Caring For Older Cats – Nutritional Cat Food
When people think of having a baby or adopting one, one of the first things they do is to sit down and calculate what it might cost and how they can afford it. They don’t just think of how cute a baby is and then go for it. When people think of adopting a cat on the other hand, the most serious thinking they probably do is to think of the endless hours of fluffy fun. Perhaps it’s because kitty cats are small. People are fooled into thinking that there can’t be much to the cost of owning a cat.

When the cat spots something different or special in their food bowl, they will probably eat the meal so quickly and efficiently that they would not notice if you were to place a foreign object inside it.
I strongly suggest changing your cat’s diet over a minimum of a week to get it used to the new food. You will need to mix a little of the new food in with what your cat normally eats and slowly increase this. Once your cat is happily eating a mix of majority new food, you can stop adding in the old food. Of course you can feed your cat a homemade diet but speak to your vet about the best way to do this.
Stroke the cat’s neck and chin area in a calm manner to coax the pill down. Once you are sure that the pill is gone, offer your pet something for their troubles. Eventually, they may associate taking a pill with good things if you are consistent.
