It’s important to feed your cat a balanced diet that meets their nutritional needs, regardless of their exercise routine. If your cat is very active, they may require more calories to maintain their weight and energy levels. In this case, you may need to feed your cat a higher-calorie diet or feed them more frequently. It’s a good idea to consult with your veterinarian or a veterinary nutritionist to determine the best diet for your cat, taking into account their age, weight, and activity level.

In general, cats require a diet that is high in animal protein and fat, and low in carbohydrates. Look for a cat food that lists a high-quality source of animal protein, such as chicken or fish, as the first ingredient. It’s also a good idea to choose a cat food that is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) for the maintenance of adult cats.

In addition to feeding a nutritionally balanced diet, it’s also important to pay attention to portion sizes and make sure you are not overfeeding your cat. Obesity is a common health problem in cats and can lead to a number of serious health issues, including diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis.
