I know what catswant, cats want.
Cats want meat.
Come on, yo, let'sget cat-ified.
[MUSIC PLAYING] Let's talk about free feeding.
Come on now, people.
To feed all the time or not,the concept of free feeding.
Free feeding means leavingfood out for your cats 24/7.
It also means dolingout treats 24/7 as well.
I want to break thisdown into two places.
The first thing isphysical, and the other one is psychologicallyslash behaviorally.
Free feeding underminesthe work that we try to do.
Physically, we are playing intobetter health with these guys by not free feeding them.
They are built toeat small meals through the course of a day.
I'd say every five tosix hours is optimum.
You push it a littlebit, that's fine.
Cats are not grazers by nature.
Cats are not builtto just eat whenever.
They are built to do what? Hunt, catch, kill, and eat food.
Food is available to them afterthey do a certain activity.
If it's always there 24/7, itmesses with the raw cat brain.
You're experiencing behaviorproblems in your house.
You're asking me tobreak it down for you.
What's going on in my house? One of the first places I'lltell you to look is food.
Think about it if yourcat has litter box issues, peeing or poopingoutside the box.
If you control when they eat,you have a fighting chance to figure out when they'regoing to go to the litter box and then helping themget to the litter box.
So there's that as well.
You got to remember, folks, catsare not programmed like dogs.
Cats do not give arip about pleasing us.
So if a cat doesn'tcare about pleasing us, we have to startaddressing something they do want in orderto get what we want.
Living with cats isembracing compromise.
There are so many thingsthat we can accomplish, but only if we're feeding meals.
We can achieveincredible things.
Your homework, shouldyou choose to accept it, get your cats off thefree feeding bandwagon.
Put them on themeal time bandwagon because I got totell you, if you've got any otherquestions– Jackson, I've got a catwho dot, dot, dot.
I want to get my catto dot, dot, dot.
It starts with that.

I want to see youguys subscribe.
I want to keep growingthis thing, man.

This is what makes thecat-ification nation.
