Our cats are members of our family. And just like feeding kids, when it comes to feeding cats I have to choose the right food. Cats can be picky little creatures, and our cats are no different. If I attempt to give them a food that they don’t like, instead of eat it, they will wait until some of our food is sitting around to try and eat that!
I will never forget the day I fixed myself a plate of leftover ham and sweet potatoes. I left in on the dining room table while I ran to do another chore, and my oldest son saw our calico cat, Esther, get on the table and start eating out of my plate. Instead of shooing her away, he actually took a picture. Oh, boy. Now I make sure to give the cats food they like.
Switching to IAMS ORAL CARE COMPLETE™
I recently learned that this new IAMS™ cat food not only provides cats with a diet that is 100% complete in nutrition for adult cats, but can also help combat oral care problems, the number one health issue cats face today. I haven’t always been diligent about taking care of our cats’ teeth, so I figured if I can feed them a cat food that helps keep their teeth clean, that would definitely be a benefit.
When I switch cat food, I do a slow transition much like weaning a baby off of formula onto milk. I start by giving my cats 25% of the new food and 75% of the old food in their dish. I continue increasing the new food and decreasing the old food by 25% until they are only eating the new food. This helps the cats’ digestive systems get used to the new food, and it also helps to acclimate them to the new taste.
Now that my cats have been on IAMS ORAL CARE COMPLETE™ for a couple of weeks, I have definitely noticed a difference in their playfulness. All three of our cats enjoy chasing yarn and laser lights. With five young kids in our house, our cats are extremely tolerant of noise and play. Their new cat food just helps them keep up with the kids!
