Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could capture. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Paw Country 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 really need meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to give energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. On top of that, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific 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 directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
Understand food descriptions. There's a difference 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 called "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.
