Kittens and water
In the wild, cats rarely get into contact with water, since their natural environments are forests, savannahs and prairies at a distance from the sea. So they aren't programmed to like it. They wash themselves with their tongue and prefer moist food (like Whiskas® Kitten Pouches) to a drink every time. If a kitten gets wet, even after a light shower, she'll spend hours washing and drying herself, just to keep her coat smooth.
Having said all this, kittens do like water when it means play time. For instance, you'll often see a kitten trying to catch water drops from a leaking tap. Those who live in close proximity to goldfish will often happily demonstrate their swimming skills and some breeds like water so much that they'll jump into their carers’ bath. Turkish Van cats are particularly fond of swimming. And the Bengal cat shares a love of water with her bigger cousin, the tiger.
However your little furry one feels about the wet stuff, please make sure her drinking bowl is always topped up and she has enough to drink all the time. Water is possibly the most important nutrient for kittens and is essential for many processes within her body, helping to avoid potential problems with her kidneys. Although kittens can get some of their water from their diet if fed wet food, it is essential to always make sure you provide drinking water at all times.
