Half of all cats

here is a good article for cat owners.and I quote an important part of it ....

"Feeding cats an exclusively dry food diet is also associated with development of CKD. Cats are designed by nature to get

most or all of their water from their prey, and they don’t have the thirst drive of other species. Kibble provides a very

small percentage of the water a canned or raw diet provides. Cats eating only kibble suffer chronic mild dehydration that

causes significant stress to the kidneys over time Dry diets are also linked to feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD),

because they result in highly concentrated urine".

here's the whole article http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites..._rid=489835615

Dogs are only slightly better at drinking enough water when eating kibble. So it is recommended that you moisten it if you feed kibble.
