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, which are the best times for hunting. As a result, domestic cats have retained this behavior and often prefer to eat at similar times each day. If you notice that your cat starts meowing or pacing around the kitchen at a specific time, it’s likely because they have associated that time with being fed. Cats are creatures of routine, and any disruption to their feeding schedule can cause stress and anxiety. To ensure that your cat is happy and content, try to stick to a consistent feeding schedule. This will not only keep your cat satisfied, but it will also help to strengthen the bond between you and your feline companion. Remember, a well-fed and happy cat is a healthy cat!
