kitty has a normal sized dog bowl for her water and once a week she empties it. I refresh it every day as it is only hers. Still that a fair amt of water for her to drink.
Chance sometimes needs water twice a day but that's cause he takes a bath in it and drop food in it.
Outside the birds drink from the bird bath... which I refill every morning. Rarely do they drink during the afternoon... but at night they drink about a third if not more of the water.
I also am inhaling water. 8-)
Charlie & I do 2 or 3 laps in morning - when he does his business. About noon it starts to reach mid to upper 90's so I do one lap so he can pee after all the water. In the afternoon we do 1 lap for same reason.... at night I toss him his ball so all he does is jump up a bit and if he bounces it off his nose and gives chase..well I slow him down. Plus I make sure that is when the sun is behind the trees and a good amount of heat is gone.
But if I do a third lap Charlie lies down in the shade of one of the oaks and watches me walk.
But does he want to come in... sometimes but most often he wants to sit in the shade of a tree and doze. LOL
The cats sleep most of the day. 8-)
