My Cat is Not drinking

my cat isn't drinking her water what should I do? And should I be worried?

Answer by Kate
Some cats are drinkers some are not. Also if she is eating wet food then she will get moisture from that. Also if she goes out you don't know if she is drinking from puddles etc which cats will do and is perfectly ok as long as they have had all there shots.

However there is a danger that if a cat does not get enough fluid that they can develop urinary infections. My female cat did. we solved this by feeding her only dry complete cat food, this encouraged her to drink water and the infections cleared up. but every cat is different so you will have to experiment, say half wet food and half dry.

best wishes Kate
