Nutrition and Feeding
If your cat has a
well balanced diet it will have good health. It will be happy, content,
with bright eyes, a glossy coat and a moist nose.
You should try to set certain
times for when your cat eats, this would normally be twice a day at a time
of your choice. This is not only better for your cat, but it also means your
cat can be occupied while your family eats, this will help prevent begging
at the dinner table.
Your cat will need a good diet,
if you plan on preparing the food yourself, remember that although your cat
does need plenty of protein in the form of meat, it also requires other
vitamins and minerals only found in plants. So be aware of the nutritional
requirements your cat needs when you plan its meals.
You need to be aware of
occasions when you'll need to change your diet, times like this include,
when your cat is pregnant, when it becomes elderly, or if it develops health
problems such as diabetes. If or when this happens to your cat, you'll need
to be prepare for the changes you'll have to make.
