Food Selection & Feeding
As cats start to age, they need exercise to stay healthy. Since the ultimate goal is to get your cat moving, using toys is often the best tactic, particularly the fishing-rod-type toys or small items your cat can chase. If you don’t have those cat toys, try using common household items, such as string, ribbons and bows for gift wrapping or even a ring from a milk-jug lid. Always monitor your cat with toys to ensure they do not swallow objects. Discard toys that show wear and have potential for losing small pieces that could be swallowed.
Allergies can develop at any time during your life, and, unfortunately, that can include allergies to animals. Cats are well known for causing allergic reactions in humans. If this should happen, there are a number of measures you can take to minimize your discomfort and live in harmony with your feline friend.
Proteins are essential nutrients used to promote muscle development, aid in tissue repair, provide energy and support healthy immune systems in all animals. During digestion, the body breaks down dietary protein into amino acids. Different species have different daily requirements for amino acids. Cats need more protein than dogs or humans.
