How often should you feed your cat?
Koko needs to be feed 4 to 5 times a day because he gets seizures due to him being born with only his right side of his brain. So most of other cats also eat 3 times a day. Most cats only need to be fed 2 x a day am and pm. Here is more specific information based on age.
What foods do we recommend?
Koko needs a high protein diet due to his seizures. So he gets a combo of wet food, dry food and raw. Plus the occasional In and Out Burger ( the only hamburger he will eat - no cheese please)
We are currently feeding Orijen Fit and Trim dry Cat Food - It is expensive esp if you order it online- try to find it locally- our cats also love their treats.
We are also feeding them Dr. Martys Nature's Feast which is a freeze dried raw food-
Raw fresh local chicken breast from our local butcher - Yes a real butcher.
Gerber Turkey or Chicken Food- This is has no garlic or onion which is toxic to cats and dogs- This is great protein and high in water. If your pet is sick this is a great supplemental meal to offer. You can even warm it up to make it more appealing to a pet who has not been eating.
