My family and I always had cats when I was growing up. All of our cats have been…unique lol. Speedy had 7 toes on one foot and loved dressing up in doll clothes and getting pushed around the cul de sac in a stroller, Milo had a crooked tail, and Smelly Rat (yeah, I know, don’t ask) had a crazy head twitch that freaked out more than one house guest haha. All of our cats were different breeds and had different dietary needs, but for as long as I can remember, Purina® was always our #1 cat food choice. Now I love giving it to my kitty as part of her healthy cat-care routine!

Healthy Cat-Care Routine

My current cat, Nora, is the pickiest eater ever. She is so stubborn and literally won’t eat unless I get her the best of the best cat food. She also has trouble with a sensitive stomach and hair balls. She’s a Persian-Himalayan mix, so she has long hair and gets hair balls pretty easily. I could never figure out what was causing her to throw up so much, and switched around her diet a lot to try and figure it out. I finally found the best healthy cat-care routine for her with Purina® Pro Plan® dry and wet cat food!

Step 1 – Grooming

Nora’s healthy cat-care routine starts with her grooming. Since she has such long, thick fur, I tend to keep her shaved. It’s so funny, I’m convinced she actually loves going to the groomers lol. Every time she comes home, she walks around all prissy and I swear she checks herself out in the mirror! Since she actually has her long fur right now, I have to make sure I keep her brushed. Brushing really helps with the hair balls, as does feeding her a balanced diet!

Step 2 – Diet

Since Nora’s a picky eater, I’ve tried a lot of different cat food brands. She really seems to enjoy the Purina® Pro Plan® True Nature Cat Food, and I love that it’s packed with a high-protein formula that helps keep her muscles lean and strong, and gives her lots of energy! She’s getting older and starting to slow down, and this formula is great for keeping her spry!

I also like to treat Nora with a good wet cat food every so often. Persian’s are susceptible to developing kidney issues, so feeding her wet cat food helps her get lots of liquids down. Plus, it’s a little treat for her (anyone else’s cat come running when they hear the can opener?? LOL). Purina® Pro Plan® wet (and dry!) cat food even comes in grain-free options as well! Nora literally scarfs this down as soon as I open it, she loves it that much! As part of her healthy cat-care routine, I usually give her half a can every night with dinner 🙂

    I don’t have cats. We’re a dog family, lol. These look like great tips though! And your cat is cute.

    Our cat is really picky about her food as well. You should try your local Lidl store. Our cat loves their food, just make sure you get the “Premium” brand, Purina. She has been a very purry kitty since we changed her food.

    Also it is quite a bargain!
