Food is the fuel for living things, so choosing the proper food for your Bengal cat is very important.
You should keep in mind that Bengals are carnivores, not omnivores and not vegetarians. I suggest that you should make raw diet for your cat, it’s because commercial pet foods today contain very little meat but contain large quantity of corn, potatoes, rice and so many other ‘non-meat foods’. You should put simply raw diet, such as bones and organ meat. A raw dies is not only healthier and easier but also cheaper than any other commercial pet food. Make sure that meat is fresh and should cut into small chunks for kittens and larger pieces for cats. Raw diet should include 80 to 85% raw meat, 10 to 15% edible bones.
Bengals gain weight faster than the other domestic cats, so be attentive and careful for this. Make it a habit to check your pet’s weight. As gain in weight is a serious danger of heart attack.
