Feeding your cat: the basics
Firstly, cats prefer a quiet place to eat, where they won’t be disturbed. Also, twice a day, at the same time of the day.
When you choose a bowl, best is a metal or ceramic dish with a rubber bottom, which doesn’t move around too easily. Otherwise, your cat may play and overturn the bowl, leading to spillage and a little irritation. There should always be a second bowl filled daily with fresh water.
When the food is ready, make a sound, this could be tapping the bowl, shaking the bag, or calling your cat’s name. That becomes their dinner bell!
