Dry cat food does not mean dried vegetables and grains.
Most cat owners usually choose cuts in gravy or dry food. That is by far the most common solution to a cat’s diet. However, although dry cat food may seem to contain almost anything, for cats, it is best when even dry food includes a high percentage of quality protein, i.e. meat. Meat should always come first in the composition, which means that it is the most plentiful ingredient compared to other ingredients. If the dry food also contains fresh meat, the better. Fresh meat improves the smell and taste of food and cats accept such food more willingly. In addition, fresh meat in the feed improves its digestibility, providing the cat with more important nutrients and a better feeling in the cat’s tummy. It is the pleasant feeling in the cat's tummy that is decisive for whether and for how long the cat will be willing to eat the food.
Canned wet food – A popular source of meat in the cat’s diet
Canned wet food can be an excellent source of meat as well. Canned foods prepared from muscle and viscera in the right proportions are an essential source of key amino acids, which are necessary for the proper construction of the tissues in the cat body. Did you know that wet food heated to the temperature of the cat’s prey is highly attractive for the cat? Canned fish, on the other hand, are an excellent natural source of omega 3 fatty acids, which have a beneficial effect on the cat’s entire body, including skin, fur, heart, urinary tract and teeth.
Keep in mind that canned cat food should not contain cereals!
Pouches for regular rituals
Pouches are a topic of their own. Cats love rituals, i.e. activities that are repeated regularly at the same time every day. And opening of a pouch is such an important ritual. Cats absolutely love the sound of a pouch opening, followed by delicious and juicy cuts of meat. Especially in the morning. Imagine the amount of work a cat has to do with us humans in the morning. The cat has to make sure her human does everything right in the morning and leaves her home in time. For this, she definitely deserves a reward. Such rituals are important for their mental health and happiness. Every day, the cat has to make sure everything is in order and that the world continues to run as it should.
A friendly gesture in the form of a treat
But don’t be fooled. Cats, despite their independence, are highly social creatures. They have developed special rituals with other cats in their territory. And, in order to accept a human as a “friendly cat”, the human should use positive, soothing tools.
Therefore, the human should approach the cat with a treat in his hand, so that the cat knows that he is not a dangerous predator but a loving biped. And you guessed it, even the treat should contain a high proportion of meat.
Cat salami and meat cream pastes complement the modern diet of each cat
Stroking, petting, cuddling. The immediate physical contact of a person with a cat is pleasant on both sides. To enhance these pleasant feelings, salami or cream pastes made of very fine meat paté are ideal. When the cat licks them directly from the wrapper or tube, one feels… blissful that the cat has accepted them into her world.
Everyone who has a cat has already found out or will soon find out - cats are picky
Although cats are often picky in their diet, one thing is certain - they love meat and meat products above all else in the world. Therefore, stick to this basic instruction - a cat’s bowl should mainly contain meat, lean meat and fish meat, meat granules, cans, pouches or salami, meat treats and pastes. Thanks to a quality meat diet, each cat will have a happy tummy, it will thrive beautifully, grow and have a beautiful coat. And what’s more, you will become her favourite roommate, the biped who has the best delicacies hidden somewhere.
