Last week I went out in search of cat food that our increasingly weak Gryphon would enjoy eating. He still had interest in eating but baby food was the only thing he would really eat a lot of. Any human food is not a healthy feeding solution for more than a few days, so I needed to find something Gryphon liked. Even some healthy cat treats would have been nice for him. As I read the labels of various nutritious cat foods, I was shocked to see many had disclaimers about how just that can or bag alone was not nutritionally complete and was only part of a balanced diet. If my cat likes one kind of food and I buy a lot of it, I may not be feeding a well-rounded diet? Uh-oh. Emily became a very finicky eater in her senior years and all of Gryphon's health issues severely limited what we could feed him. I got into the habit of feeding just one kind of food for a very long time. Fortunately, what I had been feeding didn't have a disclaimer about only being part of a balanced diet but suddenly, feeding my cats seems so much more complex than just dumping a healthy food into the dish a few times a day.
Hill's provides a lot of options for feeding your cat that, even when mixed and matched, takes the guesswork out of feeding your cat a balanced diet. The trio of Hill's dry food, wet food and cat treats provide a delicious variety of foods without sacrificing nutrition. Cats have a lot of very complex nutritional needs and, as I have learned the hard way over the years, health issues can further complicate cats dietary needs. It's nice to have a bit of the guesswork taken out of whether or not you're cats are getting all of the nutrients they need. Plus, my cats have always loved treats. They have often been so sweet while begging for a treat. Yet I am often guilty of feeding dog treats to the cats.
