Is Your CH Cat A Voracious Eater?
A few weeks back, Jona asked a great question on Facebook: Do our CH cats have voracious appetites?
She said she was wondering because her CH kitten, Cello, can eat a great deal of food and always wants more. Others chimed in and soon at least seven other CH cat parents had shared that their CH cats also have voracious appetites.
Here’s what a few of them shared:
Linda Green: yup mine sure does! burns alotta calories to work so hard at trying to get from point A to point B…not to mention doing just about anything! kittens are growing at a rapid pace too…
Tam Mapes: our up eats a lot. she slowed down a little after spaying but has increased again since she got her companion kitten.
Patty LaQuay: They told me at BF it’s because she uses so much energy to get herself around & she plays a lot, plus she’s still a growing girl.
Tina Rempel: Elf needs a lot of energy to get around, it does seem he eats more than my other cat while staying a nice healthy lean weight.
Michelle Micklewright Canzano: Oliver eats a lot. Because of his tremors and his extra effort to get around I think he burns it up quickly.
Deb Martin: Mine eats more then me! I think because a lot of energy is used flipping around. She is all muscle.
Georgia A Moshier: Pippin is a little piggy and he’s quite possessive of his food. One morning he carried a whole chunk of canned food to the living room, far away from his brothers and sister. Oh, and if he wants more he lets me know by holding his paw straight out and banging on the dish! He cracks me up.
Jona Jacobson: I figured it’s the calorie burn from all the shaking! And, of course, the ever-enthusiastic litter shoveling! Sometimes up to 20-minutes of intense cardio… I should be so dedicated! LOL
Granted part of their voracious appetites may be due to the fact that they’re growing kittens, but it also makes sense to me that they burn more calories than a “normal” cat since they work so much harder at getting around.
