Feeding a Cat, My Recommendations

I would never recommend giving a cat table food. Once in awhile, a lean piece of turkey or beef would be OK for a treat only. Cats need lots of protein. Make sure that you buy a quality cat food and read the label to ensure that it contains the proper nutrients. I have two cats and feed them once per day. Always make sure there is lots of fresh water on hand. Cats eat very small amounts at a time so I leave the food out all day even though some vets   recommended to take it away. You have to use your own good judgement. In this case, I don’t agree with vets that tell you to remove food during the day because cats unlike like dogs  go back and forth to their dish all day. So I would always recommend leaving your cats food out all day. If you’re feeding both wet and dry food, I recommend leaving the dry food out all day but take the un -eaten wet food away after a few hours  because leaving it out too long can cause it to go bad.

I feed my cat one half can of wet food each and a handful of dry food. I buy several kinds of dry food and mix them for variety. In the evening, I give her some treats1each to enjoy. She  seems to do very well on this diet. The key is try to vary the food a bit. Don’t switch brands. Stick with one good brand but vary the flavors. Include some wet food  and you’ll have a healthy, happy cat!

Remember, pets are family!
