Feeding Your Cat: Dos and Don’ts
Food for cats is of course one of the most important needs of cats and it has to be provided by the owner. I think everyone agrees that this is the number one need of animals like cats and the kind of food you feed them would also reflect the nutritional contents of the food intake.
We have to feed our pets with the most nutritious food so that they would be able to grow well and be free from possible sickness. There are guidelines to remember like giving a balanced diet to your cat and as much as possible do not run out of drinking water. What then are those other reminders? Those tips would let us overcome the wrong feeding of cats?
Avoid giving to cats meals that include By-products," "meat and/or bone meal," "animal digest," most other descriptions including "digest" or "meal," and added sugars. These won’t be good for them and would be of no use for them too.
Do not give food that includes corn meal as filler.
Avoid giving meals that conation like almost 50 percent of carbohydrates fillers.
Food with too much preservative is highly-discouraged.
These tips must be noted for if one does not know what to buy for his cat, he would surely end up giving the wrong food.
What then could be good for cats?
Always bear in mind the basic nutritional needs of your cats. This includes Protein from a meat, fish, or poultry source, Taurine, an essential amino acid, certain other vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and fatty acids, and of course Water.
Do cats need carbohydrates?
Well, they do not need such as much as we do. We could not get away from those carbohydrates fillers especially in canned cat food but it has to be ensured that it does not reach or exceed 50 percent of fillers. One big tip is to feed your cat varied food from time to time; cats could get easily bored if you feed them with the same food all the time. It would plunge down appetite and of course, the total nutrition of the animal.
