How Can I Get My Cat to Drink More Water?
Please note that the Ragdoll breed can be more sensitive in the way of foods and even vaccines, especially feline leukemia. As you may know: tyne Ragdoll tends to assimilate chicken and turkey-based foods the best. Knowing this, some ragdolls do not tolerate fish-based Foods very well.
Fish is not a typically natural part of the evolutionary feline diet. So if your Ragdoll is a cat that tolerates and well, the fish-based diet should be given no more than two quarters of the year, or in a can, food rotated at the least. When fish it’s further down in the ingredients list, year-round is fine.
Ragdolls do not tolerate junk-based/ grain-based and many grocery store brand Foods. Ragdolls will not thrive on such things. We understand that life can happen, and one must do what one has to do to eat and make sure that their pet is fed. Outside of that event, we recommend using a high-quality super premium holistic cat food, and we require our customers to use life’s abundance super premium food for the first nine months to a year. Within that time frame and thereafter, we recommend a rotation, especially after the 9-month period of similar foods rotating life’s abundance with others of equal or higher quality.
If you feed canned and dry, you can and should always switch up the canned foods for variety. Chicken, pork, turkey, lamb, and organs included are great things to rotate with. Salmon & herring are good, too, provided your cat/kitten does well with them.
At our cattery, we feed our pregnant mothers fish, beef, and pork-based foods. Also, the kittens will have been on such a variety when weaned. So our kittens are well suited to eat a variety of animal proteins in raw, kibble, can, and even Raw eggs and goat’s milk. Thus, our kittens won’t be so sensitive in the stomach as with many cats/kittens.
In conclusion, if we watch for these things and give variety, our cats will be healthier because of a broader profile of readily available nutrients. Each animal protein has its own amino acid profile and various nutrients, which will provide a solid foundation of health for a promising future. This is biologically appropriate for our carnivorous feline companion.
