One of my Bengal kitties was gassy as a kitten, but has grown out of that. I feed them Iams regular and The Good Life Recipe (they really like the latter). They are really good about grooming themselves (and each other), but a brushing once in a while won't hurt!

Hi there...we don't know about the gassy thing, we do like a high protein diet, however and fillers could make you gassy...not sure about that but regarding water, well - we drink a TON of it. Mommy has to leave the bathroom faucet lightly running for a few minutes each day in order for us to get our fill. If we don't get it, we jump in the bathtub and scream until someone comes running...ha ha...that's a Bengal for you! Hope this helps
