An interesting survey called the “Pet Parent Purrception Survey” commissioned by 9Lives is aimed to find out if American cat owners are feeding their cats the most nutritious meals possible. 94 percent of Americans believe that their cats are on a healthy and nutritious diet. However, the survey reveals that many of these cat owners have missed the mark when it comes to good feline nutrition.
Table scraps – they can cause quick weight gain and have very little essential nutrients necessary for your cats.
48 percent of cat owners admitted to feeding their cats table scraps on an average of seven times a month. The interesting finding is that men are more likely to feed table scraps to cats than women.
