Healthy diet for growth of Siamese kittens

       During the growth of Siamese kittens, diet is very important. Reasonable nutrition can make Siamese cats less sick, but not too fat. Siamese kittens are not the fatter the better. Keeping a reasonable proportion of Siamese kittens is another standard of healthy diet.

       1¡¢ The birth of Siamese kittens

       It is very important for newborn Siamese cats to eat colostrum as soon as possible! Because the body can not produce antibodies after birth, the antibodies of female cats can be secreted through colostrum, and the intestinal tract of newborn cats can easily absorb the antibodies in colostrum, so as to obtain passive immunity, which is very important to protect the health of young cats. It is better to lactate within 24 hours after birth. If the time is prolonged, the absorption rate of antibody in the intestines of young cats will decrease.

       The owner had better fix the weak Siamese kittens on the nipples with more milk, or take turns suckling, let the weak eat first, so as to make the whole litter of kittens grow evenly. When you open your eyes, you should avoid strong light. At the same time, keep warm for newborn Siamese cats. Especially in winter, low temperature or large temperature difference between day and night is one of the main causes of death of newborn cats. Newborn kittens always defecate in their nests. At this time, the owners should pay special attention to the hygiene in the nest, wash, change and disinfect frequently to ensure the cleanness of the litter, so as to promote the healthy growth of the kittens.

       2¡¢ Weaning of Siamese kittens

       Owners can start to feed Siamese kittens 4 to 5 weeks after their birth, so that they can prepare for weaning in the future. When the kitten reaches 7 to 8 weeks, and has the ability to live independently, it can be considered weaning. In fact, most female cats don’t need their owners to help them wean their kittens, because the instinct of animals will make them wean their kittens automatically. That is to say, at a certain time, Siamese cats will refuse to breast feed their kittens and press their nipples under their abdomen or drive away the kittens who want to eat milk. But there will be some special cases of female cats, they will allow the kittens to feed, even when it is time to wean the kittens. At this time, the owner will have to wean the kitten artificially, because weaning too late will not only affect the growth and development of the kitten, but also affect the health of the female cat. Therefore, it is beneficial to the health of Siamese kittens and female cats to seize the opportunity and wean them at the right time. Artificial weaning can adopt the method of mother and child isolation.

       In order to reduce the pressure of weaning cats, we can reduce the pressure of weaning cats. In other words, on the first day after weaning, the kitten was not fed to the female cat, the second day was fed with 1 / 4 of the normal diet, and the third day was changed to 1 / 2 of the normal diet until the fifth day when the normal feeding amount was restored.

       3¡¢ Watershed for growth of Siamese kittens

       1. The rapid growth period of Siamese kittens: 2 months to 6 months

       After weaning, the kittens enter the rapid growth period, which lasts until the kittens reach the age of 6 months. During this period, kittens need high-quality food with balanced nutrition and high protein and calories to supply various nutrients and energy needed for rapid growth. In terms of the energy required per unit weight, fast-growing kittens need twice as much energy as adult cats; however, they have small mouths, small teeth and small stomachs, so they can’t eat and digest enough food in one meal. Therefore, from weaning to six months old, kittens must eat at least three meals a day. Because kittens need a lot of nutrition and heat energy, they must eat high-quality Kitten Food with special formula. This kind of high-quality Kitten Food is characterized by meat as the main raw material, and it is very easy to digest and contains a lot of nutrients, which can meet the special nutritional needs of young cats.

       2. Rapid maturation period of Siamese kittens: from 6 months to 12 months

       When the young cats reach the size similar to adult cats after rapid growth period, their nutritional requirements are different. Cats aged six months or older begin to slow down and have a slight decrease in activity. At this time, they eat more food per meal, so they can reduce the number of meals per day. Although Siamese cats are very similar to adult cats, they still grow up. Many cat owners will give their cats different foods when they reach sexual maturity; in fact, cats like to eat high-quality dry cat food; at this time, we can add a little nutritious canned cat food to the dry cat food to meet their different nutritional requirements due to their slow growth.

       3. Siamese kittens after 12 months of age: from Kitten Food to cat food

       When Siamese cats reach one year old, they need to eat adult cat food specially formulated for adult cats; adult cats no longer need a lot of heat and nutrients provided by Kitten Food. Remember to follow the same rule when changing pet food: change it gradually within 5-7 days. During this period of diet change, we should pay special attention to monitor the body weight and adjust the feeding amount according to the weight of the cat at any time. Most Siamese cats eat a certain amount of food according to their own heat requirements, so they can be fed by any method. However, if the cat only moves indoors, it may cause overweight due to the small amount of activity; therefore, the method of quantitative feeding twice a day can be adopted to avoid the Siamese cat being too fat.

       In the growing process of Siamese kittens, there is an important problem of adoption. Some Siamese kittens were adopted when they were very young. Sometimes it is difficult to feed Siamese kittens before they are weaned. Therefore, to purchase or adopt Siamese kittens, it is most appropriate to choose weaned kittens as far as possible and to eat some Kitten Food directly.

