    Cats dont need lots of fluids to survive. They dont sweat or pant. Unless she's in obvious distress, she's getting enough fluids. You dont have to directly witness it.

    Maybe she’s drinking from somewhere else, like the toilet. I’ve seen my cat drink from the toilet. 

    She could get water from her food if you’re feeding her wet food. 

    She’s tiny so probably don’t need that much water.
