Introducing Your Cat to Young Again Food
Some cats are hesitant to try a new food, while others plunge right in and chow down. If you have the second kind of cat, just feed them the new food exclusively and they’ll be happy. Free feeding, which means leaving a bowl out for them all the time, is the best way to feed Young Again kibble
On the other hand, if your cat is wary of change, we suggest the following strategies. Rather than gradually replacing the old food with the new one—a method better suited to dogs than cats—grind up some of the old food and coat the new food with it. This will make the new food seem more familiar to the cat. (The opposite can work, too, by grinding up the new food and coating the old food with it.) A third method is to grind up some Young Again kibble, put it into their wet food, and slowly increase the amount every day. While you’re doing this, be sure to put a bowl of dry Young Again kibble nearby.
Cats have about a 4-7 day memory span, so it might take that long for them to fully adapt to a new food. It helps to be persistent, consistent and patient during the process. Also, please watch your cat carefully. An average 10-pound healthy cat will eat about a quarter to a third cup of Young Again kibble every day, and pass a stool every 24 to 36 hours.
It is very important that your cat eat every day. Don’t ever try starving a cat to get them to try a new food. Your cat should never go 12 to 18 hours without eating or drinking, because that can cause serious liver problems. If you are not having success with our suggested feeding methods, feel free to contact us.
When you choose Young Again, you’re upgrading your pet’s diet to a high quality, premium cat food. With a little extra care and attention during the transition, the results will soon pay off for you and your happy, well-fed cat.
