Daisy’s plan for the perfect Cat Health Month celebration

Daisy Cat Health1

February is National Cat Health Month! We cats might have gotten a little bit cheated, on account of there are usually only 28 days in February. At least we get an extra day this year. We can still make the most of our special month, which is meant to focus on feline health and wellness. I expect to get some balloons, extra treats and a basketful of new toys to kick off this celebration. Oh, and guess what? I turn TWELVE on February 10th. But since they didn’t name this National Daisy’s Birthday Month, I will stick to the subject of cat health.

There are many things your mom or dad can do to help you stay healthy, like regular veterinary exams, dental care, frequent grooming, and some good play-time. But today I want to focus on nutrition. As you may or may not know, I had bladder stones when I was much younger. Ever since then, I switched to eating canned food. Did you know that our ancestors were desert-dwellers? Cats do not naturally have a very high thirst drive, and we were designed to get most of our water from the food we eat.

Unfortunately, dry food only has around 10% water while canned foods are closer to around 75% water. It is true that cats on a dry-food only diet will drink more water, but still their water intake will usually be less than a cat who eats canned food. Plus, canned food tastes extra delicious!

This Halo Spot’s Stew is one of my favorites. Um, you aren’t going to take this, right? Because this particular food is MINE. I recommend you take my advice, but never take my food. Thank you.

And now, I will take my own advice and have a little healthy snack. Harley, get your own food!

ps: Only 3 more years until I can get my Learner’s Permit.

    Thanks so much!

  11. Great advice, as always, Daisy. Richard only eats wet food but he does occasionally get grain-free crunchy treats. I think he’d eat the containers his food comes in if I let him.

    Have a fantastic birthday tomorrow!

    Richard reminds me of somecat I know well… (side-eye look at Harley).

  14. Daisy the Curly CatFebruary 9, 2015 at 12:44 pm

    Ah, thanks so much! Maybe I WILL get a new car, you never know (but not a Thunderberd…)

  15. Happy birthday, Daisy! I agree, we cats got cheated because February is so short – humans should be focusing on our health year-round, anyway!

  16. Happy Birthday, Daisy!
    Mom must be feeding you the right stuff because you look very young and healthy.
    My kitties think that food looks pretty yummy. Don’t worry, we’ll get our own!

  17. We would never take your food, although it sounds extra delicious. Happy Birthday!!!!
