Cat food

Hallo everyone

Since 3 months we have our little Abyssinian kitten living with us at home. As she is a house cat and not allowed to go outside we have looked around for some "proper" cat food for her. It annoyed us to see that so much cat food has sugar and grain/vegtables in that the cats dont need. We finally found on the internet Felican and since then she is eating the wet and dry food from them.

I would like to ask what others kitty moms feed their little tiggers and what could be an good alternative to the Felican? There are just so many products out there but what counts is mostly the experience.

Thanks and look forward to hearing from all.

I feed her whatever cat food I find at the grocery store.

Re: Cat food

I order online in bulk and have the food delivered. I change the types from time to time because the kitties get bored. We've tried lots and lots of brands, less and more expensive, and Gourmet Pearl is always a hit with them. Recently we've stocked up on wet food by Royal Canin.
They are occasionally treated to beef, which needs to be frozen for a few days before serving.

Re: Cat food

Breakfast - Feline Porta tinned food (70g tin for two)
Dinner - raw meat (all sorts except porc, which should never be eaten raw) mixed with special bone meal (TC Premix) to make it more, erm, "mouselike" (120 g for two)
Free feed - High quality cat food such as Royal Canin, Josera, Acana and Orijen - I usually mix up a few varieties together. Royal Canin has a few not so good things in it so a bit less of that but they actually like that the best...
It's quite expensive, I spend between 150 and 200 francs per month for my two kittens but I feel they deserve the best possible diet to keep them healthy and happy. I order the raw meat from Goldenway, it comes in freezer boxes within 24 hrs of ordering. I defrost it, then mix it with the TC Premix and divide it up into little bags which go back in the freezer - I then defrost one a day.

Plenty of water - I have a few bowls all over the apartment, they drink a lot, which is great. The bowl they least drink out if is next to the food, so if you want your kitty to drink more, definitely consider putting their drinking bowl in another place.

Re: Cat food

Either dry Iams or Royal Canine. With plenty of drinking water.

Beautiful cat BTW (I almost said pussy there)
