Domestic cats most often eat dry food or wet food that is made and purchased commercially. These are the best food choices for a pet cat’s health.
Once pet owners have decided on a brand of cat food for their pet, they must decide how to feed the cat. Some cat owners have decided to stick to a two meals each day routine that is recommended by most cat foods.
However, other cat owners prefer to provide the cat with as much food as they want, which is known as “free-choice feeding” and allows the cat to decide how much food it needs and when. Both food methods are appropriate for cats as long as the free-choice feeding method involves only dry food. Cats that are given unlimited treats or unlimited wet cat food can become overweight and unhealthy.
