8 Useful tips for feeding your cat

Overview
  • Pet Food is essential for the good health and
    long life of pets. Cat owners should be familiar
    with the nutritional requirements of their cats.
    Cats and dogs have different nutritional
    requirements. Cat gets nutrition from vegetable
    and meat sources. Cats need more protein and have
    greater tolerance for fat. Cat foods can be found
    in different flavors and textures. Select the
    best food for the cat and stick to that food.
    When you find the food your cat likes, and if it
    meets the nutritional requirements, stick to it
    and don't change it often because frequent
    changes may make the cat fastidious and may cause
    digestive problems.

What do cat needs?
  • Cat owners should choose the food that contains
    all the essential nutrients that the cat needs to
    meet up his body requirement. Select the food
    that promote the good health of the cat. Cat
    foods are made for kittens, adult cats and the
    pregnant cats. There are different foods for
    every breed and every age of the cat but be
    careful that all food should contain essential
    nutrients (water, proteins, fatty acids, minerals
    and vitamins).

Type of cat food
  • We can divide cat food into 3 main categories
  • Dry Food Dry food contains approximately 6-10
    moisture and can help to keep the teeth and gums
    clean, and keeps them healthy. Dry foods have a
    long shelf life. Food that contains 34-38
    protein and 19-22 fat provides a healthy
    balance.
  • Soft - Moist Food It contains about 23-40
    moisture. Cat owners prefer it because it is
    convenient and has a long shelf life. Soft-moist
    foods are more expensive than dry foods.
    Soft-moist foods contain a lot of preservatives,
    so you must be careful.
  • Canned Food Canned food contains
    approximately 68-70 moisture and most cats like
    it most of all other foods. However, it is not
    recommended to feed your cat with canned food
    only because it sticks to the cat's teeth and
    this may lead to dental problems.

Tips about feeding your cat
  • Following are the tips about feeding your cat.
  • TIP 1 Cats that live free in the wild eat
    grass every day. Domestic cats will also eat
    grass if they have the opportunity, so cat owners
    should provide sources of green vegetation for
    their cats.
  • TIP 2 Milk is a food, not a drink. The
    only drink that cats use is water. Milk is a good
    source of calcium and phosphorus which make bones
    and teeth stronger. It also provides many
    vitamins and minerals. However, you should keep
    in mind that many cats cannot digest milk as they
    grow older.
  • TIP 3 Provide your cat with varied food. You
    can mix some of the new food with the old for 3-5
    days in order to make gradual changes

  • Tip 4 Cats should be fed in quiet parts of
    the house where no one will bother them because
    they feel vulnerable while they eat.
  • Tip 5 If you have more cats, you should
    provide each of them with a separate food bowl
    and you shouldn't keep them close to each other
    while they are eating, because cats compete for
    their food and feel uncomfortable if they are too
    close to one another

  • Tip 6 It is recommended that you don't feed
    your cat from plastic bowl. Provide ceramic or
    stainless steel bowls because plastic dishes may
    give shelter to bacteria. Moreover, some cats may
    develop allergies to plastic and may get pimples
    on their chins.
  • Tip 7 Older cats would like you to raise
    their food and water bowl a few inches off the
    floor because this will make it easier on their
    backs and necks.
  • Tip 8 You should observe your pet closely
    after you give it new food. Any changes in the
    coat, appetite, weight or mood may indicate a
    problem. If you have any questions about the
    dietary plant of you cat, consult your vet for
    advices.
