Feeding a cat
Nutrition is an essential thing on the list of every healthy pet. The same is with cats. You need to feed it correctly, in order to provide it all the necessary nutrients its body needs for good, healthy and normal development. First of all, cats are obligate carnivores. They didn’t change their eating habits for millenniums and they still need meat as their basic food. Proteins from meat are essential for their health.

There are various good products of dry, wet, canned or vacuumed food for your feline.

Dry food is usually recommended to take up the most of felines’ menu, but you can sometimes give it some good wet food products as well.
When it comes to homemade food, it can be good, as well. Carefully select viands, meat in particular, and make sure it is properly made.

Exotic juicy pineapples for cats?
When it comes to fruits, there has been really a lot of discussion over the matter. Some experts say cats don’t even have the ability of sensing sweetness, so fruit is not particularly alluring to them at all. Some recent studies claim cats actually do have some sweetness receptors, so they can taste it. Whatever the real truth may be, fruit is not cats’ food. While cats can benefit from small amounts of fruits once in a while, fruits are not necessary for them and they won’t suffer the lack of it. Human snacks might be enjoyable, but are also unnecessary to a cat’s diet. They should stay away from popcorn, however.
You might think some healthy, juicy pineapple could benefit your cat, just as it benefits you. Well, cats are carnivores and they don’t really need a bunch of nutrients coming from pineaples.Their organisms are meant to process meat food and use nutrients from it, while being unable to utilize nutrients from fruits. Pineapples are not poisonous for cats and in very small amounts they can promote their digestion and aid if your cat suffers from constipation.
On the other hand, too much of it will most certainly just get your cat diarrhea. It can irritate its belly and make it feel bad. In addition, pineapples contain sugar, just as any other fruit. Cats’ bodies cannot digest it the way humans can, so they don’t naturally crave for sugary food. Stay away from canned pineapples and any pineapple products that contain added sugars or other ingredients. Those are all just bad for your pet.
So, small, occasional amounts of pineapples are fine for your cat. Cucumbers are also good. You can use it to help your cat’s digestion, if it suffers from constipation, but never use it as a regular food or a regular treat. It might be your cat actually won’t even like to taste it at all. Cats are not likely to eat any food they don’t consider beneficial or tasteful.
