    The best thing which we bought for our furry friend is an automatic cat feeder. You can set the times and quantity of food for the time you are at home and for the times you are away. Same with the medication if the furry takes some. Here is a great article about cat feeders -  https://www.catfoodpoint.com/best-automatic-cat-feeder/.  Hope it helps.

    In this video, we'll be discussing the important nutritional needs of cats, and why they're different from dogs. You'll also learn how to identify the signs of a well-nourished cat and how to supplement their diet if needed.


    With hundreds of pet food brands, crazy treat trends, and confusing ingredients, it’s hard to know what’s best for your cat. In an age of technology where it’s so easy to be misled and get inaccurate answers online, we’ve put together a comprehensive nutrition guide, complete with all the information you need to plan for your cat’s diet.


    Since cats tend to eat the same food at almost every meal, it’s easy to understand just how important it is that you select a food that will completely meet your cat’s nutritional needs. Establishing a healthy diet plan will not only help your cat maintain a healthy body weight, but it will also improve his quality of life and even extend his lifespan

    Yes, it might be counter-intuitive for someone who's not used to cats, but they eat in very small portions, up to 12 times a day! That's not unhealthy, that's how they work (small stomachs+high energy consumption). 

    Of course, you don't need to watch over their bowl and feed them 12 times a day, feed them 2 or 3 times a day and they'll go eat whenever they want. 


    And, finally, even if they're not hungry, they may ask loudly and repeatedly for your food whenever you're cooking or eating yourself. Do not give them from your plate, but you can, sometimes, give them some boiled or steamed chicken or fish at THEIR feeding time (not yours).

    Hi, cats usually eat several times a day.

    Agree. And they will stop eating once they realize they're not hungry anymore ☺
