Changing your cats food

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

The other day, I saw a new kind of cat food made by the same company that makes Fancy Feast, my cats favorite food. I opened the can of Fancy feast morning blend and thought that my cat Mollie would love it! She loves all Fancy Feast food. She sniffed it, turned up her nose and walked away. I threw the new food out and gave her a can of her regular Fancy Feast. She was happy again and chowed it down. Cats have sensitive digestive systems.If you have to change your cats food, here are some simple guidelines.

Remember that the minimum transition time for changing food is seven days.

    • Day One: Mix 90% old food Rand 10% new food in their bowl.

 

    • Day Two: Mix 80% old food and 20% new food.

 

    • Day Three: Mix 75% old food and 25% new food.

 

    • Day Four: Mix 50% old food and 50% new food.

 

    • Day Five: Mix 25% old food and 75% new food.

 

    • Day Six: Mix 20% old food and 80% new food.

 

    • Day Seven: Mix 10% old food and 90% new food.

 

After Day Seven it should be safe to give your cat 100% new food.

Remember, your pets count!
