    You cant say 'X amount' because all cats are different, just leave water out at all times like normal :)

    I have a cat who drinks nothing, infact I now have 2 cats who drink nothing and 2 who drink alot!

    Yup. Most wet cat food is around 80% water, so some cats get all their intake from that. My two have the occasional sip, but that's it. If they are thirsty, then they'll drink.

    my cat is on a mostly dry diet so will drink quite a bit. I had to fill her bowl up a number of times over the weekend and I check it everytime I pass by.

    I would just say your cat will drink as much as he/she wants. Aslong as your kitty knows where the water bowl is :)
