If you leave your dog outside, you should leave him some water. Should you leave water out for your outdoor cat too?
It doesn’t hurt to leave a little water outside for your cat. Place the bowl in a shallow dish that’s a bit larger than the bowl itself and fill it with water. That way, if any ants come along, the shallow dish catches them before they end up in the water. You can also buy specialty bowls at the pet store that prevent bugs.
If you’re at home, you may not have to leave water outside for your cat. When he’s thirsty, he’ll just come back home and let you know that he wants to be let back inside! To make it even easier, you can install a pet door.
