Dietary Requirements of Burmese Cats
Burmese cats are carnivores and they require a diet that is dominated by meat.
The meat should be from animals sources.
You should buy cat food that provides your Burmese with the nutrients it needs.
Don’t forget water!
Cats need to stay hydrated.
You should always provide your cat with a fresh bowl of water every day.
Burmese cats need:
- Fatty Acids
- Amino acids like arginine and Taurine
- Protein from fish or meat
Can Burmese Cats Eat Onions?
Garlic, onions, shallots, and scallions should not be fed to cats.
Onions damage the red blood cells of your Burmese and may cause them to suffer from blood disorders such as anemia.
Exposure to concentrated forms of onions such as onion soup mix or garlic soup mix can be very hazardous for your Burmese.
If after accidentally eating an onion, your cat showcases any of the following symptoms then take the poor creature to the vet as soon as you can.
Can Burmese Cats Eat Dog Food?
Dog food is not really super toxic for your Burmese, but it is not good either.
Dog food does not contain the nutrients that cats need to have a healthy life.
The level of protein, Taurine, and Arachidonic is much less than those in cat foods.
Cats are unable to survive with low levels of Vitamin A and protein while dogs can.
On the other hand, dogs produce Arachidonic and Taurine, but cats cannot.
Cats need to obtain these acids from their diet.
If a cat does not get the appropriate amount of Taurine, the poor creature can develop dental issues, vision problems, and heart disease.

How Often Should You Feed Indoor Cats? Most cats do well when fed twice a day, from age six months to maturity.
Once the cat becomes an adult, you can feed it twice or even once a day.
For senior cats, you should maintain the same feeding regime.
Do Cats Need Wet Food Every day? This really depends on weight, health, and other factors.
You can honestly feed your cat wet food at any time of the day.
You should not leave wet food out for a prolonged amount of time; it gets spoiled.
Don’t let it sit out for more than an hour tops.
Can A Cat Live On Dry Food Alone?
Dry food is convenient to feed; that’s why most cat owners prefer it over wet food.
You should give your cat supplements as well as wet food while feeding the fluffy creature dry food.
Dry food does not provide your cat with all the nutrition it needs.
Too much dry food also leads to urinary problems in cats.
