|I just have a few comments: I always take anything said on a forum with a grain of salt, and TWO grains of salt if it was posted anonymously (as was "Do NOT give your cat distilled water to drink. Distilled water contains no minerals and will cause your cat to spill huge amounts of calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals into his urine").
MY VET, whom I trust, has recommended distilled, tap, filtered or bottled water for cats with crystals or UTI's- the important thing is that they're getting enough water.
And I don't understand what they mean about the minerals being "spilled".
Also: "Still water" is NOT FULL OF VITAMINS. "Still water" just means not running or non-carbonated. The only water that has "lots of vitamins" is commercial "vitamin water", which is a vitamin supplement FOR PEOPLE, and probably not safe for cats.
