Pet cat care should be your responsibility if you
have your pet cat at home. Giving proper food for your cat depends on a variety of factors. Knowing if you
have a healthy cat would require that you know how to observe how your cat looks. You should be able to judge
if your cat is too thin or too fat. The best thing to do it is to observe your pet cat and see how it
examining your cat, you may be able to see the telltale signs if it is either too thin or too heavy. Your pet
cat may be too thin if the ribs are obviously visible on your short haired cat. The ribs may show or you may
be able to feel it on a thick haired cat with seemingly no palpable fat anywhere. You may also observe some
slight abdominal tuck as well as no visible fat on your pet.
that is too heavy may have their ribs not easily obvious that may be covered by excess fat. If you observe
your cat, you may notice that it might not have a visible waist that has become rounded with excess fat. Your
cat would seem rounded with the prominent abdominal fat as well as with fat deposits over the back area. This
would be one of the signs that your cat may be overweight.
the solutions to problems concerning your pet cat's weight would be the proper feeding regimen that you cat
goes through. It is important that, as a pet owner, you will know the right proportion of food to give to
your pet cat. At different points of their life, your pet cat would require different nutritional needs and

Feeding your pet will depend a great deal on his age. Older cats require two small meals or one large meal
for the day. Kittens on the other hand, require several feedings a day until they get around the age of 12

can be fed to cats, although any food that has been left out longer than 30 minutes need to be disposed of.

generic food may be cheaper, it may not offer the nutrients your pet needs.
you have a pet kitten, you should know that they require twice as much energy per pound of their body weight
as compared to a mature cat. Kittens need to be weaned for about the first six to eight weeks of their life
and then they can be given a regular diet composed of a well balanced food that will ensure proper growth.
Kittens should be fed three top four times a day with a source of clean water always made available for them
at all times. This regimen is to help provide the cat's nutritional needs during its rapid growth.
own a kitten, you should only give you kitten food designed for him. You’ll also need to clean and
refill his water dish every day. Even though kittens and adult cats like cow’s milk, you should avoid
giving it to them as it can cause diarrhoea. Treats are fine on occasion, although too many of them can
cause your pet to get fat. Feeding your kitten human food is good on occasion, although you may have to
mix it in with his cat food.
