Feeding the Sokoke Cat: food, quantity, frequency of meals

What to feed the Sokoke, to ensure that it is always strong and healthy? Here are the nutrients that cannot be missing in his diet.

To make sure that our four-legged friend’s life is long and peaceful, it is essential to plan his diet thoroughly. What foods should he eat? How often should we feed him, and at what times of the day? Let’s answer these and other questions to find the perfect diet for the Sokoke cat.

Nutrition of Sokoke: doses and frequency of meals

To plan a truly nutritious diet for your cat, it is essential to know how often to feed the Sokoke, and in what quantity.

Warning: this domestic feline is very greedy and risks accumulating excess weight.

For this, the ideal would be to identify the most suitable doses for the cat with the help of the veterinarian, who will analyze a series of specific parameters such as age, lifestyle and health of the cat to formulate a balanced nutritional plan.

In general, the amount of wetness should be calculated by multiplying each kg of the animal’s body weight by 40 grams.

Once we have the figure, we will have to divide it by 3 in order to obtain the ideal dose of kibble.

How often should you feed your cat? We have two options to choose from. The first is to feed him twice a day, morning and evening.

The second, on the other hand, consists in dividing the daily ration of the pelosetto into small portions, to be given to him regularly throughout the day.

In this way, we will ensure that your energy levels always remain constant.

What to feed the cat

What foods can not miss in the ideal diet of Sokoke?

The essential nutrients for the well-being of the cat are animal and vegetable proteins, fats, fibers, carbohydrates and mineral salts.

Of course, their quantity is diverse. Cats, in fact, are obligate carnivores and need to assimilate mainly meat and fish.

On the contrary, they need very few carbohydrates, which if assimilated in excessive quantities could cause health problems for the animal.

Green light, therefore, to foods such as chicken, beef, rabbit, salmon, tuna and sea bream.

These foods will provide essential substances for the proper functioning of the cat’s nervous system and its metabolism. 

Home or industrial nutrition for Sokoke?

Finally, we just have to answer one last question to identify the truly perfect diet for Sokoke: better a home or industrial diet?

There is no single answer, because the choice depends on our needs.

In the case of a home diet, we will dedicate ourselves to the purchase and preparation of the raw materials to be given to the cat.

It is therefore a method that allows us to choose selected and quality ingredients, controlling each stage of food transformation.

However, it is a long and complex procedure, which if not properly planned with the help of the veterinarian can lead to the development of nutritional deficiencies.

The industrial feeding for Sokoke, on the other hand, provides that the feeds that are commonly found on the shelves of specialized shops are administered to the fact.

This is a much more hasty mode. Attention, however, to the product chosen during the purchase phase: it is essential to look at the ingredients and nutritional table on the back of the package, to make sure of the actual goodness of the selected foods.
