Re: He's not drinking water - But eating tons of wet food?
Cats are originally desert animals and their system is 'designed' to live off the moisture gained from their prey, which is about 70% water. Wet food is also about 70% water, so there is very little need for a cat to supplement by drinking water from a bowl.
A cat eating dry food needs to consume 1.25+ cups of water for every cup of dry food that they eat in order to get the proper amount of hydration. Dry food contains about 10% moisture. The problem is that while they do consume quite a bit, most cats will never offset the total amount and end up spending their life partially dehydrated, often leading to urinary issues.
So it sounds like Jack is doing great on his new wet diet!
