You ask if is risky to put ice cubes in a cat's water bowl. Cats will not choke on ice cubes because they don't gulp. And some cats love cold water. My water glass is not safe from my cats if I am drinking ice water.
Similarly, it is asked, is it okay for a cat to drink cold water?
It adds moisture and it's like a little treat for the cat. The cube takes on the food's flavor, and while your cat's licking the cube, he's getting more water, too. Ice cubes in your cat's water bowl also might make the water more interesting. Some cats prefer icy cold water, just like some humans do.
Is tap water safe for cats?
Since then I have seen many significant health improvements when cats stop drinking tap water. If you must use tap water, it must be filtered before your cat can safely drink it. Even a simple Brita filter will remove chlorine, lead, arsenic, bacteria, and some chemicals.
Do Cats prefer moving water?
Most cats prefer running water to water that is standing still, such as that found in their water bowl. Perhaps your cat isn't yet drinking from the faucet, but is using her paw to splash water out of her water bowl. She may do this because she wants to get the water moving or maybe she's checking the temperature.
