Using free cat food samples
Manufacturers of cat food sometimes give away free samples of cat food. Cat food samples may be given away at pet stores or through their websites.
By giving away free samples of cat food, the manufacturers hope to gain customers.If the cat owner sees that the cat likes the cat food, the cat owner may be more likely to purchase the cat food.
Search engines may help a cat owner find free cat food samples. Searching for cat food samples on a search engine may show the cat owner websites that are giving away free samples of cat food.
Some cat food manufacturers have special programs for kitten owners and new cat owners. If the new cat owner or owner of a kitten registers, the manufacturer often sends a cat food sample and information on cat care.
Free cat food samples of new products are sometimes given away to cat owners. If a new cat food becomes available, the cat owner may want to check the manufacturers website for a free sample of the new cat food.
The disadvantage of using cat food samples is that the samples are rather small. Therefore, the sample may only be one serving for a cat. If the owner gives the cat samples of cat food that is different from the cats usual food, the change in food may upset the cats stomach.
To prevent the cat from becoming ill due to frequently switching the cat's food, the cat owner may add part of a dry cat food sample to the cat's normal food. Therefore, the cat's food is not being abruptly changed which can cause the cat to become sick.
