Does your cat love what they eat? Ours do!


Our cats are into their meals so much that they come to us an hour before dinner time. You’d think there was a sale on catnip and they needed to be the first in line before the store opened.

When feeding time finally arrives, the cats hover around their bowls with so much anticipation we can barely fill them with food.

I’m sure it’s not because we starve our cats or our fabulous company so I’m thinking they must really like their food.

Two Main Eating Goals

We’re big on nutrition and want to be sure our cats eat right, even if it costs a bit more. It sure beats paying those vet bills later on. You know what they say about prevention. But we also want their food to taste good. If you can cover these two areas you’ll be sure to have very few troubles getting your cats to eat.

Meals are usually over in a matter of minutes. If one cat finishes before the others they usually take over the bowl of another cat that is still eating. Dax eats so fast sometimes we have to remind him to chew his food. Jade likes to eat by herself and will stand up on her back legs to get to the food faster.

The Cat Food we feed our Cats 

The cats have been eating dry food for the most part but we try to keep a balanced mix of moist and dry food. We get our cat food from the vets. It’s called Hill’s Prescription Diet w/d. They offer many different types of cat food depending on your cat’s nutritional needs.

Start at their home page and look around. If you’re interested in switching your cat’s food, talk to your vet about using Hill’s.
What do you feed your cats? Do you have any trouble getting them to eat?

Here is the Band of Cats gathering around their bowls in hopes of getting fed early and finally chowing down when it’s meal time and the food finally arrives.

Yeah! Time to eat. Of course we have to get the cats out of the way in order to actually put their food in the bowls.
