What can you do to make your kitty happier? 😺
Does your kitty weigh too much? - According to recent research conducted by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, in 2017, shows that almost 58% of all cats in the U.S. — roughly 55 million cats — are now overweight or obese.
Does your cat struggle with inter-cat aggression issues, re-directed behaviour towards owners (i.e. biting), inappropriate urination, fear and inappropriate night behaviours?
The solution to all this issues is Shaking Qpet. ❤️️
In other words, if we let our cats ‘hunt’ for their food they become happier and healthier and easier for us to live with.
Why does your kitty need it?
Did you know that in the wild a cat will eat about 7 to 10 juicy mice per day? Each hunt takes them between 10 and 30 minutes and only 1 in 3 hunts results in a mouse (or other prey). If you think of that you start to realize that cats in the wild actually spend a LOT of time thinking about food and trying to get food and moving around to find their food.
Now think about how we feed our cats in home. Majority of cat-owners put out a bowl or a dish of food a couple times a day or just leave out a dish all the time. No wonder our cats are overweight. Instead of spending 5-6 hours+ running around looking for food, it just magically appears every day. But it’s not just the energy that they are not expending, it’s also the mental aspect. Cats are hardwired to think about food all the time because it takes that much thought to be able to feed themselves. We take that need away from them but we cannot turn that switch off in their brain. That’s part of the reason why we hear so often that the cat seems to be always hungry – they are programmed to think about food even when they are not in need of the calories.
But that’s not the end of the story. Not only are they getting food delivered without any thought or effort on their part but they are also a solitary predator species. Again, this is hardwired – kittens orphaned and bottle raised will actually have an even higher prey drive then those raised by their mothers. While hunting can be taught and refined by the queen kittens are literally born with the instinct. By not letting them ‘hunt’ for their food we are preventing them from satisfying an innate emotional need.
