Dogs are essentially pack animals and their early survival was dependent on scavenger food hunts. But cats have emerged from smaller desert felines which hunted birds and mice. The natural prey for cats was available in abundance and was not very challenging to catch. Therefore, they did not develop the need to gulp down any food that was given to them. So it is not unnatural for your kitty to refuse a bowl of food that is laid down in front of it and walk away simply uninterested. Here is some help in understanding the foods that cats love and will never say no to.
Top foods for feeding your pet cat
Include these delicious delights in your cat’s daily feed and keep them healthy and happy!
- TunaAs soon as you open that can of yummy tuna, you will know why it’s ranked high in the ‘favorite cat food’ list. There is no need to do anything fancy with the canned tuna. You simply have to offer some pieces to your cat to earn the brownie points from them. Alternatively, you could also prepare tuna cakes. But you have to be careful because several cats are intolerant towards mayo. Also remember to avoid spicy tuna as it might not go down well with your cat. Plain tuna is ideal for serving to your kitty.
- HamFor those who like eating ham, be prepared to serve some bites to your cat too. It is not advisable to offer them the typical meat ham as it has a high amount of harmful nitrates and other additives, which might not be good for the cat’s health. If your cat savors ham, give it fresh ham instead.
Even though cats love milk, very few people know that these animals also like yogurt and ice cream! These are milk-based products and therefore offer the same kind of pleasure to the cat’s taste buds as dairy milk. In addition to this, the probiotics present in yogurt help in easing the digestion process in case the cat is lactose intolerant.
It is a good idea to serve plain yogurt to your cat, instead of picking artificially flavored varieties. Similarly, if your cat is an ice-cream lover, try giving it coconut milk-based varieties or organic ice-creams. These not only taste good but are also very healthy for your cat.
Other foods that have been ranked popular among cats include eggs, canned salmon, sardines, chicken, fish sticks etc. Some cats also love food prepared in coconut oil. It is important to remember that your cat’s daily feed should be nutritionally balanced in addition to being tasty.
