Depending on your cat’s health status and specific nutritional needs, a diet with grain may be better than one without. Here’s the bottom line: There is no conclusive evidence that whole grains are harmful to the general cat population. Actually, there is no credible evidence showing that grain-free diets are better for cats, nor do any nutritional foundations support this claim. In fact, some cats can develop health concerns when eating certain grain-free diets (especially dry formulations).
When they reach 3-4 months old, these “5-generations from the wild” felines tend to like shredded or chunky consistent food. Switching cat foods can be challenging but it doesn’t have to be. Gradually decrease the amount of the current cat food while increasing the amount of new cat food. Continue to do this over a 7-day period. Transitioning slowly can result in fewer digestive issues and better acceptance of the new cat food.
We traditionally have dry food available at all times. We provide wet food in a small portion twice a day. Figuring out your individual companion’s favorites and dislikes will come naturally as you bond – trust us, they will let you know!
Kittens should switch to an adult cat food at 12 months old to ensure they’re receiving the proper nutrient levels for adult cats. Even the most athletic adult pets will gain weight if fed kitten food. We feed our adult cats the following brands:
- Friskies “Shreds in Gravy”, “Surfin’ & Turfin'” and Tasty Treasures Gravy Prime Filets Variety Packs Canned Cat Food
- Meow Mix Tender Favorites Cat Food Variety Pack
- Meow Mix Tender Centers Salmon & White Meat Chicken Dry Cat Food
- Purina Cat Chow Complete Dry Cat Food
