How To Feed Your New Tiffany?

What to feed the TiffanyTiffanys, like all felines, eat meat. Never forget that when you’re trying to decide how to feed your new Tiffany. That might be the reason the Tiffany seems like a finicky eater. By giving him non-meat based foods like fruits, vegetables, dairy, nuts, seeds, etc., you can have trouble getting the Tiffany to eat.

Feeding your Tiffany.

Keep in mind Tiffanys share a recent common ancestor with the largest of cats — leopards, tigers and lions — so take that to heart when feeding your Tiffany. You will not see a mature tiger on Animal Planet eating an apple, chewing grass, or drinking milk in the wild. You also would never see a tiger cub in the wild drinking milk from a cow, or any other animal. As absurd as these examples appear, that’s what many owners feed their Tiffanys. Don’t expect your Tiffany at home to be excited if that’s what you try to give him. Tiffanys don’t eat the same way dogs and humans do. As far as their diet is concerned, they are very strict, and as an owner you must always take that into consideration. Tiffanys eat almost entirely proteins and fats in contrast to to omnivores like humans who also eat fruits and vegetables. If we ate like Tiffanys, we’d have heart disease by age 20. They are not at all like people and they are not like little dogs. It’s not uncommon for owners to treat their Tiffanys exactly like they treat their dogs, who can eat a variety of different foods and remain healthy. As a matter of fact, dog food can be deadly to Tiffanys over time because it doesn’t meet their nutritional requirements and it’s often overloaded with too many carbohydrates, which Tiffanys can’t process properly. Many times, when you see an oversized domestic Tiffany it’s because she was forced to eat a diet high in carbohydrates. Too many carbs over an extended period also puts them at risk of diabetes. The long and short of it is that Tiffanys must avoid carbohydrates at all cost.

Pleasing Your Tiffany’s Taste Buds

Be certain any food you purchase for the Tiffany satisifies the requirements outlined by the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). Meeting these minimum requirements ensures that the Tiffany is receiving the necessary nutrition. You can pay no attention to marketing terms like “premium”, ” natural”, ” gourmet”, and “super-premium” which have no set definition. You can ask the vet what type of food (wet or dry) is best for your Tiffany. Once you’ve picked the optimum food, it’s now the time to let your Tiffany give the final say so. If the Tiffany enjoys the food and does not display any gastrointestinal upsets (such as vomiting) afterward, you’ve made a good choice. On the other hand, if your Tiffany doesn’t tolerate the food, you need to be ready to provide a different food. Tiffanys will sometimes prefer to go on a hunger strike instead of eat food they don’t tolerate, and these strikes are truly dangerous. If she ever decides to a hunger strike, the Tiffany runs a high risk of liver failure and death. Don’t switch foods abruptly, either. Make certain you bring in the new food little by little in small amounts over the course of about a week. This makes it easier for your Tiffany to accept and reduces the chances of somach discomfort.

Portion Size, Feeding Time, and Snacks for Tiffanys

How much food does the Tiffany need? The answer may surprise you. For instance, is the Tiffany an indoor or outdoor cat? Has the Tiffany had sterilization surgery? Both of these answers are of utmost importance in determining your Tiffany’s dietary requirements. Your best bet is to consult your Tiffany’s doctor, who will figure out your Tiffanys ideal weight and daily dietary requirements. Take charge and ask your veterinarian about your Tiffany’s weight and food. Once you figure out how much food your Tiffany needs, stick to it. Although it seems like it’s not enough, your Tiffany will get used to it and settle at a healthy weight. For Tiffanys, it’s difficult to lose extra weight once they get overweight. The next step is to set up your Tiffany’s meals. Tiffanys enjoy small servings during the day, so expect to leave bowls out so he can come and graze when 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 snacks, either. Don’t let treats dilute their nutrition. Just like with people, too much salt is a bad thing.
