Is Your Cat Tired Of The Same Old Food?

Marty, the curious catWe all know how it is when we eat the same food for a period of time and get bored with it.  Think about your cat, if he’s eaten the same food for every meal for months, it might be time for a change.

Changing the protein source of your cat’s food will also help prevent him from developing food allergies to certain proteins.  For example, if his current food is chicken based, try one that’s not too similar, such as seafood or beef based.

When you decide to change his food, it’s important to do it gradually to minimize digestive problems for him.

Here is a schedule to follow when changing your cat’s food:

First Day-90% of his current food, 10% of the new variety

Second Day-80% current food, 20% new variety

Third Day-70% current food, 30% new variety

Days 4-10-Continue gradually reducing current food while increasing amount of new variety until change is complete

Watch his litter box to be sure he’s not having digestive issues with the change.  Following the gradual conversion schedule will give your cat a chance to get used to the flavor change and look forward to a new taste sensation.

Bon appétit!
