What to feed the Ukrainian LevkoyUkrainian Levkoys, like all cats, are predators. Keep that in mind when deciding what foods to feed the Ukrainian Levkoy. That might explain why the Ukrainian Levkoy rejects the food you prepare for her. By giving him non-meat based foods like fruits, vegetables, dairy, nuts, seeds, etc., you may have trouble getting the Ukrainian Levkoy to eat.

What do Ukrainian Levkoys eat?

Remember Ukrainian Levkoys are closely related to the largest of cats — tigers, lions,and cougars, etc. — so take that to heart while feeding your Ukrainian Levkoy. Never will you see an adult puma on National Geographic drinking milk, eating an apple, or chewing grass in nature. You also would never see a lion cub in nature drinking milk from a cow, or any other animal that wasn’t the mother. As preposterous as these examples sound, that’s exactly how many owners feed their Ukrainian Levkoys. So you should not act surprised when your Ukrainian Levkoy goes without eating. Ukrainian Levkoys are unlike us and different from dogs. When it comes to nutrition, they are very strict, and as an owner you must realize that. Ukrainian Levkoys take in almost entirely proteins and fats in contrast to to omnivores like humans who also eat fruits and vegetables. If we ate like Ukrainian Levkoys, we’d have heart disease by age 20. Just because they’re a part of your family, does not mean they should eat like you and the dogs. Quite often, you’ll find families who feed their Ukrainian Levkoys the same foods they feed themselves and their dog, even though the Ukrainian Levkoys diet is much more specific. As a matter of fact, dog food is fatal to Ukrainian Levkoys over time because it fails to meet their nutritional needs and it’s often overloaded with too many carbohydrates, which Ukrainian Levkoys can’t digest well. Many times, when you see an overweight domestic Ukrainian Levkoy it’s because he was forced to eat a diet heavy in carbohydrates. This also puts them at risk of diabetes. The Ukrainian Levkoy’s system is not designed for carbohydrates. They are to be avoided.

Satiating Your Ukrainian Levkoy’s Taste Buds

Before you decide on a particular food for your Ukrainian Levkoy make certain it is deemed acceptable by the American Association of Feed Control Officials. That ensures that the food satisfies at least the basic dietary needs of your Ukrainian Levkoy. Pay no attention to marketing “hype” terms like “premium”, ” gourmet”, ” natural”, and “super-premium”, as there is no guideline that defines them. Ask your vet which type of food (wet or dry) is best for your Ukrainian Levkoy. After you’ve selected the best food, it’s now the time to let your Ukrainian Levkoy decide. If your Ukrainian Levkoy eats it with no issues and appears to relish it, it is a fine pick. If the Ukrainian Levkoy doesn’t seem to tolerate it, however, you should go back to the drawing board. If your Ukrainian Levkoy doesn’t tolerate the food you have given him, a harmful hunger strike may be imminent. If he ever decides to stop eating, your Ukrainian Levkoy runs a high risk of liver failure at a minimum and at worst death. Don’t swap foods abruptly, either. Make certain you replace the old food gradually over about a week. This helps prevent your Ukrainian Levkoy from rejecting the new food outright and lessens the risk of upsetting your kitty’s stomach.
