Choosing a Cat Food

Many food choices are available, and it can be confusing. Here are a few simple ideas on what to look for, when it comes to your cats’ food:

  • Choose a food that is designed to suit their age, size and breed. Kittens have different nutritional needs to adults, whilst specific breeds also have special requirements. Older or larger cats will need foods that will support their joints, whilst smaller and younger cats need more calories to keep up with their faster metabolism.
  • Choose a food that suits the breed. Different breeds can have different nutritional needs and may also need specific kibble sizes/shapes to compensate for genetic features. For example, the short nose of a Persian may need kibble designed to be easy to pick up and chew, whilst the sensitive skin of a Russian Blue will need higher levels of Omega 3.
  • Choose a food that suits their health. From renal health to hairballs, there are many foods that have been formulated to support the different issues that cats face.
  • Choose a food that suits their temperament – cats with a diminishing appetite may find wet food more palatable, whilst cats prone to gulping their food will benefit from a large sized kibble.
  • Choose a food that suits your lifestyle – if you are a busy person, dry food stores well and is easy to feed. If you prefer a more holistic approach, a raw diet may be your preference.

Try a variety of foods and choose one that best suits your cat’s health and well being.
