American Shorthair cats are generally healthy and can thrive on a variety of commercial cat food diets. It is important to choose a high-quality cat food that is appropriate for your cat’s life stage (kitten, adult, senior). Look for a cat food that is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.

Cats are obligate carnivores, which means that they require a diet that is rich in animal protein. Look for a cat food that lists a high-quality source of animal protein, such as chicken or fish, as the first ingredient. It is also important to choose a cat food that contains appropriate levels of fat and carbohydrates to support your cat’s overall health.

In addition to commercial cat food, you can also offer your cat small amounts of cooked meat or fish as an occasional treat. Avoid feeding your cat dog food, raw meat, or raw eggs, as these can be harmful to your cat’s health.

It is also important to remember that all cats are individuals and may have specific dietary needs. If you have concerns about your cat’s diet or nutrition, it is always a good idea to consult with your veterinarian.
