A month ago, I introduced my cat Pepper to mixed feeding. Instead of feeding him one or the other, we let Pepper have both wet and dry food every day. After learning about the health and nutritional benefits that mixed feeding offers, the decision was a no-brainer, and of course, Pepper was happy about the variety of flavours and textures.
Getting started was easy – in addition to wet food twice a day, we added a small bowl of dry food at night. We also switched to Whiskas Perfect Portions wet cat food, which helped us make sure that Pepper’s food is always fresh. Perfect Portions was a great choice for us, since the main ingredient is always a protein like fish, chicken, or beef, and the packs are super convenient to use.
We hoped that mixed feeding and Perfect Portions would help Pepper lose a bit of excess weight, and things were going great for the first few weeks…until we went on vacation. Two weeks later, we came back to find a much plumper Pepper, all thanks to le bf’s mom spoiling him with “all you can eat” buffet of food. Despite this little setback, I’m sure that we’ll get Pepper back on track by using the adorable measuring cup I picked up for dry food, and Perfect Portions wet food. And thanks to mixed feeding, I know he’ll be getting the best nutrition possible along the way. And because Pepper is a generous cat, we partnered up with Whiskas to give away one amazing mixed feeding care package, full of delicious food and toys for your furry best friend.
