    Feeding

    The ideal food for an Australian Mist cat is fatty minced beef, tinned fish, and dry biscuits. On occasion add raw egg yoke, grated cheese or plain yogurt to give a complete diet, and raw steak or liver to chew. Both cats and kittens should have plenty of exercises in chewing.

    It's useful to add a teaspoon of Canola oil to lean meat or fish to supply fat. Minerals are best provided by special supplements for cats, human vitamins are not suitable and may unbalance the cat's vitamin and mineral intake. Don't give the cat meat with small bones, cow's milk, and much cheese - it can lead to diarrhea, especially in small kittens.
