    My Raphael is 19weeks old. I have had her for 5 weeks. She doesn't seem interested in drinking water from a bowl. I have tried stainless steel, glass, both warm and cold water. She will lick the water off my legs when I get out of the shower, she will drink water from my glass if I tilt it for her and she will lick condensation off of my water bottle. Does anyone have any suggestions. Thank you.

      Cats don't like to drink water, next to their food.
      Out in the wild they do this, and drink up stream from their prey.
      Because of containment.
      I put one water bowls in my living room, one in my bedroom.
      She drinks, like, she's, never had water. Plus she drinks in the bathroom sinks.

        This is very interesting. This is the first time I have heard that they don't like their water by their food. I will move the bowl and see what happens. Thank you.

          @Hairless Blessing did give great advice. Cats indeed don't like there water next to there food. Try to set up the waterbowl on a different place. Hope that works!
