Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could nab. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Pet's General Store 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 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. In addition, some cat foods incorporate 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.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals 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 advice takes priority.
Know 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.
