Cat Eating Habits FAQs
Should Cats Eat Alone?
There is no problem if your cat prefers to eat alone, as long as it finishes what you have put on its plate.
Why Is My Cat Hungry All The Time?
One of the reasons your cat is hungry all the time could be that it is not being fed the right food. Diseases like diabetes and hyperthyroidism can also make your cat feel hungry all the time. If you notice unusual symptoms in your cat, it is advisable to get it checked by a vet.
What Do You Feed A Cat That Refuses To Eat?
If your cat refuses to eat, it might not just be because it is a finicky eater. It may also be experiencing health issues like kidney failure or infection in its intestines. Another reason for your cat rejecting food maybe furballs. Furballs are foreign obstacles that get stuck in the cat’s digestive tract, making it hard for your cat to eat food. So, if you notice your cat not eating food, it is advisable to consult the vet immediately.
If you have ruled out health issues with the vet, then here are some tips on how to feed a cat:
• In controlled quantities, you may introduce canned tuna or liver in your cat’s food. This will lure your cat to eat what has been served on its plate.
• Try keeping its feeding bowl at different places to see what place your cat finds comfortable to eat at.
• Let your cat get hungry. Keep some hours distance between 2 meals as this break will make your cat hungry.
• Do not keep the food in your cat’s plate all the time. Only serve fresh food when it is time for your cat to eat.
