Feed your pet the right diet. Give cats cat food – don’t forget, a cat is not a small dog! Cat food is made to contain all the nutrients that your cat needs in a day- other types of food or human food does not contain everything your cat needs in the right amounts.
Read cat food labels carefully- this is where you can find out if the food is right for your pet.
Use the feeding guide. Remember your pet is an individual and the guide is just an idea. So a lively, playful cat may need more food than an older cat that is doesn’t do as much. If in doubt ask your vet.
Make sure your cat always has plenty of fresh clean water available. If you are feeding dry cat food make sure you have plenty of water available.
Give your cat its own bowls for food and water and don’t forget to wash up!
Give your cat space when they are eating, as they like peaceful, private time to enjoy their food
Feed a lot of treats because you'll then need to feed them less at mealtimes, which means they are then missing out on essential nutrients that keep cats healthy.
Give human food snacks and treats to your cat. These are often too fattening for them and lead to them putting on weight.
Overfill your cat's bowl if it looks like a small portion- follow the feeding guide as cat food is often very energy dense so they don't need large portions.
