Cat food:
The cat is a carnivorous animal, so it has adapted over time to a varied diet because of its domestication by man. But the cat is not a human being and should not be fed like us. He usually eats several times a day. The smell and taste play an important role in the cat's choice of food.  

Essential nutrition for cats:

This animal's diet must include a balance of nutritional elements such as:
-Carbon Hydrates
-Mineral salts

The different types of cat food:

There are many different kinds of foods for your cat in stores and supermarkets, including dry foods such as kibbles and canned wet foods such as pâtés.

So it is advised by most veterinarians to adapt a healthy food for your cat who prefers rice meals with chicken and carrots, all mixed and cut into small cubes.

Cats prefer warm or room temperature meals. If they are not given the right food (quality, taste), they can develop behavioural problems and be more susceptible to disease,

Cat Feeding Tips:
Balanced rations:
Try to feed your cat an amount according to his weight including a lightly boiled meat mixture with cooked cereals, cooked green vegetables and corn oil.
Small quantities but often
The cat must take its meals independently, it must be given small rations but several times during the day.
Food temperature :

You should avoid giving your cat a sweet food like chocolate, it can cause poisoning. On the other hand there are cat treats that you can give him occasionally.
