Benefits of fresh cat food for Oriental Cats

Oriental cat FAQs
Yes, the oriental cat breed is widely considered hypoallergenic. While no breed of cat is truly hypoallergenic, Orientals generally produce less of the Fel D1 protein that is responsible for triggering allergies in humans. For those unlucky people who are allergic to cats, the oriental breed is one that you may be safe to show some love.
Your oriental cat should be fed one pouch of KatKin fresh cat food every day. This will provide them with the exact daily calorie and nutrient needs your Oriental requires. How do we do it? By loving hard and tailoring our food pouches to every cat we meet.
Whilst they are young, Oriental kittens should be fed between 3 - 4 meals per day. We perfectly portion your Oriental kitten’s food into daily pouches. This means that for kittens, you should divide one pouch into 3 or 4 meals per day.
Oriental cats should not be left alone for too long. They crave company and are best suited to being in a home where they get lots of love and attention. They are such great company we can’t imagine why you’d ever want to leave them. But if you have to, we wouldn’t recommend leaving your oriental cat alone for more than an hour or two.
No, although they share a lot of physical traits, Oriental cats and Siamese cats are not the same. The two breeds are closely related as Oriental cats were bred by mixing Siamese cats with other breeds. Different cat combinations means there is a lot of variation and modern Oriental cats can come in over 60 colours.
