Do cats need water outside in the summer time?

Water, water, water

If you must keep your cat outside, or you manage a feral cat colony, you must keep plenty of fresh clean water out for your pets. Although animals can live quite some time on little to no food, they can't survive more than a few days without water.
To maintain your kitties' health the water should be clean and fresh. Most cats won't drink stagnant water unless they are desparate, since they can suffer from internal parasites as much as humans.
Folks in humid areas may need to change the water every day to prevent mosquitoes from nesting in your pet's water dish.
Those in arid and hot regions may need to add water more than once a day due to evaporation.
