What do cats eat and other questions about your cat's eating and drinking behaviour
For cats, eating and drinking are just as important as for us humans and even vital. Reason enough to pay a little extra attention to what your cat eats and drinks, but also at what times and how to best feed your cat. Because what do cats eat? How often does a cat eat and what are cats allowed to eat? In any case, a designer cat food bowl is a great item for eating and enjoying both eating and drinking. First of all, we often get the question: "How often does a cat eat?". In principle, cats need two meals a day. For example, you give a portion of kibble in the morning and in the evening a portion of kibble (dry food), or wet food. If you have one cat in the house, your cat can choose whether to eat his bowl at once or always in small snacks spread throughout the day. In any case, your cat will adapt to the regularity in the house. His biological clock will tell him exactly when it's feeding time. We're sure you've noticed this at times when your cat is begging you, or walking with you to the kitchen.
What do cats prefer to eat and what does the ideal cat food bowl look like?
And what are cats allowed to eat? What a cat eats differs from cat to cat, just like people do. Some cats follow a certain diet, but in general cats like to eat dry food: kibble. They contain all the nutrients your cat needs. Feeding wet food is also allowed. These are the well-known square tins with a meat mix, poultry or salmon. They are often real treats for your cat! Cats love meat. And how much does a cat drink on average? Compared to humans, cats drink very little. A general guideline is 50 milliliters of water per kilogram of body weight. So a healthy cat of five kilos drinks about 250 ml of water per day. So always make sure that there is a drinking bowl ready for your cat. By the way, do you give your cat a lot of wet food? Then it's good to know that it already contains 80 percent moisture.

An average cat poops once a day and pees about twice a day. Do you notice that your cat is spraying and do you have problems with the spraying cat?
