Stainless Steel Double Feeder Dish Dog Cat Pet Food Water Bowl Retro Iron Stand
This behavior is generally thought to occur because instinct leads cats to prefer cool, flowing water. After all, flowing water is fresher than the stuff sitting in your cat’s dish. How can you resolve this behavior? Try investing in a pet drinking fountain. I’d recommend avoiding the ones made of plastic, though.
Years ago, I got a letter from a reader of , whose cat was making her crazy with his desire to splash all the water out of his bowl or tip it over so that his water ended up all over the floor. My advice: If your cat tips his water dish, get a bowl that’s wider on the bottom than on the top. If the dish isn’t clear, your cat might have an easier time finding the top of the water without tapping it with his paw. If kitty still finds a way to tip his dish, put it in a tray or a pie pan so the water doesn’t go everywhere.

Cat water bowls come in all sizes and styles. Perhaps you started off like I did with a standard kitchen dish filled with water. Then, discovering that many times it got low while you were absent, you maybe graduated to one that has a reservoir holding a lot more water. However, over time I got concerned that the water wasn't fresh and changed the water more frequently, at the same time cleaning the container. Then I took the leap to electric water recyclers. Provide a water source away from the food bowl. Cats seem to enjoy drinking water more when it is away from their food dish. This also encourages natural hunting/foraging behaviors to place water in more than one area.I have 2 cats. For water, they have a domed fountain with a bowl. The female drinks by licking from the fountain dome, all dainty and neat. The male drinks by shoving his face in the dish, leaving his entire lower jaw dripping. He never wants attention half so much as when he thinks he can wipe his face dry on my arm.I bought one of those water dishes that has a plastic bottle that you can fill up and it replaces the water in the bowl as the cats drink it. Great idea except I have one particular cat, a sable devil called Sid (Sid Vicious), who is a teenage ball of fun but loves to put his paw in the water. Therefore, the water always has something floating in it and doesn’t seem clean. It seems I’m emptying the water out before it’s time and of course, cleaning the inside bowl as well. I’m thinking about just replacing it with a metal bowl like the other one I have. What is your advice?We have several of the Drinkwell 360 automatic watering bowls in our house (we have 23 cats too) and if it be knocked over, I'm sure it would have by now!! A couple of the smaller guys like to put their feet on the cone near where the water spouts are and "hold it" while the drink. They hold a gallon of water each and hey are kinda heavy when full. I used to have several heavy ceramic dishes I used for water previously, and those did get knocked over regularly. Your kitty may have run out of water and was "tapping" the bowl to see if any more would magically appear. They really do seem to be mesmerized by the sight and sound of the water - and I like it too!!! I found the best price on Amazon in case you want to check them out. Good luck...Water dish: Cats aren’t especially thirst-driven, yet, dehydration, a serious medical emergency, can happen very quickly. Fill the water dish every day with fresh and clean water. Refresh and change the cat’s water several times a day to encourage your cat to drink water.
