If you are a new cat owner, chances are you are unfamiliar with supplies you should purchase. Here are three must-have items.
1. Cat Water Fountain
a) Why This is Good for Your Cat
A cat fountain is a needed supply for several reasons:
Your feline friend has a low thirst drive. This means he is not getting the hydration he needs for good elimination and organ health. If your cat is getting high moisture food he’ll get some water that way. But, it’s not enough. Felines develop such problems as urinary tract infection and kidney disease if they don’t get sufficient water.
Unlike a dog that will readily lap still water from his bowl, your cat does not like stagnant water. Cats like running water. Tap water is often not preferred because of its odor or taste. Cats also don’t like their water near their food dish.
That’s why a water fountain with its constantly moving water may encourage your cat to drink more. It looks and smells and tastes like spring water. looks more like a natural source in the wild would and often tastes better.
