Owning a cat is the fastest way to be promoted to the official position. Cats not only enliven the atmosphere of life, but also provide priceless companionship. The owner spent huge sums of money on toys and carefully made supplementary food to keep the cat healthy and happy. While some foods are cat-friendly, others can be deadly. GGH will share some knowledge about cat supplementary food, so that cats can eat happily and at ease.
The picky eaters of cats are definitely at the level of "God of Cookery" in the animal world, ranging from the taste of cat food to the freeze-dried shape and meat of cat strips. The excrement shoveler spent most of the day working hard to make a meal for cats. The cat sniffed it, scratched its paws twice, and then ran away. It couldn’t find it when it hid. It was as big as a gas tank and could support it from looking for food all day long. . Homemade fresh food is inconvenient to preserve, and the excrement shoveler looked at the wasted effort in the bowl, leaving a face full of astonishment. Since cats are picky eaters, of course we have to find out what they like to eat.
Cat's preferred food status
Cats have a special liking for specific foods. We have integrated a number of cat petting guides from senior excrement shovelers to help you reach the top of the list of complementary foods that cats love. Types of food cats like:
First place: Chunks of crispy chicken breast freeze-dried
Human-like wafers, with a crispy texture and concentrated meaty aroma. The large pieces are easy to chew, which satisfies the nature of cats who have a small bite force but like to bite.
Second place: mushy food
Represented by semi-liquid food such as cat strips, it is in line with the habit of cats licking and eating.
Third place: Tender shredded pork
Choose fat and thin chicken breasts, boil them and tear them into thin shreds, which is easy for cats to swallow, and it is not easy to vomit due to eating too fast.
Fourth place: Sliced meat such as fat beef and fat sheep has a soft structure and is easy for cats to tear apart. Pulling the sliced meat can stimulate their enthusiasm for eating.
Fourth place: jelly jelly, many canned hydrating snacks on the market are jelly texture, wrapped in natural food attractants tuna, shrimp, shellfish and boiled carrots, peas, cats love to eat. The excrement shoveler can also use isinglass, pigskin, and gelatin sheets to make hydrating jelly at home.
Whole young poultry: Young quail and other poultry are connected by bone and meat. After being cooked, the bones are soft, the internal organs are rich, and the gravy is delicious. Cats can easily bite it.
The fifth sweet vegetable and fruit: cats like broccoli, zucchini, sweet potato, radish, papaya, durian, dragon fruit and other fruits and vegetables with high sweetness.
cats hate food status
The first place: dry and hard food, cats really can't bite the dried fish, and they are not interested.
The second place: Chaikou's meat, such as lump lamb and duck, boiled chicken breast and soup dregs. Although the soup residue is nutritious and healthy, cats probably disdain to eat woody and tough meat, and need to use a cooking machine to make it again.
Third place: Solid food submerged in water. Cats don’t know how to eat utensils, so they have to lick the water before eating food. After drinking the water, they already feel full, which affects eating.
The fourth place: slippery and fine particle food such as steamed eggs. Cats mainly rely on licking to get involved in food. They do not have the function of sucking and slipping, so it is very laborious to eat.
Freshwater fish: It is a myth that cats like to eat fish. Freshwater fish is spiny and has a strong earthy smell. Domestic cats who have been living on granular dry food since childhood do not like to eat it.
New types of food: cats are sensitive and suspicious by nature, and think that everything they have never eaten is dangerous. The excrement shoveler can try to stuff a small piece into the cat's mouth, and the cat will eat automatically after tasting the delicacy in the world. This is how my cat loves to eat durian.
Overnight ingredients: wild genes can accurately identify stale food and express disgust.
Foods Cats Can Eat
A balanced diet requires a mix of meat and vegetables, and cats are pure carnivores, so cat food and meat should be the main food at ordinary times, and the intake of vegetables and fruits should be within 5% of the staple food. Intake of fruits and vegetables can supplement vitamins and minerals, enhance gastrointestinal motility, reduce food accumulation, and regulate stool status. After all, cats do not like to eat vegetables, so they can be mixed with eight servings of meat and one serving of vegetables.
