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 happy and healthy.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need to have meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This may be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply 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 include 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.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels consist of feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes precedence.
Understand food descriptions. There's a big 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.
