Cat Food

Cats are carnivorous animals; they require meat to survive. This is an important fact for pet owners to remember as they select food for their cats. Nutritionally, cats are inflexible animals that thrive on meat. They need a lot of it for the protein and fat content. 

Cats are different from dogs, but pet owners often treat them like little dogs. Dogs can eat a variety of foods and stay healthy. However, dog food can be fatal to cats. Unlike dogs, cats cannot process carbohydrates well. Eating high-carb foods can cause obesity problems that can lead to diabetes and other conditions.

So, what is the best food for cats? According to the experts at WebMD, pet owners can ignore terms like “gourmet,” “natural,” and “premium.” They are simply descriptive terms with no standard definitions. The best cat food meets all the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) standards.

Whether cats eat wet or dry food, they know what they like. If the food pleases their palate and does not cause gastrointestinal problems, it is probably a good choice. Pet owners can find healthy food for their cats at pet stores, supermarkets, pharmacies and discount outlets. Online retailers like have a variety of wet and dry foods and cat treats. They also offer a pet food delivery service.
