Yo human, once you have this adorable fuzzball at home, we sure hope you know that you aren’t just a cuddle-and-shelter-provider. You’re now in charge of one of our most basic needs too of course; you, human, are in charge of providing us tasty noms!
- Sure, there are some of us who are hooked to the same brand of kitty food, in the same flavor, since the day you brought the tiny thing home. For the rest of you without the privilege of these cats however..
- Will find out that most cats appreciate variety. Week two of Succulent Salmon in our bowl? We’d ignore it. We thrive on variety. And we, of course, expect you – our human staff – to deliver.
- There are three basic types of foods you can acquire: canned, dried and semi-moist. All these are made to contain the right amounts of proteins, minerals, vitamins and fats; but too much of one kind has its disadvantages.
- Canned foods have a high moisture content, but this means some vitamins can be lost if we don’t consume the watery bit. Dry food or kitty kibble don’t go bad as quickly in warm weather, but some of us don’t fancy it.
- Got a little kitten at home? Little ones have little stomachs that can only take relatively little food at one go. At 6 – 12 weeks we only need 2 or 3 teaspoonfuls of food, 4 or 5 times a day!
- Over time, slowly increase the amount of
offeringsnoms and decrease the number of feeds to 2 or 3 a day when we’re between 3 and 6 months old. Also, those of us who go out for a prance will need more noms than those of us who lounge around your house!
- See us nibbling on grass? That’s cool. No really, it is. We know what we’re doing – it helps us to hack up all those fur balls!
