FEEDING AND NUTRITION:


1. FEEDING PLAYS THE KEY ROLE IN A KITTENS HEALTH. THE SCIENCE HAS PROVEN HEALTH OF THE KITTEN IS 95% FOOD AND NUTRITION AND 5% GENETICS. THERE IS A SAYING WE ARE WHAT WE EAT - SAME WITH PETS.

KITTENS BODY IS DESIGNED TO PROCESS HIGH QUALITY RAW PROTEINS OF PREY RAW WITHOUT THERMAL PROCESSING.  
PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO BEFORE MOVING ON TO HAVE IT EXPLAINED BY THE USA LICENSED VET.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. SINCE BRITISH SHORTHAIR BREED IS A RESULT OF SELECTION AND EXPERIMENTS 'CREATED BY PEOPLE' AND IS NOT A NATURALLY EVOLUTIONIZED ANIMAL, THERE ARE CERTAIN IMPREFECTIONS THAT WE HAVE TO DEAL WITH WHEN RAISING AND KEEPING THEM HEALTHY (DO NOT ASK YOUR VET ABOUT IT - IT IS A BREEDER'S JOB TO KNOW AND TO EDUCATE THE NEW OWNERS).

 

WITH THE BRITISH SHORTHAIR IT IS A SENSITIVE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM. THAT'S WHY IT IS VERY IMPORTANT WHAT WE FEED OUR KITTENS WITH.
 


we feed all of our cats RAW diet, and since we do not have our own farm and our own lab, to balance the calcium and phosphorus we add TOP QUALITY (one of the best we have on market these days) DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS and treats. PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANY RANDOM BRAND FROM THE PET STORE AND DO NOT CHANGE KITTENS DIET FOR AT LEAST 30 DAYS AFTER BRINING HIM HOME.
 

SUPPLEMENTS is ANOTHER VERY IMPORTANT PART OF THE PREVENTATIVE CARE. EVEN WITH FEEDING THE TOP QUALITY FOOD THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WILL GET 100% VITAMINS MINERALS AND NUTRIENTS. So we add organic based ones that cat's body naturally eliminates through the urine should any excess happen. 


RAW RECIPE WE MAKE:
 

1 lbs meat no bone (ground beef 93 lean /7% fat)

1 lbs meat with bone (turkey thighs most asian stores have a commercial grade grinder and can grind you the chicken upon a request) if you have no grinder to grind bones you can use dried egg shells minced in a blender (3 oz per 3 pounds portion) 
8 oz chicken hearts
3.5 oz chicken liver (this is needed for digestion)
1 egg

grind and mix keep in freezer for 3 days before feeding make small daily portions and thaw 1 portion every day (about 6 oz)

3. To keep your cat healthy carbs should be avoided in a diet (cats are predators). Read the labels with the ingredients before offering anything to your kitten. Corn, soy, fillers, sugar,fat is not cats food though many commercial brands use it to 'lower' the cost.
 

Grain-free diet is the number one rule, though some grain containing dry food show good results and can be used as an occasional feast, short-term recovery or at time of stress like transition etc, but not the #1 diet. 

Although commercially processed cat food is convenient, it does not provide all the proper diet essentials and contains lots of additions that can be harmful for the sensitive digestive system of British Shorthair cats, therefore we encourage you to feed your kitten with the RAW (pre-frozen) food mostly and add the dry food we recommend (it contains no grains or 5% of oatmeal).

Having access to food all day long keeps cat's system alkaline that lowers their immunity which may easily cause Feline Urogical Syndrome (FUS).

Raw food supplies maximum the nutrients needed for all life stages, so we feed our kitties natural meat  (chicken, beef, lamb, rabbit, turkey, etc).  
We strongly advise to feed pre-frozen products (kept in a freezer for at least 2-3 days)
and strongly suggest NOT TO feed cats raw pork and all kinds of excessive fat containing products FISH IS NOT BRITISH CATS FOOD also.

Cats also enjoy eating egg yolks, liver, gizzards, hearts, kidneys and other internal parts of animals that make an excellent feeding choice for daily meals or snacks. In addition, dairy with live bacteria such as yogurt, cultured milk, sour cream, etc. are offered as well. PLEASE see the example of the MENU below.


please note all the dry food (commercial food) is removed when the homemade mix is offered an hour before and an hour after.
