Cat food - what to pay attention to when choosing it?

When looking for the right cat food, you need to consider all the requirements of your cat. The needs of each cat are completely different and largely dependent on your pet's lifestyle, level of activity and life stage. There is no one-size-fits-all cat food for the lazy, elderly cat and the energetic kitten who goes wild and running all day. When you choose your cat's food, pay attention to every aspect of their day and every detail that makes your cat unlike any other. If you do not know which food to choose, your local Husse nutritionist will be happy to help you choose the food that is best for your cat. You can also use our tool "Find the perfect food". Husse is a cat food brand where the needs of pets always come first. Below you will find all the aspects you need to consider when choosing the right cat food.

The age of the cat

It's best to start with your cat's age. This is a great starting point that will greatly help you narrow down the range of products you can choose from. Adult cat food will differ significantly in composition from food for a small kitten. Kittens need a diet that will support their healthy development and growth, so it is extremely important to give the right formula in the first year of your pet's life. The calorific value of an adult cat's diet is higher than that intended for mature and senior cats. However, in geriatric cats, it may be more important to increase their caloric intake to sustain a normal body condition and weight because they tend to naturally decline with more advanced age. For an older cat, it is worth choosing a formula with a delicate composition or grain-free, which is less likely to irritate the sensitive digestive system of an older cat. Always consult with your pet’s veterinarian before changing the food.

Cat activity level

Cats are known to be able to spend 12 to 16 hours napping or lounging. However, how cats spend time when awake can vary drastically. Depending on how your cat spends her free time, her diet should also be slightly different. If your cat loves to run, you must choose a diet that is higher in calories than in the case of a lazy cat who prefers to lie in warm places at home. Too high calorific value in the diet of a less active cat may lead to the accumulation of unnecessary kilograms, and in the long run, to overweight or even obesity. Therefore, before you decide on any food for your cat, assess his level of activity during the day - this will help you choose a diet that will make your dog feel great and will provide him with the appropriate level of daily energy.

Individual needs

Age and activity levels aren't all you need to consider when choosing a cat food. If you have a kitty at home after neutering or sterilisation, remember that such cat's diet must contain less fat and more fibre - thanks to this, it will satisfy the appetite for longer, without exceeding the cat's daily requirements. If you have a cat at home with problems or diseases of the urinary system, choose a food with the addition of cranberries in a composition that has a beneficial effect on the urinary tract. Does your cat have a sensitive stomach or food allergies? Pick a delicate, gluten lamb-based food or a grain free recipe. Cat food has a huge impact on the health and well-being of your four-legged friend. Therefore, it is extremely important to choose a food that is tailored to the individual needs of your cat.

Is dry cat food a good choice?

Dry cat food is very often a bone of contention among cat keepers. Many cat owners believe that dry cat food is the worst food that can be given to a purr. There is also a whole group of fans of dry food for cats. Cat keepers have argued for years whether dry food is a good choice for the cat. Wild cats are used to getting fluids mainly from their meals. Therefore, dry cat food for a domestic pet who is not convinced to drink water from a bowl is at risk of an inappropriate level of hydration. When deciding on a dry food diet, make sure your cat is getting enough fluids throughout the day. Remember that you can add wet food to dry cat food, which will not only improve its palatability, but also help to keep your cat's body properly hydrated. Dry cat food is one of the most economical solutions available on the market. If you have a large group of cats that you care for, dry food will provide the cats with the appropriate level of daily energy in a smaller portion than wet food. In addition, thanks to the use of dry food, you can also take care of the cat's oral hygiene. The crunchy structure of the food's kibbles supports the mechanical cleaning of the teeth, which can be extremely helpful for your furry friend who does not like brushing their teeth. Do you have a cat at home that likes to be picky? Dry cat food does not deteriorate in a bowl as quickly as wet cat food, and it is much easier to store too. Dry cat food is also more convenient for measuring portions.
