Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Pets N' Stuff has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They require meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to deliver energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. Also, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, for instance, ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels have feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes lead.
Know food descriptions. There's a distinction between "chicken cat food" and "cat food with chicken." Chicken cat food must be 95 percent chicken, while cat food with chicken can have as little as 3 percent. Food referred to as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs.
