Many owners have cats, but they don’t know about cats. As we all know, the food for young cats is different from that for adult cats, but many owners are not sure when to replace them with cat food. Is it OK after the cats are in estrus? Now let’s discuss how big a cat is, and when can a cat eat cat food?
1¡¢ Age conversion of cats
Generally speaking, one year old cat is equivalent to seven years old, which is the simplest way to calculate the age of a cat. Of course, there are some more accurate calculation methods, which can accurately divide the age of a cat. Generally, this classification method is more complicated. This is true for most cats, but it can’t be calculated for some purebred cats, because each cat has different sexual maturity age and life expectancy. If you want to know, you can check it by breed.
2¡¢ How old is a cat?
Generally speaking, a cat is considered to be a mature cat after 12 months, while a cat may be in estrus after about six months, but it can not be mated at this time. At this time, the cat’s body has not yet fully developed and has not reached the state of pregnancy and birth. When the cat is in estrus for the second time, the owner can consider mating for the cat.
3¡¢ How old can a cat eat?
It is an excellent owner’s job to change the cat food in time. Generally speaking, the young cat food is not suitable for the adult cat. The main reason is that the energy value of the young cat food is high, and the adult cat food will lead to obesity and other symptoms. Each kind of cat food has different definition for the time of changing into cat food, but generally, it takes 12 months as the dividing line. Eat the baby cat food from January to December, and start eating it after 12 months It should be noted that even cat food of the same brand may cause discomfort to the cat when it is replaced. Therefore, there should be a buffer time when changing food.
Early replacement of cat food will have a certain impact on the development of the cat. The owner should try to replace the cat food after the cat has reached 12 months. If you want to sterilize the cat, this is also a good time. After the first estrus, the cat’s body condition is stable, and then the sterilization operation can be carried out.
