It's hard to get a cat to drink water, so we provide them fancy dishes with circulating fountain water that are intended to be music to their ears. But Tiki Cat has another idea: include more liquids in their foods.
Water is great for your cat and running water either from a fountain or a sink should appeal to your cat, but it doesn't always, and cats can get easily dehydrated if they don't drink. Signs of dehydration include "dry gums, listlessness, refusal to eat, or another health problem such as vomiting, diarrhea, fever, trauma, heatstroke, diabetes, and other illnesses." (PedMD)
One way to test for dehydration is to gather a pinch of skin behind your cat's neck between your thumb and forefinger. Hold it for just a few seconds and then release it. It should bounce back immediately. If not, your cat is experiencing dehydration. Visit PetMD to learn more about symptoms.
Hopefully, you can keep your kitty from experiencing dehydration, which can occur more often in hot weather or when your cat does not have access to water or other liquid. Tasting a lot better than water, Tiki Cat Broths are made with the foods cats love: beef, chicken, salmon, tuna, and duck and chicken. Tiki Cat uses high quality proteins in all of its pet foods, and the Tiki Cat Broths are no exception. For example, Tiki Cat Fish Broth is made with fish broth, tuna, fish extract, and the thickeners guar gum and xanthan gum.
You can use the Tiki Cat Broths as a treat for your cat or as a topper over wet or dry cat food. They come in single serving sizes of 1.3 ounces, so they are too small for a whole meal, but are perfect to supplement your cat's regular diet. There are 12 pouches in an order and you can purchase them by flavor or in a mix of flavors.
That's the buzz for today!
