Aegean cats eat meat and meat only. Never forget that when you’re trying to decide which food your Aegean cat should eat. If you deviate from this, your Aegean cat may reject your food offerings. You may have a difficult time getting your Aegean cat to eat if you’re giving him food that is not meat or formulated from meat products.
What do Aegean cats eat?
Remember Aegean cats share a recent common ancestor with the largest of felines — tigers, lions,and pumas, etc. — so take that to heart when feeding the Aegean cat. Never will you witness a mature tiger on Animal Planet chewing grass, eating an apple, or drinking milk in his natural habitat. You also would never observe a cougar cub in nature drinking the milk of a cow, or any other animal that wasn’t his mother. As absurd as these examples seem, that’s exactly how many owners feed their Aegean cats. So you shouldn’t expect your Aegean cat at home to be excited if that’s what you try to give make her eat. Aegean cats don’t eat the same way dogs or humans do. As far as their diet is concerned, they are very inflexible, and you must realize that. Aegean cats eat almost entirely fats and proteins in contrast to to omnivores like humans who also get nutrition from fruits and vegetables. A person could end up with a lot of ailments if she ate the Aegean cat’s recommended diet. Even Though they’re a member of the family, does not mean they should eat what you and the dogs eat. Quite often, you’ll find families who feed their Aegean cats the same foods they feed themselves and the dog, although the Aegean cats diet is much more strict. Because dog food is so full of carbs, a dog’s diet can actually be fatal to your Aegean cat if fed consistently. Aegean cats should not eat carbs because they can’t process them well. Aegean cats get severe weight problems from carbohydrates, which can eventually lead to diabetes. The Aegean cat’s digestive system is not designed for carbs. They are to be avoided.

Satisfying Your Aegean cat’s Taste Buds
Be certain any food you buy for the Aegean cat meets the minimum requirements set by the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). Satisfying the requirements guarantees that your Aegean cat is receiving the right food. Pay no attention to marketing “hype” terms like “natural”, ” premium”, ” super-premium”, and “gourmet”, as there is no guideline that defines them. Ask the doctor which type of food (wet or dry) they recommend for your Aegean cat. After you’ve decided on the best food, it’s time to let your Aegean cat decide. If your Aegean cat enjoys the food and doesn’t exhibit any digestive issues (such as diarrhea) later, you’ve chosen well. However, if the Aegean cat doesn’t like the food, you need to be ready to give a different choice. If the Aegean cat doesn’t tolerate the food you have fed him, a dangerous hunger strike may be on the way. If she commits to a hunger strike, the Aegean cat runs an extreme risk of liver failure and death. If you do need to swap foods, replace the old food a little bit at a time, in small quantities over about a week. This makes it easier for your Aegean cat to accept and reduces the chances of somach discomfort.
Portion Size, Feeding Time, and Snacks for Aegean cats
How much do you need to feed your Aegean cat? There are many aspects that determine that answer. For instance, is your Aegean cat a house cat or a yard cat or both? Has the Aegean cat had sterilization surgery? Both affect your Aegean cat’s nutritional requirements. Your best bet is to get a recommendation from the veterinarian, who will help you set your Aegean cat’s ideal weight and daily dietary requirements. Take initiative about asking your doctor about your Aegean cat’s weight and food. Once you learn how much your Aegean cat needs, don’t deviate. It may seem like it’s not enough, but it will keep your Aegean cat at his ideal weight. It’s hard to help overweight Aegean cat lose weight, and it’s easier to keep yours at a healthy size. Once you’ve gotten this info from his veterinarian, it’s time to plan the Aegean cat’s meals. Aegean cats like to eat small servings during the day, so plan to leave food out so he can come and graze whenever hunger strikes. You can give out half in the morning before leaving for work and the other half when you return. Don’t go overboard with treats, either. The more treats they eat, the less room they’ll have for their core dietary requirements.
