Safely Changing Your Cats Diet

Friday, January 11, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

Cats usually don’t like change. If you have to change your cat’s diet for any reason such as a medical condition, you may be in for a tricky situation. When you give her the new food, she may look up at you like she’s saying “are you kidding? Do you think I’ll really eat this?” Whatever food you feed your cat, it must be well balanced.  When changing your cat’s diet, you must do it slowly.  A sudden change could upset digestion and it could even make your cat sick.  If this happens, she will never eat the “new” food.  When changing her diet, mix a small amount of the new food in with the old food.  Feed the mixture for about two or three days.  After this period, start increasing the new food and decreasing the old food.  Do this for about 3 weeks until she’s eating all of the new food normally. Now, if she decides not to eat the new food, go back to the mixture again. Cats like their food at room temperature or warmer. Try warming the food a little to stimulate her smell.
