My cat is making weird clicking/sucking sounds, like it is

Customer Question

My cat is making weird clicking/sucking sounds, like it is very thirsty, yet when she goes to get something to drink it seems as if she can not stick her tongue out to drink or if she has forgotten how to drink she tries to tip the bowls to her or suck at the water or milk.
