  • I don't see why not. Whatever water is drinkable by you should be fine. Although our cats if given a chance will drink from the toilet.

  • I dont see why not. but like bmat said my cat will drink out of the toliet he also drinks out of everything but his water bowl. i think its because the water in his dish dosnt move all the time like when you flush. because thats when he runs in there to get a drink.

  • Pets can drink filtered water, but they don't NEED to. Animals are fine on tap water.

  • My cats favorite water is right out of the tap and into the tub. My bath tub has turned into a gaint cat water bowl.

  • Our 13 cats, 2 birds and 2 chinchillas only get water from our R/O system, and our cats drink out of a fountain, so the water is constantly filtered all over again. The dogs get tap.

  • my cat will only drink water from water bottles. if it came from the sink he purposely spills it and will keep spilling it until he gets the water he wants. we spend alot of money on him. and also wen it comes to it has to be wet food otherwise he starves himself. id say we have1 very spoiled baby.
