You have tried so many varieties of food for your cat to find out what is the best one for your cat’s taste, however, you failed to find the very food your cart will be happy to try?
In this article I will help you find out the best food for your cat which will be both healthy and yummy that will please your cat greatly. With this in mind we need to remember that cats are carnivores who want to eat meat not only in order to survive, but also to feel satisfied with life. This is the reason the best food for a cat is either a properly formulated raw, home-cooked or grain-free canned diet.
In order to avoid further complications or any possible diseases, you should never feed your cat with dry food. This will cause stomach ache and not only. Cats should never eat dry food as these foods are too high in carbohydrates. Many cat owners used to think that dry food is very good for your cats and they will clean your cat’s teeth. However, this is far from being the truth as many cats do not chew their food long enough to have the result we talked about. Cats just divide their food into smaller pieces using their teeth. And nowadays you can find many pet food manufacturers who offer a so called dental diet for cats which is made up of larger pieces so that cats start chewing actively using their teeth and cleaning and sharpening them this way. Still there are many glutton cats that simply swallow even very large sized pieces of food totally without making them into smaller pieces. Also, keep in mind that dry food leaves a carbohydrate residue in the cat’s mouth encouraging growth of tartar and plaque as a result of which a visit to a dentist may be required.
I have done much research to find out the best food for cats and below I will list important points to look art when buying your cat a yummy food.
Pay attention to have the protein listed as the first ingredient on the label of the food you intend to buy for your cat, also the meat or poultry used in the food needs to be proper for human consumption as well. If you can afford to buy food for your cat where the meat is organic, that will be even better.
The food needs to be grain-free which means there shouldn’t be any rice, barley, or any other stuff like that. These ingredients are quite normal and even useful in case of human food, but we should keep in mind that cats’ digestive tracts are a little different and are not originally designed to digest the unnecessary carbs.
The food is not supposed to contain by-products, corn, soy, or any other filers like that.
Also, the food needs to be GMO-free.
Another secret – avoid fish. I know this sounds weird as it is a well-known fact that cats adore fish based foods. You need to either use fish sparingly or avoid fish from the diet at all. The fish used in the cat’s food is contaminated with heavy metals thus is very dangerous for their health.
