Discovering how to keep your cat healthy with good food may take you a little time to get your head around, but learning is all in the desire. And if you are reading this, then you probably have a strong desire to do just this.
Converting anyone’s diet is not without difficulty. Learning new ideas is just the beginning. We seem to be reluctant to let go of old ideas. Or perhaps it’s just the routine that we have difficulty in letting go. With the additional being of your cat in the equation, and therein lies another potential difficulty.
Just like children, cats on a diet they have been on for years, may rebel against anything new.
However, do be aware that it is possible to keep your cat much healthier than is the norm, by feeding good food. So all the early hurdles are worth it. More than you may ever realise. It will save you much heartache and a truck load of cash.
The best diet for cats is not found in the commercial cat food your vet may be advocating. Or in any other commercial cat food. The manufacturers of this food are only interested in their profit. The health of your cat is immaterial to them.
The rather sad thing is that these same manufacturers are the only influence on veterinary students regarding diet. You could say the vested interest is rather high.
That means you have to look elsewhere to get the information you need.
The answer to almost any complex question is normally easy and simple. The hard bit is implementing it.
The answer to the question on how to keep your cat healthy with good food, lies in how they evolved. And in how wild cats still survive. The genetic make up of cats is firmly rooted in their evolution. Their immune system can only work well when they consume the same food they have eaten from the dawn of time. NOTHING we have done can change that.
Keeping a cat healthy is all about keeping their immune system healthy. And that can only come from the right food for the species, minimum exposure to toxic chemicals and living a stress free life.
What is good food? How do you define it? It’s all natural food for cats, what they would eat in the wild – mice, birds, reptiles, whatever is around in plentiful supply.
That’s not something most of us would want to feed our cats. It offends our sensibilities. What we have to do is the model the food we feed them on what this tells us. Such as raw food is best, fresh food is best, the food must contain muscle meat, bones and organs to be balanced. And so forth.
In addition, cats have not evolved to deal with the alkaloids and such found in plants. So plant based food is not suitable for cats (just as drugs based on alkaloids are harmful to cats).
Having started to get your head around the idea of feeding your cat a healthy diet, now you have to work out what to feed you cat to keep the diet in perfect balance. Keeping in mind that you are probably busy, have other concerns to juggle, maybe work all day, and so forth.
You also have to convince your cat that this is the way of the future.
