Cats are fundamentally different from humans. Aside from them being covered in fur and walking on all fours, they have different diet requirements. There are certain foods that a cat must eat, and some that a cat can’t eat. The following article can give you some dietary tips to aid you in feeding your cat.
Do you love your cat but suffer from allergies? If giving up your feline-friend is not something that you can do, try these things first. Get rid of as much carpeting as possible because your cats dander gets trapped in it. You can also not allow your cat in your bedroom at all. This will make living with your cat easier on your allergies.
Much like people, cats have been known to develop food allergies later in life. Any time you introduce a new type of treat or food into your pet’s diet, watch them closely for signs of an allergic reaction. These include shortness of breath, hives, and erratic behavior. If possible, determine which ingredients are the culprit and ask your vet for recommendations.
Many people don’t realize they are allergic to cats until they get one. Some breeds of cats are less likely to agitate such allergies. Certain cat breeds are more prone to cause an allergic reaction than others. Cats that are lighter in color and female tend to trigger allergies less often. Additionally, certain breeds, such as Siberians, are more allergy-friendly than others.
If you have allergies, there are many things you can do to make owning a cat more comfortable. Establish certain rooms, such as the bedroom or study, as allergen free rooms where you can spend time away from you pet and breath more freely. House air filters and frequent vacuuming can also help.
Whatever your cat eats depends on what you feed it. Giving your cat bad food will put its health in jeopardy and possibly end its life. If you give it food suited for it, the cat will thrive. Keep this article handy and follow it closely when it’s feeding time.
