Why Do Cats Tip Over Their Water Bowls?

While you are on your search for cat water bowls that won’t tip over, you may be wondering why do cats tip over their water bowls in the first place. This can be as simple as they think it’s a toy. Or, they might even have whisker sensitivity, or whisker fatigue, when they drink from the bowl.

 

 

Whisker Fatigue

Your pet probably will be tipping their water bowls over to get a drink without upsetting their delicate whiskers. You may opt for one of the options above because they are shallow bowls with a wide opening.

Water Needs To Be Changed

The amount of water your cat drinks does not matter, the water should still be switched out.
