A healthy digestive system is vital for a happy and thriving cat. However, occasional digestive issues like gas, bloating, or diarrhea can disrupt their comfort and well-being. If your cat is experiencing these troubles, you're not alone. Many felines face digestive challenges from time to time.

Causes of Digestive Upset in Cats

  • Dietary Changes: Introducing a new food too quickly can irritate a cat's digestive system.
  • Food Sensitivities: Some cats may have sensitivities to certain ingredients in their food.
  • Hairballs: As cats groom themselves, they ingest fur, which can form hairballs that can be difficult to pass.
  • Stress: Environmental or emotional stress can impact digestion.
  • Parasites: Internal parasites can disrupt gut health and nutrient absorption.

While our premix provides a solid nutritional foundation, some cats may benefit from additional support.

Optagest is a scientifically formulated, clinically tested product designed to provide optimal GI support, settle upset tummies, increase the bioavailability of nutrients in food, and to support good digestion in your cat.

FAQs About Know Better for Cats and Homemade Food

Q: Is homemade cat food healthier than commercial cat food?

A: Homemade food can be very healthy, but it needs to be balanced to ensure your cat receives all the essential nutrients they need, especially calcium and taurine. Know Better for Cats premix simplifies this process.

Q: What are the challenges of homemade cat food?

A: Creating a balanced recipe and ensuring proper food safety with raw ingredients can be challenging. Know Better for Cats premix eliminates this complexity.

Q: How do I know if my cat will like homemade food?

A: Many cats who are picky eaters find homemade food more palatable than commercial foods like kibble. You can introduce Know Better for Cats gradually by mixing it with their current canned food.

Q: Can I use Know Better for Cats Homemade Premix with any type of meat?

A: Yes! Our premix is designed to be used with a variety of raw or cooked lean meat options, offering flexibility in your homemade cat food creations.

Q: How much do I feed my cat?

A: Most adult cats weighing 9-12lbs will need about 1/4lb. (1/2 cup) of food each day. This can be split into 2 servings, morning and evening.

Every cat has an optimum body weight at which it is healthiest and performs best. To determine how much food your cat requires daily, it is important to know that weight. Consult literature on breed standards or your veterinarian for help. If your cat is overweight base your feeding on the optimum weight.

For larger breeds, the following formula will assist you in calculating approximately how much of this food to feed your cat daily:

Your cat's weight in lbs: X 0.4 = daily amount of food in oz.

or

Your cat's weight in kg: X 25 = daily amount of food in grams

For eg. 18lb. Maine Coon x 0.4 = 7.2oz per day.

Please note, this is just a guideline and some cats will require more or less depending on age, activity level and metabolism. For kittens under one year of age, please refer to our Feeding Kittens page for further information.

Q: How much cat food will each pouch of Cat Food Premix make?

A: Know Better for Cats is available in 3 sizes:

  • Trial size 4.8oz - makes 6lbs. of finished food (will feed one adult cat for 3 weeks)
  • 24oz pouch - makes 30lbs. of finished food (will feed one adult cat for 4 months)
  • 5lb pouch - makes 100lbs. of finished food (will feed one adult cat for over one year)

**If you are new to our products, please consider the trial size to start.

Q: What kind of meat do cats prefer?

A: If your cat is new to a raw or cooked homemade diet, it may be best to start off with poultry as their first protein. Chicken and turkey have a milder flavour compared to red meats such as beef, venison or pork.

If you’re feeding raw, the meat should be very fresh and fit for human consumption. If it’s not fresh and is close to the expiry date, it can turn cats off completely. Meats that are close to the expiry date can be used successfully for a cooked cat food.

We usually recommended to start with a ground chicken or turkey, and then offer variety once your cat is used to the new meal plan.
