Exactly how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is more suitable than the others.

Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Muttigans has all the foods that will keep them satisfied 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 necessary amino acids. This may be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide 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 feature 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 such as fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is intended 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 lead.
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 referred to 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.
