How Long Does It Take for a Cat to Digest Food?

Answer

The digestion process for food involves the mouth, food pipe, stomach, various acids and enzymes in the intestines. Normal bacteria in the intestine help your cat digest her food. The type of food you feed your cat will determine the rate at which the food is digested. Generally, the rate at which food is digested can be estimated by estimating the time the cat ate and the time it goes to the toilet.
