What to feed the Havana BrownHavana Browns, like all cats, eat meat. Never forget that as you are considering which food your Havana Brown should eat. If you deviate from her natural diet, the Havana Brown will seem like a finicky eater. By giving him non-meat based foods like fruits, vegetables, dairy, nuts, seeds, etc., you may have trouble getting your new Havana Brown to eat.

What should Havana Browns eat?

Don’t ever forget that Havana Browns share much of their dna with the largest of cats — jaguars, tigers and lions — so keep that in mind when feeding your Havana Brown. Never will you see a mature tiger on National Geographic drinking milk, eating an apple, or chewing grass in the wild. Nor would you observe a young panther cub in the wild drinking milk from a cow, or any other animal that wasn’t his mother. As absurd as these examples sound, that’s exactly what many owners feed their Havana Browns. So you shouldn’t expect your Havana Brown at home to be ecstatic if that’s what you try to feed her. Havana Browns don’t eat the same way dogs and humans do. As far as their diet is concerned, they rarely mix it up, and as an owner you must be aware of this. In contrast to how humans eat, Havana Browns need to eat a high percentage of meat for fat and protein. If we ate like Havana Browns, we’d have serious health issues at a young age. They are not at all like people and they are not miniature dogs. Many times, you’ll find people who feed their Havana Browns the same way they feed themselves and the dog, although the Havana Browns diet is much more specific. Since dog food is so full of carbs, a dog’s diet can be deadly to your Havana Brown if fed day in and day out. Havana Browns should not eat carbs because they can’t process them well. Havana Browns get severe weight issues from carbs, which can eventually lead to diabetes. The long and short of it is that Havana Browns must avoid carbohydrates at all cost.
