Have you ever seen your dog or cat drink from a muddy puddle and wondered why they do it, when you provide them with perfectly clean water? I observed this to a friend once, and she pointed out that they are probably ‘programmed’ to drink water when they find it, as a wild animal wouldn’t be able to rely on a helpful human to fill a water bowl. So rain provides drinking water for animals in the wild.
