We all love cats and we treat them like they are our very own babies. Those four legged furry friends are amazing pets to have around; they will give a great amount of love and can be excellent companions. Cats are also one of the most common pets found all over the world that can live in small apartments and also larger house. They will have grooming and food maintenance however may not need long walks like dogs would. In research it has been found out that the purring of cat is a source of relaxation in the body and lowers blood pressure as well. Nothing is cuter and more comfortable than a cat purring and rubbing its head or body against you.

Food and diet is one of those things which can ensure a healthy life for your cat and for this the homemade cat food can play a very important part.

Tips for Preparing Cat Food

§  Add very slight amount of salt while preparing cat food to encourage water consumption. However, too much salt can be harmful to cat’s kidneys and also encourage shedding.

§  Small amounts of boiled vegetables can be used, but gas-producing vegetables should be avoided. So avoid using broccoli or cabbage should not be used.

§  Food should not be stored for over one week in the refrigerator. In case it is being frozen then food can be stored for six month, but once thawed, the food should not be stored again.

§  Store the food in air tight containers to preserve freshness.
