I’m not a cat person. I don’t dislike cats, I just don’t know a lot about them. The two cats at Sadie’s daycare are terrific and perform the most important job of greeters and I believe they’d be quite capable of running the computer or even answering the phone if asked.
I’ve made lots of “cat lady” friends this past year finding them not to be eccentric, but pretty smart and very funny. We all agree…dogs and cats are very different, but one thing they both need is good nutrition. I wouldn’t have a clue what to feed a cat, but have done some research on this lately. I remember all the cartoons showing a saucer of milk for kitty, but today’s cat food has come a long way to meet the nutritional needs of house cats.
In the wild, cats would kill and eat their food and obtained most of their moisture from this source. Many people feed their cat only dry kibble, greatly denying them needed moisture in their diet. Cats are carnivores and a good choice for healthy cat food is a grain- free wet food that provides a good balance of nutrients which can be mixed with a kibble for variety. Cats are entitled to gourmet meals just as dogs are and Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ is a good choice for an all-natural, grain-free cat food.
One of the great foods in this line is Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Grain-Free Natural Chicken & Potato Recipe Adult. This is a complete balanced meal for your cat, but if you prefer to mix it with wet food you can choose from a number of selections in the Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ wet food including roasted turkey, tuna, and salmon. And if you prefer grain in your cat’s food, then Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ Natural Chicken & Brown Rice Recipe Adult might be for your cat.
Our pets are part of the family and we try to do as much for them as any other family member. Feeding your cat a nutritious, balanced diet is one way you can take the Sam care with their diet as you do with the family dinner. Here are some important things about Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ food for your cat:
Cats like treats as much as dogs, in fact I’m told they feel entitled to them! Ideal Balance™ has a great selection of treats for both cats and dogs.
Feeding your cat a variety of Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ kibble, wet food, and treats gives them a triple dose of good nutrition.
Here’s a link to the Hill’s website where you’ll find a nifty tool to help you decide which diet is best for your cat. http://www.hillspet.com/ideal-balance/ideal-balance-cat-food.html
The next time Sadie and I visit someone with cats, I won’t worry when she sneaks and eats their food. Sadly, she has been guilty of this crime, but if the cats are eating Hill’s® Ideal Balance™ I’ll have no problem if she eats a little cat food. I only hope she doesn’t start purring in her sleep.
