Cats need more protein than any other mammal on earth
Cats can taste bitter but not sweet. They are known as “obligate carnivores” lacking the enzymes to properly digest vegetable matter. They can get finicky if you feed them the same thing every single day. And they can become obese if overfed or too sedate.
Many cats prefer their food warm. If the burgers are still cool after thawing, just mix in a little warm water.
But let’s start with the obvious…how much raw food do I feed my cat? There’s math involved…. It’s easy.
Cats come in many shapes and sizes. Some are wildly active and some prefer resting on a soft pillow or in a ray of sunshine…all day. You have to take into account you cat’s weight, activity level and any treats you may feed your pet. The following math is just an average, common sense is the rule.
The average cat should consume two meals a day.
If your cat is inactive or needs to lose weight
Your cat’s weight x /02 x 16 (oz)
(example for 10 lb cat: 10 x.02= 0.2 0.2 x 16 = 3.2 ounces per day/two meals
If your cat has normal activity and should maintain weight
Your cat’s weight x .025 x 16 (oz)
(example for 10 lb cat: 10 x .025 = 0.25 0.25 x 16 = 4 ounces per day/two meals
If your cat is very active or needs to gain weight
You cat’s weight x .025 x 16 (oz)
(example for 10 lb cat: 10 x .03 = 0.3 0.3 x 16 = 4.8 ounces per day/ two meals
*Kittens need 5% of their body weight per day. Preferable in at least 2 or 3 meals daily.
Fresh water must be available 24hrs per day. Change water more than once a day or you can invest in an automatic water feeder.
