How should I introduce dry food into my cat's diet?
As with all pets, cats can be fussy when it comes to changing their food. We would therefore suggest a gradual change over the course of two weeks, progressively substituting a little more of the new dry food for the old food, until your pet can eat the dry food exclusively. It is important to note that your cat will probably drink more when being fed solely on dry food, due to there being less moisture in the food, additional water should be available at all times.
How much should I feed my cat?
The amount of food your cat requires will depend on their level of activity, size and metabolism so you should feed your cat enough to keep them in a lean condition. As cats tend to graze throughout the day they should have access to their food for several hours per day. It is also important to have a supply of fresh water available at all times.
Should I give my cat dry or wet food?
This really is down to your cats preference as both food types have merit. Dry food is great for tooth cleaning, while wet food contains a more meaty texture which some cats prefer so both are perfectly acceptable. To give your cat some variety You might like to try mixing a little dry kibble into her wet food.
My cat adores Webbox Cats Delight treats - can they be eaten at every mealtime?
Webbox Cats Delight treats, provide healthy nutrients, like protein, fibre and vitamins, however as a complementary food they are not a substitute for a proper meal. To ensure your cat has a balanced diet a complete food like Webbox Cat Stars, or Cats Delight pouches should be fed.
