When preparing the lunch or dinner menu for our cat, we often forget that our four-legged companion is not a human being and that his diet must follow some important rules that will best preserve his health.
So let’s try to induce some simple advice that will avoid nasty surprises in the management of the pet. First of all, avoid giving foods that are too cold or too hot, but only at room temperature or warm. In this way, you will also respect the nature of the cat that, being a predator, kills and eats its prey at that temperature.
Again, avoid seasoning the fish with lemon, which is a poisonous substance for the cat and, in addition, always remove the thorns from the sea-based dishes. On the other hand, if you provide meat, take care that there are no bones or splinters!
Also try to reduce to a minimum the meats and sausages, dose the molluscs well (which can remain indigestible to the cat) and give milk only if it is well-tolerated, and preferably whole (in the case in which the cat has diarrhea after such a meal, avoid continuing the administration of the laсt and talk to your veterinarian).
Finally Avoid the cheese spicy, fatty and salty, potatoes (which favor the formation of boluses of hair), the raw egg (the yolk rather good), bread, sweets, dog food, the leftovers: our cat deserves more attention than our waste, especially if it is a food that has undergone a rather aggressive dressing or frying.
In case of doubt, ask your veterinarian, who will certainly advise you on the best method to feed the cat in full respect of its nature.
