Cats require a high protein / high fat diet which can be difficult to prepare yourself. Cats often become fussy eaters which leads to diet deficiency diseases.
The rules are:
- Choose a complete diet with variety;
- Feed little and often;
- Don’t leave excess food in bowl;
- See that feed bowls are scrupulously clean;
- Do not feed liver as a major dietary component as it may causes skeletal problems;
- Do not feed raw meat as the sole diet as this can also cause skeletal problems;
- Do not feed dog food to a cat.
Most canned cat food is specially prepared with added vitamins and minerals. Feeding dried foods requires access to drinking water at all times without which the cat may develop a urinary tract problem.
Cats should have ready access to a plentiful supply of clean fresh water. Milk should be avoided as milk lactose is indigestible to most cats and may lead to diarrhoea.
Cats use their claws for climbing and for defence and usually keep them in immaculate condition. Cats may often sharpen their claws on a tree in the garden but some select furniture in the house and the resultant damage can be severe. It is best to provide a scratching post or cat tree for your cat and you should place this near its usual exit from the house. The most interesting scratching posts are those which have different kinds of surfaces. Make sure the post or tree is tall enough to that your cat can reach upwards with its front paws – above its head – and still have room to stretch and grab. If the tree is too short it may decide to use taller furniture.
