Picking the right food for your cat:
Pets are wonderful creatures to share our lives with, and they
need just as much care as humans. All pets need to be fed properly, though we always have the question of what that
might be. There are individuals who give their pet’s human food, while others strictly give pet food.
As everyone knows, cats are very fond of milk. So, if you have a
kitten, give it a saucer of milk twice a day. As the cat grows older, you can increase the volume and intervals of
feeding the milk.
Cats also need meat and they love fish. Before giving any fish
or meat to your cat, it is advisable to cook the same before you give it to your cat.
If you are a vegetarian, there is no need to worry and change
your habits to cook meat or fish for your cat. The cat, as it grows, will learn to catch mice.
You can give your cat bread. But don’t give your cat cooked
rice. Some cats are fond of vegetables, some are not. Don’t force your cat/kitten to eat anything it doesn’t
But always provide your cat with a bowl of clean drinking water
at all times.
Cats are great hunters if you let them explore the outdoor
world. They will often find mice, birds, and other animals to gain protein. Like a dog, your cat needs a consistent
diet. You should find a cat food that has the proper amounts of protein. Cats can also have a very sensitive
digestive system. Finding the right food may be difficult and take a few tries.
If they have a smelly litter box, you will need to change their
food. This is a sure sign they are not receiving a proper diet. When you change their food, you will want to
integrate it slowly over two weeks. Cats also need the vitamins from milk, though our processed milk can be too
rich for them, they do sell milk for cats in the pet stores. Another idea is occasionally giving them a small piece
of cheese to help with their dietary needs, however you should try and find pet food that fits all of their needs.
Grass is also available for indoor cats and may be a needed to get rid of hairballs. Cats eat grass when they have
an upset stomach. The grass will allow the cats to rid themselves of the problem and can help them cough up
Picking the right food for your pet will often mean not feeding
them human food, but checking the ingredients of pet food found in the stores. You want to keep you pet just as
healthy as you would want to keep yourself. Proper nutrition for any animal is important to having your pet around
for many years. Some types of pets are more susceptible to disease, like dogs with heart problems, but they can be
monitored through proper care.
