Increased Thirst in Domestic Cat

Increased thirst in the domestic cat is called polydypsia. It is a sign of kidney failure and is accompanied by increased urination (polyuria). Two other possible cause are feline diabetes and feline hyperthyroidism.

Both these conditions are common in older cats. It is said that most older cats suffer from some degree of kidney failure.
