How Much Water Should a Cat Drink?


The amount of water required by a cat will totally depend on the diet the cat is on. A cat on an all-dry food diet would need more supplemental drinking water than a cat on an exclusive raw or canned food diet. Likewise, a cat on a combination of dry and canned food also needs more drinking water. Generally, an average cat requires approximately 60-80ml of water per Kilogram of body weight, depending on the weather and how active the cat is.

There is no set amount of water a cat should drink in a day. They will drink when they are thirsty. Leave fresh water out and the cat will help itself when it wants to.
