Eight forbidden foods for cats

Feeding cats with leftovers is a thing of the past. Commercial cat foods not only tick all the nutritional boxes, but also make our lives easier. Even so, we’re not always in control, like when we drop something edible, or when we’re tempted to share our own meal with our furry feline friend. We need to keep in mind the fact that there are some foods that cats must not eat, and that can cause food poisoning, intolerances and nutritional deficiencies that can pose a threat to their health.

Fat cat

Is my cat fat?

You look at your cat, and you’re glad to see it’s happy, but then you think to yourself, ‘Has he put on some weight?’. Excess weight and obesity in cats is par for the course. The reasons for this are that cats usually live sedentary lives, and we often neglect their diets, providing them with inadequate nutrition. If you’re one of the many people wondering whether your cat is in fact fat, we’re here to provide you all the information you need to verify whether it is, and how to put a stop to it. This is really important because fat cats tend to develop illnesses that can reduce their life span and the quality of their life.

The importance of your cat’s litter tray

The litter tray is one of the most important accessories for a cat, so we want to help you to choose one. Choosing the right shape and size, the most suitable cat litter, and knowing the best place to put it, are key aspects to take into account. Cats are naturally very clean animals. As long as there are no health or behaviour issues, they will automatically use the litter tray. Urinating and defecating on sandy surfaces away from the areas where they rest or eat are things that kittens learn from their mothers when just a few weeks old.
