If a cat is eating raw food and supposedly getting most of the water needs from that, is the cat supposed to drink from a water bowl? thinking

Human's Leroy drinks from the water bowl a lot shrug He eats 3 Nature's Variety medallions a day. Should Human be adding water to the smushed up medallions? thinking

Does the Nature's Variety contain any salt? Could Leroy have any health issues? Drinking a little water is normal (although In my experience so is not drinking any while on a raw diet) but in theory, all the moisture in the raw food should be enough.

The duck one has salt but Leroy doesn't get that very often shrug Emma eats the same food and sometimes she drinks from the water bowl but it's not very often.

Leroy saw the vet a few weeks ago and got a clean bill of health smile He's been thoroughly examined (inside and outshock ) several times in the past for possible health issues that turned out to be non-issues.
