Cats’ preference for certain feeding times

Do you ever wonder why your feline friend seems to have a strict schedule when it comes to meal times? Cats are creatures of habit, and their preference for certain feeding times is deeply ingrained in their natural instincts.

In the wild, cats are solitary hunters and they rely on their hunting skills to catch prey. This means that they are most active during dawn and dusk, also known as crepuscular times. So, it’s no surprise that your domestic cat may exhibit similar behavior when it comes to meal times.

By feeding your cat at consistent times each day, you are not only satisfying their natural instincts, but you are also providing them with a sense of security and routine. This can help reduce stress and anxiety in your feline companion, leading to a happier and healthier cat overall.

So, next time your cat reminds you that it’s meal time, remember that it’s not just about the food – it’s about fulfilling their instinctual needs and strengthening the bond between you and your beloved pet.
