Ah, the beloved Persian cat! Why do people love them so? It's easy – the are gorgeous cats that come in a wide range of lovely colors and have gentle and sweet personalities to match. They are a good choice for most families although along with all this loveliness comes a few considerations. It should be taken into consideration that they do require more grooming than the average short-haired cat, they can occasionally be picky eaters and can have sensitive tummies. But the question is – do they need to eat a special diet formulated just for Persians?
The plants in your aquarium help oxygenate, filter, and maintain the overall chemical balance of your aquarium’s water. Because plants are such a significant lynchpin in terms of water quality, they are critical to the health of your fish, but what if your plants aren’t healthy?
So, we have all heard of a “finicky” eater, right? In most cases, it applies to kids. But, what do you do if you have a finicky cat on your hands?
Before you run out and start spending hundreds of dollars on specialty cat food, it’s best to take a look at some in-home remedies first. The problem may be as simple as your feeding bowl. Some cat actually has trouble eating from a bowl that is too small or too light.
Looking along the aisles of your local pet food store, you will find an enormous selection of so-called gourmet cat foods available. These foods usually claim to include exotic human-like ingredients, such as shrimp, lobster, fillet Mignon, prawns, and even rare Kobe beef from Japan. The question is whether or not these foods taste better and are better for your cat.
In order to own a healthier cat, you have decided to change your cat’s food diet after much pondering and discussion with your veterinary. But knowing that you own a finicky and choosy cat, you wonder if there is anything you can do to help your cat like its new diet.
Pet owners are fortunate these days to have a wide range of feeding choices for pets including dry food, canned, and raw food diets.
There has been considerable controversy surrounding the feeding of raw food diets to cats and dogs. Some veterinarians are quite opposed to this diet because they feel that it’s an unsafe and nutritionally lacking diet. On the other hand, some veterinarians and nutritionists believe that is vitally important for animals to ingest raw meat. To supporters of this type of diet (including the author), there is no doubt that this is a more healthy and natural way to feed pets. Having said that, there are questions to ask yourself and precautions that need to be taken while considering if this is a diet you can safely provide to your pet.
