Cat Nutrition: A Healthy Diet for Your Cat

Background information: Good nutrition is very important for the continued health of cats. The cat’s diet is usually 60% to 80% protein, 20% vegetables and 20% grains. Homemade foods that meet these dietary needs may include:

 

-Chicken (with or without bones)

– Vegetables (no potatoes or corn)

-Rice or barley

-Eggs (boiled eggs, fried eggs, and scrambled eggs are good sources of protein)

Yogurt (used to digest carbohydrates and proteins)

Prepare these healthy homemade foods:

Mix one serving of cooked chicken with two servings of vegetables, rice or barley. Add water if necessary to get a thick consistency. Cook until the chicken is spread and the rice or barley softens. For added benefits, add some omega-3 fatty acids, yogurt, garlic, or catnip.

Feed the cat twice a day. If your cat stops eating or loses interest in food, reduce the amount of food you give. You may need to fast for an entire day. However, if they eat again the next day, they can be fed regularly again.

These are just some of the possible healthy and nutritious homemade foods you can prepare for your cat. If you are concerned about your cat’s health or diet, consult your veterinarian before changing your diet.

 

Ingredients: The first main ingredient is one serving of cooked chicken and two servings of vegetables, rice or barley. You can add many other ingredients such as water, yogurt, garlic and catnip. These ingredients are all necessary to make a nutritious meal for your pet. Once these ingredients are mixed together, they should be eaten as a soup so that the nutrients in the vegetables and grains are mixed together. Finally, if your cat stops eating, feed him twice a day and then stop feeding before the next feeding time. At this point, you can resume his usual habit of two meals a day.

 

Directions for use: First boil one portion of chicken and two portions of vegetables (not potatoes or corn), rice or barley in water until it becomes soup. Then add any other ingredients you like, such as yogurt for digestive purposes or other ingredients that can improve your cat’s diet (such as omega-3 fatty acids). Feed your pets twice a day, if they lose interest, reduce the food.

 

Note: If you are concerned about your cat’s health, it is best to consult a veterinarian before changing your diet. These homemade foods can be very nutritious, but there is no “one size fits all” solution, so the ingredients or amount may need to be adjusted to individual needs. Finally, these foods should not replace the regular commercial foods that your pet usually eats – they are simply an alternative if you want to indulge your pet with homemade things.

 

Article Summary: Good nutrition is very important for the continued health of cats. The cat’s diet is usually 60% to 80% protein, 20% vegetables, and 20% grains. Homemade food can be healthy, but the ingredients or amount may need to be adjusted to individual needs. If cats stop eating, they may need to go without eating for a whole day and then resume their usual daily habits of two meals after the next meal, then return to regular eating.
