Although cats are predators by living in a wild, domestic cats are in need of carbohydrates to support their digestive system while being indoor to compensate lack of nutrients from plants that grow outside. You may consider a low-grain diet for your cat as well and it could be beneficial for many indoor cats based on latest studies. Grain-free diet is good, but not for all cats.
According to cats instinct, felines need time between meals to fast.
Nibbling all day keeps adult cat's system alkaline that lowers their immunity which may easily cause Feline Urological Syndrome (FUS). We recommend to feed fully grown cats one or two meals per day , and more often to younger kittens. Additional diet info/suggestions can be viewed here.
We brush our cats with a bristle brush as often as needed to remove loose hair and clumpy fur. The felines eyes also have to be cleaned as needed to remove tear stains off their fur.
Although majority of cats do not enjoy to be bathed, baths may be required to limit their smell, dirt and loose hair.
Taking your pet to the groomers is good idea too, for their ‘extra care’(Ear cleaning, nail and fur trims). The time frame is based on your decision. We also recommend for your pet to have their teeth cleaned by a veterinarian once per year.
We raise quality felines with a lot of hard work. Our hard work pays off when we see delightful kittens join a new family were they will be loved and cared for. A feline does not require much from you, all it needs is love and proper care.
Remember, cats are carnivores. Their stomach and digestive system is designed to consume RAW foods and animal's protein . We feed our kitties fresh natural meat (Chicken, Beef, Lamb, Rabbit, Pigeon, Turkey, etc) and seafood (Shrimp, Lobster, Salmon, Trout, Sturgeon, Halibut, etc). Farm raised seafood is bad for cats. The side effects include sickness and weakness. Wild caught seafood is strongly recommended. We advise to feed pre-frozen products and strongly suggest you DO NOT feed them raw pork. Our cats also enjoy eating egg yolks, liver, gizzards, hearts, kidneys and other internal parts of animals that make an excellent feeding choice for daily meals or snacks. In addition, dairy with live bacteria such as yogurt, cultured milk, sour cream, etc. are offered as well.
Although commercially processed cat foods are convenient, they do not provide all the proper diet essentials. Raw foods supply maximum the nutrients needed for all life stages.
Is vaccination one of the most harmful things we do to our animals? No. Why do we vaccinate? We are afraid our animals will get certain diseases. Our cats receive series of shots (commonly called FVRCP vaccinations) by the time they are fully weaned. Deworming schedule for young kittens is the same. After this series, they receive shots annualy unless recommended by a vet. A well ventilated room with adequate temperature and controlled humidity, non-toxic environment in the home, fresh water, and other sanitary conditions keep pets healthy. Good breeding lines also insure the health and quality of our cats and kittens.
