Cats have a love and hate relationship with everything. Food is no exception! So what’s the best food for your cat? You might get some answers here. Keep reading.
For ages, we’ve been believing that cats love to drink milk. And that was also true. But we can’t say the same anymore. Some cats literally smell the milk and walk away (one of the thousands of mysteries of a cat). The classic cat walk!
They need nutritious food and we ought to provide it. After all, pets are family, sometimes more specifically sons and daughters. And hey, walking all day in pride needs energy, huh! You gotta give that to the cats. Meow
So your cute little buddy who nudges you while you are deep in sleep, and climbs all over you, literally and metaphorically, still deserves to be treated better. I mean, just look at them.
Who wouldn’t fall in love!
