Cats, their diet and whims

Cats, their diet and whims

The way you train your kitten will leave a mark on its personality for the rest of its life. This is why it is indispensable that you set the appropriate behavioural standards when it is still a kitten. One of the main aspects to be considered when training your kitten is its diet, unless you want it to turn into the king of whims.

Therefore, it is important to keep in mind that the cat's eating area must be clean and quiet, since cats hate being disturbed while they eat. If you have more than one cat, it is important to distinguish their respective feeding bowls to make them understand they have enough food. Besides, your cat should have at its disposal several fresh water bowls located in different areas of the house.

Sometimes your cat may not feel like eating. In this case, what you have to do is to feed it with small portions several times a day. If your cat spends too many days without eating, it might have some kind of health problem.

In order to be aware of your cat's health condition, you should know some of the reasons why it may stop eating: changes in its diet or a too wide a variety of food; it is tired of the same food and wants something different; it is not comfortable in its eating area or maybe it is just feeling stressed. For all of these reasons, it is important not to lose sight of your little gourmet and to try to satisfy its dietary needs, unless these are just eating whims.
