Transitioning Cats to a Healthier Diet


Last week, Dr. Karen Becker posted an interview with "Two Crazy Cat Ladies" Jae Kennedy and Adrienne Lefebvre.  Here are the highlights--but we loved watching this immensely helpful and entertaining video!  (Alternatively, check out the complete written article/transcript here.)

Story at-a-glance

One of the things Jae and Adrienne focus on is helping parents of cats 10 years and older take important steps to help their kitties stay healthy and happy through middle age and their golden years

They share their experience, tips and tricks on introducing new foods to cats (no matter their age), and transitioning kitties to an entirely different, healthier diet

The ladies also explain why it’s so important to stop free feeding your cat

Adrienne and Jae discuss the most important supplements for cats, especially older ones, and how to use a bit of trickery to get them to accept add-ins at mealtime

 

Ready for spring training?

It's been a long winter, but the first day of spring is less than a week away!  Time to get moving a little more and start melting off those pounds we've all put on during the hibernation months.

Mellow or high-energy, young and old, all animals are healthier with daily exercise.  We found an article on PetPlace that has some excellent suggestions on how to ease your way into "spring training" and keep up the pace for a healthy year!
