  • You will need to provide fresh, clean water at all times, and wash and refill your cat’s water bowls daily.
  • Treats should be no more than 5-10% of the diet.
  • Many people feed baby food to a cat or kitten who is refusing food or not feeling well  Please read labels carefully: If the baby food contains onion or garlic powder, your pet could be poisoned.
  • Take your pet to your veterinarian if signs of anorexia, diarrhea, vomiting or lethargy continue for more than two days.
