What you need to know about keeping cats

Feeding your cat correctly is vitally important to promote its good health and longevity. And, ensuring that the food they eat contains taurine, an essential amino acid, is probably the most important aspect of maintaining heart and eye health.

To care for your cat properly make sure to buy a quality commercial feed available on the South African market. These include brands such as Montego and Ideal, both of which contain this essential amino acid. You can obtain your cat feed from a recognised stockist of both of these brands, such as Assagay Feeds in Kwa-Zulu Natal.

Taurine is important in the metabolism of fats, and both of these brands offer a balanced, delicious and digestible range of both wet and dry cat food.

Apart from feeding your cat correctly, make sure that you take care of its physical needs. This involves regular grooming, keeping it occupied by an array of toys, and providing other essentials such as scratch posts and bedding.

Other cat necessities are:

  • Food and water bowls
  • Litter box and scooper
  • Cat box litter
  • Collar
  • An ID tag with the name of your pet and your phone number
  • Grooming brush
  • Nail clippers

You can purchase all of these items from Assagay Feeds, making your shopping experience easy and pleasurable.
