How to Feed Your Cat? 💡 Cat Lessons


How to Feed Your Cat?
Cats are very opinionated about food, and a lot of their food preferences are formed in the first year.
If your cat is a kitten, now is the time to get her used to different types of food: wet, dry, and semidry.
Choose Balanced Food:
People tend to focus on ingredients, but the nutrients are more important, namely protein and fat.
It’s trendy to bash grains and carbohydrates in pet food
Carbs can be valuable to hold dry food together and make food more affordable, and many cats like that crunch.
Most cats will eat their main meals at dawn and dusk, when they would normally be hunting and catching prey in the wild,
so those are often the best times to feed them.
How much your kitty should get in her bowl depends on her age, her size, and how active she is,
but the average is about 200 calories per day.
Cats will also nibble during the day if you leave food sitting out, and they don’t necessary know when to stop.
Overfeeding is an epidemic:
When cats gain too much weight, they can have problems like joint disease, heart disease, and diabetes
Unlike dogs and humans, cats need specific vitamins, minerals, and proteins that only come from meat.
But not raw meat. That may be part of life for big cats in the wild, but it’s unnatural for house cats.
In the wild, they eat the whole animal or bird they catch, not just the meat.
Meat alone will be deficient in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

  1. Meow Monday is delayed this week, sorry! I had technical issues! But I left you an other video to watch for yesterday! Did you see the new kitten? http://bit.ly/2teYiky
    Anyway, There will be a new cat lesson video on every Monday, so don't forget to SUBSCRIBE! Also comment with topics you'd like to hear about!

  2. My cat always does one day with one bowl of food 😋.
    Very nice video. Always learn something new from you ❤❤

  3. Informative as always! This video reminded me of my cat I had years and years ago. I only had him for like 1-2 months and then my grandparents adopted him because he didn't get along with my German Shepherd Alex. Anyway my cat was so picky, it was so difficult to find him something he really liked, but eventually we found his favorite! 😄

  4. How about a cat lesson video about the toilet? Now that food is covered, people might be interested about the toilet matters, what litter to choose, where to place the kitty potty and so on.

  5. It's important not to free-feed a cat and fill their bowl to the top. Gracie & Leo are very opinionated about their food, sometimes difficult to find a kind that they both approve of.

  6. Interesting video. Our experience is that the cats like to get their foot at night and in the morning. What kind of food do you give Destin? Fivel and Soteline get Orjen dry food and Applaws wet food. They love it ❤

  7. I enjoyed your video and subscribed to your channel. My cat eats only grain-free food that is also free of meat by-product and meal. She is mostly on a wet food diet, but does get to nibble on a little bit of dry food (less than an 1/8 cup of dry food a day). She is currently eating Earthborn Holistic wet food and Halo dry food. Also, her food is elevated to about mid chest height to aid in her digestion. Experts say that it is not good for them to have to stoop over their food. It took her awhile to adjust when I started having her food bowls elevated instead of on the ground, but she did eventually.
