A Quick Guide to Cat Nutrition - The Dos and Don’ts

Cats are considered to be low-maintenance house pets. They are independent animals that don’t require constant grooming, bathing, or walking, which makes them the perfect companions for some. But while your cat can be left alone in most cases, cat parents should still be proactive about their pets’ nutrition.

Feeding your cat with the proper diet supports their overall health and helps them live long and happy lives. Cat owners should take the time to understand what constitutes a well-balanced diet to ensure they can provide their cats with essential nutrients.

Here are a few Dos and Don’ts to consider when it comes to cat nutrition:

DO Feed Your Cats with Cat Food

Cat food is best because it provides them with a balanced and complete diet tailored to their specific nutritional needs. Cat food formulations meet their dietary requirements, which ensures optimal health and proper development. Cat food comes in wet and dry forms and is available in many flavors. Read the labels and do your research to determine the best mix for your cat’s meals.

Feeding cats table food is generally discouraged as it can lead to nutritional imbalances and health problems. Human food often contains ingredients that can be harmful or toxic to cats and can contribute to obesity, as its calorie content and composition may not be appropriate for their dietary needs.

DO Take Note of What They Can and Cannot Eat

Cats have unique dietary requirements, and certain foods safe for humans or other animals can be harmful or even toxic to cats. Researching cat-friendly foods helps ensure that you provide a nutritionally balanced and safe diet for your feline companion. Below is a list of food that is healthy and harmful to cats.

DON’T Overfeed Your Cats

Overfeeding cats can negatively affect their health and well-being. Excessive food intake can lead to obesity, which increases the risk of various health issues like heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. Additionally, extra weight may strain their joints and organs, which can cause pain that hinders cats from moving comfortably. By providing cats with appropriate portion sizes and encouraging physical activity, we can help them maintain a healthy weight, promote their longevity, and prevent obesity-related complications.

DON’T Forget to Provide Fresh, Clean Water

Water plays a vital role in maintaining proper hydration for your cats, which is essential for digestion, temperature regulation, and the absorption of nutrients. As cats generally have a low

thirst drive, they are prone to dehydration which increases their risk of kidney and urinary tract problems, as well as heat stroke. Regularly providing fresh, clean water encourages frequent drinking and keeps them hydrated throughout the day.
