Hi, I have a question about my 8 month old kitten,
she seems to dislike drinking from her water bowl and instead drinks from cups, bowls (But not her water bowl) sinks, baths, and even from the shower! :?

Any suggestions?

Thankyou

is her water bowl plastic. I have had, and have a friend that does have a cat that doesnt like to drink out of plastic bowls. We arent sure why, maybe it makes the water taste funny... just a thought..

My cats also enjoy drinking from the showers and sinks. They act like they've never drank water before, even though they have a PetMate water fountain cleaned daily, and they all love that. So it's just a funny quirk that they'll still drink from all the other places.

Most cats really like fresh water, if it's running even better. Is her water bowl cleaned and the water changed often? Kermitt's right, if it's plastic the cat may not like it because it will retain smells.

If you're worried that she's not getting enough to drink, you could see if she takes to a water bottle for rabbits (get one in the largest size). She might prefer that, as it's more similar to a tap, and it has the added advantage of being impossible to spill.
