I don’t know about you, but we are an animal loving family. We LOVE our pets and they are literally part of our family! We have Bruzer (our Chihuahua), Olaf (our dwarf bunny) and Daisy (our Tabby cat). If we had more room, we’d have more animals! We love to keep our pets happy, which means keeping them healthy. Today I am going to share three tips for a healthy feline friend.
1. Feed your cat a healthy, nourishing cat food.
Until recently, I haven’t paid much attention to the ingredients in my pets foods. Since our family has transitioned to a mostly gluten free, more healthy conscious diet, I have been a label reading crazy person. I noticed that the foods I had been purchasing my cat were not at all nutritious for her, which was probably contributing to her weight issue. So I decided to try out Rachael Ray Nutrish cat food after reading the label.
- Real whitefish is the #1 ingredient
- Zero grains, glutens or fillers
- Zero meat or poultry by-product meal
- Zero artificial preservatives, colors or flavors
- First zero grain dry cat formula
I introduced Rachael Ray Nutrish to my Daisy girl by giving her half of her old food and half Rachael Ray Nutrish for the first week, then I slowly started weening out the old cat food. Daisy had no problem taking to Rachael Ray Nutrish at all! She LOVES it! Get a $3 off coupon for it HERE!
2. Play time!
Cats can be super lazy animals (now you know where the term “cat nap” comes from) if you don’t encourage them to play. It can be something as simple as a piece of yarn or a cat toy with a bell. Either way, get out that toy and play with your kitty at least once a day.
3. Set aside time for brushings.
Purchase yourself a good animal brush and set aside time to brush your cat. This helps with shedding, fur balls, and they absolutely LOVE it. It’s like the best pet session ever. I typically do this once a week, but you can always do it more. I’m sure your kitty won’t object!
Keeping a healthy pet means a happy, content pet is so important. With these three tips, I guarantee your kitty will be a happy one!
