When it comes to feeding your cat, you need to make sure that they have access to the full range of nutrients that they would have had in the wild. This is usually achieved by giving them a mixture of dry cat food and wet cat food.
You might also consider giving your cat the odd bit of raw meat, like chicken hearts or liver, to help supplement their diet. We do advise freezing the raw food for at least three to four weeks to ensure that any parasites or bacteria in the meat are killed off completely.
Then, thaw it thoroughly and serve it up to your cat.
Raw feeding is not for everyone, though, and might be pricey if you’re on a budget. If you buy cat food online, you can often find more affordable cat food options. You’ll see many options in our online store for cat food — options guaranteed to please even the fussiest of felines.
When it comes to how much to feed your cat, you should be guided by the size of your cat and how active they are. Don’t rely on your cat to know what’s best for it. Many will simply eat the food because it is there.
When working out how many calories a day to feed your cat, you should also factor in any treats that you might give them. The occasional treat with their normal food is not going to make much of a difference.
It does pay to remember that most treats are more calorie dense than their food counterparts, so if the treats are a regular thing, you’ll need to incorporate them into the meal plan.
