hot weather: how do you get your cat to drink?
With the hot weather recently, my cat is not drinking very much. She normally urinates a lot. She seems to have urinated once in the last day. I keep changing the water in her bowl, in the hopes she will drink more. But unless I catch her drinking, I don't know if the level is going down due to evaporation. I work at home, am here all day, and am using air conditioning, though its still not exactly cool in here.
She is in good health, and had a check-up with blood work a month ago, and was fine. She has no history of kidney problems. Her activity level in the hottest part of the day is almost nil. Of course she persists in laying, most of the time, not in front of fans or cool places like tile floors, but in front of the refrigerator, where warm air comes out the vents at the base.
Thanks for your suggestions!
