My cat's coat.

by Victoria

Hello My cat summer is is a Bombay mixed with Ragamuffin and I was wanting to know what can I feed her to make her coat shinny. he is mostly black all except for a little white spot on her belly =]. I feed her Friskies Feline Favorites(she like's that) Is there something I can add to her food? like oil, eggs or something like that?

well good quality cat food should provide all the right nutrients to make sure your cats is at optimal health and that they have a shiny coat. So it may be that you need to change her food to something a little better quality ( I do not know much about the brand you are using).

It may be that she requires some extra nutrients perhaps she is a little run down etc. I have a page about skin and fur conditions in cats and on that page there is a product advertised which is for coat condition, you may want to take a look at that. here is the page

regular brushing by you will also help to keep the coat in good condition. Your cat has short fur so would only need a light brushing once or twice a week with a soft cat grooming brush 9make sure you use the right sort for your cats coat length, your local pet shop should be able to help with this choice).

best wishes Kate
