The cats crystal bowls here ans washed twice a day and refilled with room
temperatire water from a Brita. Short of giving them Schwepps soda
water and Roses lime cordial they drink better than most humans.

They'll drink from a bucket of yellow aquarium water with a brown
sediment although they seem to prefer green water.
A part of the river in our backyard is so fast moving that
it never freezes. They'll drink from that too.
I just figure they like the different flavours.