How to raise Siamese kittens

       Siamese kittens of 2 to 5 months old are in the growing stage. More calories are necessary for fast growing kittens.

       A cat weighing 1 kg at 3-4 months after birth needs 130-250 calories per day, 100 calories after six months, and 80 calories for adult cats. In terms of nutrients, cats are basically carnivores, so they need more animal protein.

       In addition, if calcium intake is insufficient, it will lead to incomplete growth of bones, teeth and claws; when taurine is insufficient, it will cause blindness or heart muscle disease; and when vitamin A is insufficient, it will also cause visual impairment or skin condition deterioration, so we can consider giving more of these nutrients. The calcium requirement of young cats is 40% higher than that of adult cats.

       Because the development of young cats needs these kinds of nutrients, if you only feed cat meat, there will be malnutrition, but if you give the cat too much vitamin, it will cause poisoning symptoms. In the past, many cats were fed with leftovers, but at that time, cats could go out of the house to catch some small animals to supplement the problem of insufficient nutrition.

       Today’s cats are kept indoors, so cat owners should pay special attention to nutrition. If there is no correct nutrition related knowledge, it is better not to do the cat’s food by themselves. It is a better way to feed cats to feed on the cat feed produced by factories. It is suggested that cat owners should choose different feeds to feed their cats according to their life cycle (infancy, adulthood, pregnancy, etc.).

       Finally, birch net also said that although the young cats eat a lot during the development stage, they basically control the amount of food they eat. For kittens, as long as they are willing to eat, it doesn’t matter how many meals they feed a day. There is no need to limit the number of times a day.

Classification of Siamese cats and introduction of Siamese cats

       Siamese cats are native to Thailand (hence Siam). More than 200 years ago, this precious cat was raised only in Thailand’s royal palaces and monasteries. It is a noble who stays at home.

       When the British Consul in Bangkok left office in 1884, he brought the Siamese cat, one of the gifts of the kingdom of Thailand, back to England, which was immediately valued by many cat lovers in Britain. The following year, the cat appeared at the Crystal Palace cat fair outside London, causing a shock. It was introduced to America in 1920 and spread all over the world. It was welcomed by cat lovers all over the world. This issue of Borch network to bring you the introduction of cat species

       Variety classification

       The following four coat colors are recognized by CFA in the United States:

       Seal key color: the traditional color of Siamese cats, first appeared in Europe in 1880s. The capillaries are short and smooth, close to the body, relatively early maturity, but they can only mate and bear when they are older.

       Blue accent: one of the traditional Siamese cats, one of the most popular breeds since the 1930s. It is said to be the most tender and affectionate of Siamese cats.

       Chocolate key color: developed from Siamese cat with seal key color, but it was only allowed to participate in the exhibition in 1950. Kittens are almost pure white, and only when they are about one year old can they completely grow chocolate spots. The developed kittens tend to have darker color in adulthood.

       Lavender accent: it first appeared at an exhibition in England in 1896, when it was eliminated because the key color was “not blue enough”. It is one of the four typical Siamese cats.

       There are 30 other coat colors recognized by GCCF, such as:

       Red key color: originally known as “orange key color cat”, it was first exhibited in Britain in 1934. It was disputed because of its different coat color from traditional Siamese cat. This kind of cat is produced by mating with the red spotted Persian cat.

       Cream key color: like red key color, it is a new variety with fine color, also known as “cheese color key color” in foreign countries.

       Seal hawksbill: this kind of cat has dark color lines on its body before 1930s, which has been basically eliminated. It is closely related to Siamese cat with red key color. The voice of Siamese cat is louder than other Siamese cats. It is a natural loud voice.

       Blue hawksbill: the hawksbill pattern is obtained by mating with hawksbill short haired cats. After screening, it retains the Somatotype Characteristics of Siamese cats. Like other hawksbill cats, only females.

       Chocolate hawksbill: in North America, some registries think they are short haired cats with key colors, while in the UK, they are included in Siamese cats. But they have been approved.

       Red tiger spot: when Siamese cats were introduced into Europe, people knew that this breed had a variety of key colors of tiger spots. In 1902, there was a description of the first Siamese cat with tiger spot key color, which made it famous in the world. They were known as “shadow key color Siamese cat” in the early stage, and later called “Bobcat key color Siamese cat”. It was only in 1966 that Britain officially called “Siamese cat with red tiger spot”.

       Precious species

       Diamond eye Siamese cat: Diamond eye Siamese cat is a rare breed among Siamese cats. Its value lies in two different color cat eyes. Against the pure white fur color, it looks like a diamond, shining in the dark.

       The royal family of Thailand has a long history with diamond eyed Siamese cats. In the period of Rama V about 150 years ago, there were dozens of diamond eyed Siamese cats in the imperial palace. Because diamond eyed Siamese cats were rare and expensive, the Thai government stipulated that they could only be kept by the royal family.

       At present, there are only about 100 diamond eyed Siamese cats near Bangkok. Some of them are placed in Dushi zoo for tourists to watch, which shows their value.
