Just recently I made the huge decision to have my young, 7ish month old female kitten Myrtle neutered. After her first time on heat and her howling all the time and my mate with staying with me who owns a young unneutered male kitten and me knowing I never wanted to breed with my girl I paid up and had it done. I do think it was the best decision for us even though she is a house cat as I didn't want her suffering or the screaming every 2-3 weeks for the rest of her days!
One I thing I didn't know was that her diet needed to change. She was on a mixture of dried and wet food already with a preference of the latter however she is a little piggy and I admit to spoiling her and she was a little on the hefty side before the operation, something which we were both doing something about with less treats and a generally more healthy diet!
However at her check up after the operation it was brought to my attention that now she has been spayed added to the fact she is indeed an indoor cat that her diet really needs to change or shes going to be very fat cat! I was given a large bag of this food to try her on as I thought I simply needed to continue giving her, her kitten food till she was one years old and it turns out now I have been advised to give a diet instead specifically for a neutered cat!
Like I say I was given a bag worth £11.35ish free from my vet that weighs 1.5g (result!). You can buy this food in different sized bags too of course and the reason I was given it free was part of a deal I am in thankfully or I'm not sure I would've shelled out on it because she is so fussy!
The food comes in a resealable white plastic bag a with press zip style opening to the top of it and on the front of it we are clearly told what it is and who it is by and clearly on the front of it that it is for neutered cats then on the back of the bag lots of information is given on it about the food and the ingredients and nutritional benefits and so on as well as feeding guide and contact details for the manufacturer.
The Food Itself:
This food is meant to be all round good for your kitten/cat. Its meant to be kind and to help clean the teeth, to support urinary health and to help to give a healthy coat as well as being easy to digest and help to keep a kittens/cat weight balanced and to not help make them overweight/obese.
The kibbles/biscuits are round in shape and light brown and dried of course to my touch. They are not huge in size and not too big for my young kitten to handle or munch on. To me they smell of cereals and a bit malty with a bit of a chicken sort of fragrance to them though I can't speak for Myrtle of course!
She will eat these. She's never going gonna to be overly struck on dried food but I do give her these occasionally, they sound crunchy though she wont eat much of them and certainly not the recommended amount of them per day so i have to give her a little of something else as well.
My mates cat who is not neutered can't keep his mitts off them though to which I keep having to remove them from him so they must be tasty enough though to be fair he has been brought up on a dried diet.
I will certainly buy these for my girl though they are not suitable for every meal for her!
Available from all good pet shops though do shop about online for better deals if possible first!
