We all know how long us humans can survive without food and water, but we usually don’t know this about our feline friends. 

So, in today’s blog I’d like to talk about how long cats can survive without water. 

Let’s get started!

Do you know why we look for water when determining whether or not a planet is habitable? 

This is because water is essential for any sort of life form to exist! 

And, so, mammals can survive for longer without food, but not without water! This means that kitty can only survive seven days without water. 

Leaving your cat unattended (and without water!) when you’re going on a short trip is not a good idea. 

There’s another thing: Leaving your cat unattended without water can also cause dehydration, which can cause long term health problems in your kitty’s body. 

So, fill up your cat’s water bowl and make sure your ‘lil kitty has a lot of water to drink whenever you go out!

  1. Brooklyn what is your reason for leaving? That is neglecting it no matter why you had to leave! You should have asked a neighbor or literally anyone to check on it! Or left it at a shelter since you are clearly not responsible enough for it. Sorry to be harsh but this is literally life or death. All of these comments talking about how long they’ve left their cats alone starving and thirsty are awful!

  2. I’m disgusted by the comments above.. how can you leave your cats for so long without food or water? One person said they left their car for 3 weeks? It’s almost certainly dead unless someone was able to help it without you knowing! How can you leave your pets for that long If anyone is in New York, I am willing to help, not for you but for your cat. Please respond to my comment if you need help. But will need some way to access the area/home the cat is in
