British Shorthair cats are very convenient in maintenance and do not deliver to their owners unnecessary hassle. Short hair does not require careful care, frequent washing and combing. Only in the molting period (about twice a year) they should be regularly combed. We recommend doing this procedure with moist hands, without using a brush. Cats should have adequate exercise to maintain good health and appearance. You must involve a cat in mobile games and do this every day, so that it becomes a habit.
An important condition for the good health of your cat is a proper nutrition. The main thing is to choose a well-balanced diet. The composition and quantity of food depends on age. The younger kittens must be fed 4-5 times a day. They, in contrast to adult animals, tend to eat food slowly throughout the day. Adult cats eat 2-3 times a day.
Cats are true predators, so they prefer to eat high-protein food, such as meat (beef, chicken, etc). You also can give dairy products (yogurt, cottage cheese, and cheese) to a kitten (up to one year), pregnant and lactating cats. Fresh water should be available to the cat all the time. In the period of active coat shedding vitamins should be added to their diet, especially the group "B". Ideal is a mixed feed ration: 1/3 of the daily ration is meat, 1/3 ? canned food, 1/3 - dry food.
The natural, organic homemade food includes following products, providing a balanced diet:
Cats should be fed at least 2-3 times a day.
Selecting canned and dry food you should give a preference to only the professional class ("premium" or "super premium").
