Always bear in mind that, like a big cat, your little kitten will keep any ailment well hidden, until it gets just too serious.
So do not hesitate to consult at the slightest change in behaviour or habits.
Drinking a lot
Of course it always has fresh water available in a spotlessly clean bowl (not a plastic one, because of the smell!). It drinks very little: its ancestors used to live in the desert.
Remember: "When a cat takes to drink, there´s something wrong." Your Vet will be able to discover the reason - perhaps a perfectly straightforward one, or sometimes more complicated and serious - and advise you as to diet and possible treatment.
Has it been treated properly against parasites? A flea or two, which you may not be able to see, could be the reason.
There are many others. Each has its own treatment.
