Cat Food Info #1 Cats Need Protein in their Cat Food The cat
food you feed to your cat should always be rich in protein. This
generally should come from meat, poultry or fish. Many cat food
brands advertise chicken, beef, and tuna flavored cat food
because they know that cats need protein and cat owners are
looking for quality cat food. However, you need to make sure the
cat food you buy has a sufficient amount of cat food regardless
of what flavor it is.
Cat Food Info #2 Cat Food with Taurine Also check the cat food
you typically buy for an amino acid called taurine. This
particular amino acid is very important in the overall health of
your cat, and your cat will eat as much food as it has to in
order to supplement this particular amino acid. So, if you are
buying cheap cat food that does not have the proper nutrients
your cat will eat a lot. If you buy a nutrient rich cat food
then your cat will eat little and save you more money while
still getting proper nutrition.
Cat Food Info #3 Canned Cat Food or Dry Cat Food? Many people do
not know whether they should buy canned or dry cat food, or
whether it even matters. Because of this, many people simply buy
the cat food that is most affordable or convenient for them.
This is actually a mistake. Cats should be fed a mixture of cat
food. The dry cat food should be given for free feeding,
especially if you are away on vacation or out for the day.
Canned cat food should be supplemented at other times as well
because it has water in the food and significantly more protein
than the carbohydrate rich dry cat food. Not to mention the same
food over and over might bore your cat and cause him to stop
eating that cat food altogether.
Cat Food Info #4 Avoid Cat Food Fillers Cats need to eat a cat
food that is rich in protein, so make sure the amount of fillers
is kept to a minimum. Carbohydrates are not essential for a
cat’s existence, so don’t buy cat food that is full of them.
Instead, read labels and buy cat food that is not filled with
fillers and other by products.
