Many people who have lots of cats come to us with problems during feeding. Main problem is that the cats are very aggressive toward one another and they sometimes even end up brawling it out, despite every cat having a bowl of their own, and plenty of food to go around. What many people don’t know is that cats are not social eaters, and that’s why you have problems during feeding.
If you have lots of cats and you notice that they don’t exactly play nice at the feeding station, then you really ought to think about spacing out the cats feeding stations. It’s not enough to just have separate bowls. You also need to put some distance between the feeding grounds, like opposite sides of the room.
It’s not natural for cats to eat in a social setting, and if you force them to eat this way with your bowl placements, then you’re going to have problems. Cats will be under stress, their natural instincts will kick in and they will start misbehaving. That is why you need to make sure that the cats are not close together when they eat. Try it if you have problems with cats during feeding and see how it goes.
Many people seem to have this idea that cats are picky eaters, and after getting complaints from people who reported that their cats don’t want to eat practically any of the cat food variants that they have been giving to their pets, we’ve asked around what exactly the problem is. Turns out that people give cats a bowl of cat food, cat takes a few bites and then walks away, and then people are left thinking that the cat food isn’t good. That’s not true at all.
As we are regularly asked this questions we thought that it would be a good idea to write a blog post about it, so that we cover this question once and for all. So what kind of cat breeds are great for first time cat owners. Answer to that question will vary from person to person, and there’s no one cat breed that is the correct answer. Even the Exotic Catz team will have different answers, and today you’re going to hear my recommendation, and that is the Maine Coon.
Hypoallergenic cat breeds do exist and as someone who has known people who suffer from cat allergies they do help out manage allergies, at least to some extent. As with many things in life, there is a twist however and depending on how bad your allergies are, getting a hypoallergenic cat might not help manage the symptoms at all.
