Choosing a food for your new cat is important – if you know what they were eating before you got them, you should slowly switch over – see formula below.  If not, be aware that food changes can cause diarrhea and vomiting temporarily but should resolve within a few days.

Cheap food ends up being very expensive in medical bills later.  You can easily Google “is (name of cat food) good cat food”.  Look for review sites that aren’t owned by cat food companies.  Many cheap foods are the equivalent of feeding your cat fast food every day.  

Provide either filtered water or filtered water fountains to reduce the chance of your cat getting urinary crystals which is painful and expensive if vet visits are required.  This condition may require surgery.  

Switching food: For every 1 cup of fod, you normally feed your cat, reduce that to 3/4. Add 1/4 of the new food into the old food. Continue this ratio for 2 to 3 days. Over the next week or so, increase the ratio to 1/2 & 1/2 of each type of food. After a week and 1/2 to 2 weeks, you should be able to switch completely over to the new food.
