Feeding the Finicky Feline

 

 

 When denied the chance to take down their own prey – cats become finicky eaters.

They are superior predators and indoor only cats can be the hardest to feed.

Kibble is a completely unnatural food.

No Mammal eats dry food only.

When a cat eats prey – it consumes a lot of fluid and juicy bits plus the odd bone.

Kibble only satisfies the crunchy need and not the moistness needed for proper digestion.

It’s best as a snack food but if your cat won’t eat anything else introduce fluid to dry kibble a little at a time until your kitty is used to it.

Cats are obligate carnivores.

They need protein daily.

Meat & Fish are the best foods for cats as they contain Taurine which is essential for healthy eyes and heart.

Most cats love Tuna, but it is a very polluted fat fish.

Salmon, Sardines, Mackerel, White Fish are all tolerated by cats but have issues that should concern pet owners, like tape worm & high mercury/heavy metal content.

If you feed your cats fish, stay away from farmed fish esp. Tilapia.

Drain canned product and rinse to remove salt & other additives.

Mix in 1/4 tsp of powdered Sunflower Lecithin to 1/4 to 1/2 cup of fish.

Lecithin carries heavy metals from the body.

Organic Apple Pectin can be used for this purpose.

1/8 tsp per serving.

Mix with a little water or Red Clover Tea to make a broth.

Other powdered supplements can be added without detection.

Chlorophyll (1 to 2 drops) and Spirulina (1/8 tsp) for cats who have no access to forage greens.

Most cats also like chicken, turkey (ground or finely shredded).

There are frozen raw sources of rabbit & duck that can be used raw or gently boiled in water.

My Boy, Indigo, likes his wet food soupy with a little kibble on the side.

He was an abandoned kitty who spent several years living off the land.

He hunted crickets & rodents and survived that way.

It took me a while to make him happy once he had to come indoors.

But I stook at it.

With a little patience, you can make your cat Real Food they will look forward to eating.

Thanks!
