My cat Kinky is really snooty. I only had to walk in with a box of Lidl cat food and she rejected it on the packaging alone. She won’t even use Lidl cat litter which isn’t such a bad thing because it doesn’t cover odours.
Getting it right when it comes to feeding your cat can be very confusing. Prices vary so much yet they all contain dubious ingredients.
When I first got Kinky as a kitten; the vet said that dry food was best so I have been giving her ‘Go Cat complete’ dry food ever since and now she snubs her nose at any other dry food including Whiskers.
Is dry food better than canned food or pouches? The dry food is better for their dental care but does it have as many nutrients as canned food? Then there is that whole thing about canned food being full of ash which can’t be good for them.
Some sites advise you not to give your cat alcohol, marijuana or nicotine – they don’t mention heroin so I think I’ll let her carry on with her smack habit! Other sites say that tuna is bad because it can cause malnutrition – my friend gives her cat a can of tuna a day and it’s the size of a pony.
Like humans, I suppose it’s about giving your pet a balanced diet. Along with the dry food; I give Kinky raw food like tuna, chicken, ham or even a little bit of blue cheese now and then.
Well, if it’s dry food you’re after; Dunnes have reductions on pet food at the moment. These include; 375g box of Go Cat Complete – reduced from €1.89 to 99c and a 2kg bag of Go Cat Complete – reduced from €6.95 to €4.15.
What do you feed your cat (or dog) and why? Is price the biggest consideration?
