Until they are 3-4 weeks old, their mother’s milk is ideal. It is essential for weight gain and also for their physical and cognitive development.
You can introduce solid food gradually so that they get used to it over time. Your vet can advise you on the best time for doing this.
At this stage, they need much more protein and energy than an adult cat and, therefore, it is important that their food is highly concentrated in nutrients and takes their needs for healthy growth into account.
Do you have a kitten? Try Libra Kitten with all the essential nutrients for their correct growth.
Your cat is considered an adult from 12 months. Their food must help to keep them in an optimum physical condition, with a healthy, glossy coat and good general wellbeing.
Adult cat food such as Libra Adult helps them to stay in good physical condition.
Neutered cats tend to gain weight because they often eat more, while their energy requirements are lower.
Due to this, it is important to find food that helps to satiate them and to control their weight.
Libra Adult Sterilized is specifically formulated to provide the nutritional balance that your neutered cat requires.
This is a subject that you shouldn't worry about too much. To cover their nutritional needs, cats eat when they are hungry.
Due to this, the usual thing to do is to fill their bowl once a day and let your cat eat when they feel like it. This is because cats can go to their feeding bowl between 8 and 20 times a day.
A useful tip! A bowl with food in it but no food in the middle equals "totally empty" for your cat. If you notice this, refill their bowl.
Water is very important for your cat. It helps to prevent problems with their urinary tract, among other things. But you may have noticed that sometimes they have trouble drinking water. So here are a few tips to get them to drink more and feel great.
Opt for a bowl made from a material that does not absorb odours, such as glass.
This bowl must be separate and be sufficiently distanced from their food so they don't get bits of food in the water. It should also be kept away from their litter tray.
Place several bowls of water around different parts of your home (including the balcony or garden, if you have one).
Ensure you change the water frequently and that it is always clean and fresh.
If your cat won't drink water, you could try giving them bottled water instead of water from the tap, which contains a lot of lime.
In the summer, you could place an ice cube in their bowl. They will try to hunt it and, in doing so, drink some of the water.
