Saturated Sausicles

Some of you might remember that last year I had a nasty case of idiopathic cystitis. It was not a fun time. One of the changes mum made was to try and get more water into me. I have lots more wet food in my diet now, which I love, even after Fui has been through and licked all the gravy off.
I am also still enamoured with the fountain mum got just after I was sick. I really enjoy drinking out of the falling water. It's been over a year now, and I haven't shown any symptoms of the cystitis coming back.
Being hydrated is good, kitties!

The water fountain is a wonderful invention for kitties! Because of our hard water, Banjo has gone through 5 of them in two years ~ some really fancies to some pretty basics. But he's worth it!

So glad no cystitis back for you sweet kitty!

I'm glad you haven't been sick again Suey.

Hooray for a well-hydrated Suey!

We're glad you're doing so well and staying hydrated!

Our mom tried two different fountains, but we wouldn't touch them. We boys prefer to drink the stagnant water from the dehumidifier, that mom keeps in a pail (and changes regularly, of course). We don't think Annie drinks water at all--no one has ever seen her! But she does eat almost entirely canned, is not fond of kibble.

Mom want us to eat more wet food but we like stuff like Fancy Feast and not the stuff mom wants us to eat like Instinct or other grainfree foods. What do you eat?

Hey cool! Our mom also got us a water fountain and we drink a lot more water now. It is great! Here's to H2O kitty health :)

We love our fountain, too. Kirby likes to paw at the water before drinking!

We had one but it broke. I need to get another one don't I ...

I have exaclty the same water fountain at home! Casper absolutely loves it and even plays in it. The other two boys are less thrilled with it.

Sparkle said...

We have the same fountain and we all enjoy drinking from it! I'm glad the change in food and drinking fountain has helped you stay well, Suey!

Mommy cracked up at you post title! We guess we know one of your nicknames, Suey.
We have a fountain like that and we love it, and a still water dish if we need some variety.

Mom tried one of those for us, but Maestro kept trying to drag it across the kitchen and mom said something about being tired of finding lake michigan in the kitchen every morning. So she bought a couple of big bowls and that is what we use.

So glad your UT is being kept healthy by the fountain, Suey. Everyone likes the one at the Casa, too!!

That fountain looks like fun! We keep asking our mom for one, but she hasn't gotten us one...yet.

Keiko said...

Hi Suey! That is great advice. We didn't know you had been sick, but glad it hasn't come back!
That fountain looks so awesome. I think we need a couple of those here.

Great advice Suey. It's no fu being poorly so if drinking more helps, then that's the way to go!
