Hydrating The Body-Pt. 1
Oh Meow, What a weekend. fire boomers all weekend long and funnew stowrms too. And fun at Cat Scouts and da Tabby Cat club too. Meez so tired. And yous know what? Me kulda been dehudwated too wiff all dat runnin’ wound out in da heat. But fankfully weez got furesh water available all da time. And not just any ole bowl of water eever, weez got a kitty fountain to dwink fwum. And yous know how much fun kitty fountains awe. Yous wunnewin’ why me be ramblin’ on ‘bout meez kitty fountain awen’t you? Well it’s cuz me wants to talk to you ‘bout sumfin’ weally purrtant today and dat’s Hydwation. Me told you earlier this mumff dat July be Pet Hydwation Awareness Mumff. And you all know how purrtant it be dat we all stay hydwated. Isn’t dat wight mommy?
Yes Dezi that’s right. 80% of your body is water. And as a kitty it’s not really in your nature to drink a lot of water. In the wild you would get a lot of water from the prey animals that you would eat.
Me knows dat’s what they say mommy, but me be weally glad me dusn’t have to hunt fur meez dinner and eat little mouseys.
Well sweety I’m glad you don’t have to hunt and eat little mice either. But that means you need to drink more water, and that’s not something a kitty readily does.
We do tho’, don’t we mommy? Lexi and me? We luv to dwink fwum our fountains.
Yes Dezi, you and your sister do like to drink from your fountains. But I remember a time beore we had a fountain, and you didn’t drink nearly enough water. You’re suppose to drink at least an ounce of water for every pound of body weight. And if you don’t, you’re in danger of becoming dehydrated. And that’s not good. Water is essential for your well being. It helps support your vital organ functions.
And it’s wespawnsible fur fings like digestion and waste wemoval too, wight?
That’s right honey. Do you know what causes dehydration Dezi?
Me duz mommy.. It happens when we don’t dwink enuff. Or when our fluid level dwops cuz of heat or dwy kibble. We animals sweat diffewently than hoomans do. Dogs pant and we kitties sweat fwu our paw pads. Duin’ this can deplete us of dat much needed hydwation purretty fast. So we need to weplenish. And one of da ways we can get da water our bodies need is to dwink more water. But a bowl of stagnant water isn’t weally appealin’, and altho’ sum doggis dwink outta da hooman pawdee box, dat’s not weally safe. Us anipals seem to kmow dat runnin’ water be furesh water and dat’s why Lexi and me like dwinkin’ fwum a fountain. so much.
And OMC Were we ever blest to have wecieved a pawsum Drinkwell Pagoda fountain fwum PetSafe. You can check out their udder pawsum purroducts by clickin’ on their name. And you can check ‘em out on twitter and facebook also. Our new fountain has 2 water falls to dwink fwum and two bowls too, an upper and larger bottom bowl. And it looks purretty. It comes in 4 diffewent colors to match or blend in wiff any décor. And it holds 70 ounces of furesh water dat it wecirculates over and over again. And it has not 1 but 2 filters to make da water even cleaner. It’s made of ceramic so it dusn’t cause dat feline acne. And they say it makes it easier to clean. Is it easier to clean mommy?
Oh yes Dezi, it sure is. I love how easy it is to clean. And that all the parts are in one place. And that there aren’t a billion little places to get all gunky and slimy. Yes Dezi, I like your new fountain as much as you and Lexi do. And the replacement filters are easy to find and not too expensive.
Dat’s pawsum mommy. How offen do yous have to clean it?
Well sweety it should be cleaned and filled with fresh water weekly, or as needed, but the filters only need to be changed once every 4 – 6 weeks.
So then it’s easy to maintain. You know what wulda been gweat mommy?
What’s that sweety?
Ifin Pet Safe Wulda let us give one of these pawsum fountains away to one of our amazin’ furiends.
