Why is an indoor cat formula important?
Skin and Fur — Indoor cats might experience poor skin and fur quality due to prolonged exposure to HVAC systems. Although HVAC systems create a comfortable living environment for indoor cats, dry air can lead to flaky skin and a dull coat.
Hairballs — Indoor cats spend approximately three to four hours per day self-grooming. Increased grooming can result in significant hairball formation in the cat’s digestive tract. Hairballs can form an intestinal blockage, which can be detrimental to the cat’s health if the hairball is not easily eliminated.
Weight Management — Indoor cats are less active than outdoor cats, sleeping up to 75% of the day. The resulting inactivity can lead to unhealthy weight gain, predisposing them to weight-related health concerns, such as diabetes, osteoarthritis and even a shorter lifespan.
Litter Box Odor — Indoor cats use litter boxes, thereby regularly exposing their owners to odor. Excessive stool odor can be a sign of a poorly designed diet.
