Gained from our years of experience, here are a few more helpful hints regarding food and water for your Kitten.
have not had success with the “Kitty Water Fountains” only because Bengals enjoy
playing with moving water and more water ends up on the floor than coming
from the spout! All cats like and require fresh water in clean dishes daily. Cats' systems are more sensitive than dogs' systems. Several day "old" water can be contaminated with naturally occurring giardia bacteria and it can make your Kitten or Cat sick. Loss of appetite, lethargy, and loose stools are the symptoms and would need to be treated with antibiotics by a Veterinarian.
• Our Cattery chooses to feed both wet canned Cat food and raw meat, as well as dry no grain Cat food and recommend continuing with the high-grade
food that we use and recommend for optimum health of your new Bengal Kitten. We also feed our pregnant and nursing mothers, and our Kittens, Evo 95% protein canned wet Cat food between 20% to 50% of their daily in take. Mother's and Babies need extra nutrition and moisture for optimum health. We prefer to feed "Blue Buffalo Wilderness" dried food for snacking and a large main meal of our homemade raw tartare to our adult Cats. Check on the "Cat Health"
page for more information regarding feeding your Kitten or Cat. Visit www.BlueBuffalo.com for more information on their grain-free "Wilderness" formula of Cat foods.
• Many Cats enjoy having "treats" in addition to their regular food. There are many varieties on the market and we choose organic real chicken/turkey or fish based treats for our Cats. Many of our Kitten owners have found that the freeze dried salmon is a favorite special treat. Bonita flakes are also a favorite of many of our Cats and Kittens. Check with us on availability, as we are a new dealer for the best Bonita Cat treats that we have found on the market! Just remember... these are special treats and not a large per cent of your Cats diet.
recommended diet is our Cattery's personal choice for our Kittens and
Cats and it is our opinion. There are many types and brands of Cat food
and the individual Kitten/Cat owner needs to make their own choice of
product for feeding their Kitten or Cat. Please see our "Disclosure" page
for further information. That being said, we do feel that with our years of experience, we have found some of the best methods and products on the market today. We do continuing education with our Feline Specialist Veterinarian to be able to not only keep our Cats and Kittens in the best of health, but also to be able to assist our Kitten and Cat Owners with our knowledge and experience.
