Kitty Hyperthyroid Elder Cat Loves Drinking Water at Bathroom Faucet. My elder cat Kitty is now 14 years old, I adopted her from an animal shelter in Virginia when she was likely a year old. She now has hyperthyroidism; one of the symptoms is frequent water consumption. I have an Aqua Falls pet fountain in the kitchen but she prefers drinking from my bathroom faucet. Instead of giving her medication in pill form I use a liquid cream compounded by a veterinary pharmacy and apply it to the inside of her ear.
Love how she shakes her head after she's finished drinking.
