Cats need large amounts of proteins, fats and carbohydrates should also be present in their diet, but much less. For them no less than for a person certain important minerals and vitamins. To mimic the wild diet of these animals, which gives them everything they need, you need to give them raw frozen beef meat, boiled lean chicken, green vegetables, dairy products.

The better the feed, the better and more natural ingredients it includes, the more expensive but higher quality product.
On the packaging of food "Whiskas", given the composition, which results in a good veterinary doctors in horror. First, the "by-products of animal origin," it's not meat: fat, bones, joints, heads, beaks and much more, spiced with flavors that cats love this food. As a result, in the "Whiskas" a large amount of fat, but little protein. And the animals are often replaced by vegetable proteins: structure, you can find soy, corn cobs, peanut shells. Secondly, it contains corn gluten, which is harmful to the digestion of animals and causes problems with the gastrointestinal tract. Thirdly, in the "Whiskas" includes preservatives and flavors that long-term use is toxic.

Perhaps, "nature" has a right to exist, if its production is carefully monitored. But it is important to understand that among many other foods is one of the most unwholesome, unbalanced and cheap. In such cases, the low price speaks volumes about the quality, as good fresh meat is expensive.
Cats are different: some have a digestive system copes with low-quality forages and improper natural diet, others need to be fed strictly by the rules and carefully monitor their diet. This explains the many cases where pet owners feed their "Whiskas" throughout life, and cats live long, not suffer and feel fine. Cat food not poison, some Pets are really handling it well and getting even feeding from the table or independently producing their own food, they make up for the lack of certain substances.

Advice 4: Which memory from cats
Cat's brain is not fully understood. Scientists claim that the view that cats have a very short memory, is fundamentally wrong. Cats very well remember the necessary information and skillfully manipulate people, playing a lack of understanding when it suits them.
Excellent memory, excellent reflexes
Cats live next to the person throughout the history of civilization, there is therefore nothing surprising in the fact that they were able to adapt to the people and to learn to change their behavior depending on circumstances. At home fluffy favourites is a wonderful memory and excellent reflexes.

Experiments with cats and dogs
To determine the duration of the cat's memory and compare it with the memory of other animals, scientists have conducted a series of experiments. Turning a few boxes, they hid under one of them food. The box, which was food, was equipped with a lighted lamp. This box showed dogs and cats, convinced that the animals learned the information, and took them out of the room.
Then the animals began to bring into the room, maintaining a specific time interval. It turned out that the dogs remembered where the food for five minutes. In memory of cats valuable information was kept for 16 hours, and this time period is slightly less than that of highly developed primates – orangutans.
It is impossible to deny cats and they have a creative thought. To confirm the creative abilities of the scientists picked up a group of cats and taught them to move the boxes on wheels. Then high up to the ceiling hung a piece of meat. The distance to the meat was so great that animals were not able to get.
A little jump, cats began to seek a way out of the situation. One of the cats thought to push a box on wheels, to climb on it and get a piece of meat. Her companions instantly picked up the idea and also began to use boxes in order to achieve your goal. The results of these experiments indicate that cats do not so much differ in the level of intelligence on textbook primates, taking in hands a stick and this stick knocking the fruit from the tree.
