The Benefits of #mixedfeeding #Giveaway CAN 19/08


For several weeks my Furbabies have been participating in a mixed feeding pet food program sponsored by Whiskas.

Jesse is a senior and faces senior challenges.  His gums are very sensitive (gingivitis), and he has lost a couple of teeth.  He even has a broken tooth.  Suffice it to say eating isn’t easy for him.

Josie is a teenager and has her own challenges.  Having been a rescue at such a young age, she fears when her next meal will be, so when she eats she does so as if she’ll never be fed again.

Jesse Jr. is a 2 month old rambunctious kitten, with lots of energy to spare.  He too is a very young rescue, and eats everything in sight.  He’s still growing, and he has kitten teeth, and a kitten tummy that we have to be careful with.  He refuses his kitten food, and has joined his new big brother and big sister in partaking in the mixed feeding pet food program.

*Can my kitten eat WHISKAS® Dry Adult Food?

No. Our WHISKAS® Adult Dry Cat Food has been formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for adult cat maintenance only. We have a kitten formula in our dry line (WHISKAS® Kitten with Chicken) that delivers great taste and that is specially formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.*

Both dry and wet food have their benefits.

    Dry food is super convenient, economical, and great for oral care.    Wet food has less calories per gram, encourages water intake, and is easier for seniors and kittens to chew.

If your cats aren’t already on a mixed feeding program, it might take a little while to introduce it to their regular routine; however, once on the mixed feeding you’ll discover that they are happy with the taste, texture, and variety.

 Satiety, humidity, and ease of feeding are my goals in a mixed feeding program.  Taste, and texture meets healthy, and happy … what more could I want for my babies?

All three of my furbabies are very happy with their feeding routine.  Of course, they absolutely love their wet food (I’m guessing it’s because it more closely resembles the food they would naturally choose); however, they happily crunch on their dry kibble too.  I look at it this way:  I love my mashed potatoes but I really enjoy crunchy French fries too!  Isn’t great to be able to have both?  Wouldn’t it get boring to always have the same thing?

  1. I learned that Whiskas has been around since 1958 which is the year my husband was born and my mom graduation high school!

  2. i learned that Whiskas site has a name selector if you are stuck naming your new kitten.and..
    When you go to bed, try leaving some quiet toys around for your little friend to play with or hide treats around the house..(our cats make anything a toy! One especially loves hair ties and pipe cleaners, we find them all over the house in the morning!)

  3. Interesting….I learned that some cats prefer to eat their meals up high! My kitty seems to always like doing the opposite, she takes things that are up high (like on a our window ledge or kitchen table) and brings them down to the ground to eat 🙂
