    Two things: most animals (and especially cats) prefer moving water over still water. In nature, moving water is far less likely to be stagnant and is probably safer to drink, so animals will prefer...

    I'm no expert, but for the scratch I'd put some clear plastic (e.g. Saran Wrap) over it and try different colors of stain pens. Pick one that's the closest but slightly lighter and try dabbing it in...
