James Wellbeloved Life Stage Senior Fish 300g
Fish Senior Cat
James Wellbeloved Senior is formulated to meet the protein and energy requirements of the adult cat of seven years and older. With a mix of glucosamine, chodroitin and herbs to support the joint system which may become stiffer with increasing age and we restrict the phosphorus level to reduce the risk of renal problems. Like the adult food, the recipe includes a balance of soluble and insoluble fibres plus natural prebiotic to support the digestive system and Yucca extract to reduce stool odour
Carefully crafted & nutritionally balanced for senior cats that are over 7 years old.
Bag sizes: 0.3kg, 1.5kg & 4kg
Using all our knowledge and experience, we’ve created James Wellbeloved Fish Senior. We take a handful of ingredients from nature, one source of animal protein and combine them with all the vitamins and minerals your cat needs. And all the great taste it deserves. For added peace of mind, it’s naturally hypoallergenic so less likely to cause an adverse food reaction and you will never see any added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. Not now, not ever.

Every cat is unique
There are a number of factors that play into your cat’s metabolism rate, and thus how much food they need to eat each day to maintain their ideal weight: age, size, the amount they exercise, and whether they are pregnant or nursing. Generally, naturally large cats require more food to power their larger muscles, older cats are more sedentary so need to eat a little less, and kittens are undergoing energy-demanding growth-spurts.
Most pet food manufacturers provide a daily food allowance based on the size of your cat. To help you feed your cat the correct amount for their activity level, James Wellbeloved provides cat feeding guides for three activity levels: lean/very active, normal and indoor/overweight. But remember these are just guidelines and this quantity should be adjusted according to body condition.
Neutering can also influence your cat’s activity levels. In general, post neutering cats show a decline in activity and consequently this is coupled with a need to decrease their calorie intake.
A balanced diet
What you feed your cat also plays a big part in how much you are feeding them. Cat food is available in different formats: wet and dry. The decision on what format to feed is up to you and your cats’ preference, with both options offering benefits. If you decide to feed a mix of the two, be sure to work out proportions correctly so your cat isn’t overfed.
Personality is key
The two great measures of whether you are feeding your cat correctly are: to check their weight and body condition score (we recommend once every two weeks), and to cater their food according to their behaviour. House-cats are likely to live a more sedentary lifestyle than outdoor cats, so their diet will need to reflect their energy requirements. Equally, just as humans change their habits throughout their lifetime, so do our feline companions. As cats age they generally become more sedentary and as a result an older cat doesn’t need to eat as much relative to their weight as a growing kitten or a high-energy middle-aged cat to maintain its ideal weight.
So, pay close attention to their behaviour, body shape and weight, and, if you notice a tubby middle emerging or their energy starts to sap, it might be time to adjust the portions.
