No matter how well you look after your cat when they are indoors, you really have very little idea of exactly what they are getting up to outdoors. Therefore, it can be hard to know not only if they are eating things that could be bad for them, but also if they are actually getting the right amount of exercise to keep them as healthy as possible.
When trying to keep your cat healthy, it is therefore important that you offer them just the right amount of food and indeed treats at home so they do not go out hungry and try to eat every scrap of food they see. The right cat food will not only ensure that they do not go foraging for scraps, but also that they have the right balanced diet to keep them as healthy as possible too.
However, too much cat food can be equally as bad. Not only is it likely to mean they end up just being hungrier in general, but too much food will also lead to excessive weight and in turn numerous health problems from diabetes through to depression.
However, cat kibble and treats aside, there will be other things you will need to do to check and indeed to ensure the health of your cat. Regular checkups at the vets will be very important, but it will also simply be important to pay attention to their behaviour. Changes in the way your cat acts or even tries to communicate may show that they are not as healthy as they might seem on the surface.
Cats are notorious for trying to hide illnesses and maladies. Therefore, the right cat kibble and treats along with a keen eye on their behaviour will always be important if you want to be sure they are as healthy as possible.
