Which is the right cat food for me?
Catering for your cat can be a daunting task.
For a minute let's imagine that your cat isn’t a refined and majestic hunter that only enjoys the best food, there is a still a long listed of confusing cat foods out there that are designed to target different nutritional needs of different types of cats.
With this in mind here is a concise explanation of the different types of cat food available to you and some of the delicious flavours that even the most refined feline wouldn’t turn their nose up at.
Adult cat food – Available in a variety of prices and ingredients, from Iams Adult Cat Food with Chicken, to James Wellbeloved Lamb and Rice Cat Food, this type of cat food is designed specifically for the needs of adult cats. As a result they won’t be as sensitive to age, weight levels or other unusual nutritional needs.
Kitten food – Specifically tailored for the needs of growing kittens, kitten foods such as the Meowing Heads Smitten Kitten Salmon Kitten Food are rich in vitamins and fat levels, to promote healthy growth and brain development.
Sensitive cat food – This cat food is perfect for cats who are fussy eaters, or who have a highly sensitive digestive system. For example, the Royal Canin Sensible 33 Cat Food includes ingredients focusing on plant and mineral extract which are easily digestible.
Senior cat food – To keep their well-seasoned bodies in top condition senior cat food such as Iams Cats Senior and Mature 7+ are designed to look after your older cat’s sensitive stomach, teeth, digestion, joints and of course the brain.
Light cat food – While still available in premium quality cat foods such as the Arden Grange Light Cat Food include ingredients aimed at cats that are less active or overweight. This cat food in particular allows maximum digestion, with lean ingredients that still allow maximum nutrition.
Weaning kittens – Especially young kittens often require more attention than normal, that’s why the Royal Canin Kitten 36 focuses on kittens between one and 12 months, specifically when the kitten is weaning.
