs treatment.

Her roaming around for hours may also be an indication of some distress she may be feeling and so i do think having her checked by a vet at this stage would be a good idea.

Best wishes Kate
