Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good assortment of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Muttigans has all the foods that will keep them happy 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 essential amino acids. This can be poultry, 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 feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular 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 contain feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
Learn about 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 described 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.
