Kitty hydration

Does anyone know how long a big cat can last without fluids? I'm asking about a mountain lion in particular, but I'm sure that any other of the large hunting cats would do. I can find plenty that talks about how cats can go fairly long without drinking because they get a lot of the necessary fluids from the prey they eat, but nothing about how long they can last between any kind of intake at all?
