What foods can cats eat other than cat food
Although cats are carnivores, they are omnivores. They can eat greenery and most meats, including raw meats, but they need to be served with a good quality cat food to ensure they get all the nutritional benefits they need.
It is important to note that there are foods cats should not eat.
Cats are not safe to eat, and should not be fed the following foods:
Raw eggs or poultry
Raw dairy products
Raw fruit and vegetables
Raw or undercooked meat and poultry
Sometimes raw, or uncooked chicken or beef bones can be found in cat food. Keep in mind that although these bones are considered safe for cats, they are not easy for them to digest.
If you are feeding your cat raw chicken or beef bones, you will want to remove them from the food before serving.
Cat food is made to provide cats with the nutrients they require. They must be fed a good quality, dry cat food that is made up of meat and fat, protein, carbohydrates and vitamins and minerals.
How do I know if my cat is getting enough nutrition?
When purchasing cat food, look for the nutritional content. This will allow you to be sure your cat is getting all the nutrients they need.
Some cat parents like to test their cat’s food to see if it is pure and free of toxins.
To test your cat’s food, you will have to create a diet for them. You can either use the ingredients that are already in their food or you can buy new ingredients and feed it to your cat.
Set a schedule for repeating the test. It would be a good idea to do this test at least once a month.
Another way to test your cat’s food is to make a small batch of the food. Make the food into a patties, mix it up and serve it to your cat.
Handling an unwell cat
A sick cat is a concerned cat. When your cat is ill, you will want to take their needs into consideration.
If your cat is unwell, you will want to get them to a vet as soon as possible.
If you can get to the vet before they refuse to eat, they can administer medication to them.
If your cat is unwell and they are refusing to eat, you can give them a small amount of water. If you are worried that you might lose your cat, you can also administer 2 percent hydrogen peroxide to your cat.
This is especially important after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing; going to the bathroom; and before eating or preparing food. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, covering all surfaces of your hands and rubbing them together until they feel dry. Read more
Onions, leeks, and chives are part of a family of plants called Allium that is poisonous to most pets, especially cats. Eating onions can cause your dog’s red blood cells to rupture, and can also cause vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, and nausea. Poisoning from onions is more serious in Japanese breeds of dogs like Akitas and Shiba Inus, but all dogs are very susceptible to it. Read more
You can feed your cat wet food as often as you like, whenever you like. There is no set rule when to feed a cat, although most feed their cat twice a day. I personally feed my cat wet (pouched) food in the morning and in the evening. Read more
