Cats need fresh water

By Kelly  

It has come to my attention that I have been neglecting my feline friends out there! So, here are some interesting tips for all of us cat lovers!

Please make sure you cat has fresh water at all times. Cats especially will not drink or I should say “don’t care for stagnant water”. If you think about it, in the wild animals steer clear of stagnant water because there is a risk of contamination and bacteria. (Unless they absolutely have no choice) So, it makes sense that they would be drawn to flowing water. In fact, I find my cats Jake and Oreo drink more with their fountain. I have a very simple Pet Mate fresh flow fountain with charcoal filters that you replace once a month. It keeps the water tasting fresh. Also, because cats are “Obligate Carnivores”-meaning Cats must eat meat, it is a biological necessity. Raw food would be considered the best for them, but some people can’t imagine feeding raw to their pets, so please make sure they get plenty of “wet food” aka canned food. Steer clear of grains and “animal fat”.

Animal fat can be ANY animal….-seriously, it’s allowed. So, when looking for the best diet for your feline friend, read labels and feel free to call The Paw Depot for a free consultation.

Lots of love, Kelly
