A balanced diet is what will keep Korata healthy for years to come. With improper feeding, there is a high risk of developing various kinds of diseases in cats, in particular, immunodeficiency, vitamin deficiency, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases. Breeders cannot agree on which type of feeding is most beneficial for the krats.

Feeding ready-made, dry or wet foods made specifically for cats is considered the easiest way. Super premium foods aren't the cheapest, but they are best for feeding cats. In addition, you can select foods that are specific to your gender, age, health status, and even breed. Super premium food is made from high quality products, while premium food is made using lower quality meat, vegetables and cereals, and economy class - from offal.

Dry food is more economical, since only a small amount is required to saturate the corat. In addition, dry food can sit in the bowl all day and not lose its appeal to the cat. On average, a kilogram of super-premium dry food costs from 500 to 1000 rubles, such food requires 50-70 g per day, i.e. one pack of food will last for 14-20 days, which is cheaper than the total cost of natural products needed to feed the korat during the same period of time.

The water in the bowl should always be clean, fresh, filtered, but not boiled or from the tap, available to the korat throughout the day. When using commercial prepared feeds, the need to change the water in the bowl more often increases. You can buy a special fountain for cats at the pet store, which will help the cat drink more water, since most of them prefer running water from standing. In addition, in such fountains, the water stays clean longer thanks to the built-in filters.

Supporters of natural feeding should be aware that: firstly, the preparation of a balanced diet is a very responsible and difficult business; secondly, food for korat will need to be prepared separately several times a week; thirdly, good quality products and good vitamin and mineral complexes cost a lot of money; fourthly, in different periods of life (growing up, pregnancy and childbirth, illness, old age) cats require different diets.

Any cat's natural diet should always be based onlean meat (chicken, turkey, beef, rabbit, offal). A couple of days a week it can be replaced with lean, boneless marine fish. It is better not to give porridge to cats at all, since their gastrointestinal tract is not adapted to digest fiber (rice, millet, oats, etc.). In addition to meat, cats are given vegetables, herbs (chopped raw spinach, watercress, sprouted oats) and a little vegetable oil. It is useful to add fermented milk products to the diet (not fresh milk, since it causes diarrhea in most adult cats), vegetables, raw yolk can be given once or twice a week. With natural feeding, the Korat should be given vitamins and minerals. Do not give cats food from the master's table, especially sweet, sour, fried, salty, pickled, seasoned with spices. Also, you cannot feed the korat with peas, beans,lentils, raisins, pork, nuts, sausages and baked goods.

If the owner of the korat has chosen mixed feeding, it is important for him to remember that it is impossible to mix natural products with ready-made feed. The portioning regimen is based on special tables, most often based on the weight of the cat.

Nowadays, a raw food diet is spreading among cat owners. With this feeding, cats are given only raw foods, which in composition are as close as possible to what wild cats eat in nature. Every year there are more and more companies supplying such sets of products.

When choosing any type of feeding, remember that cats do not need a lot of carbohydrates like dogs. Adult Korat needs 6-8% carbohydrates in the diet, 25-30% proteins and no more than 20% fats.

Adult krats are fed 2-3 times a day, juniors 3-4 times a day, kittens 4-5 times a day.
