Nutrition

 

THE BEST FOOD FOR YOUR FELINE

Overall, the best diet for your cat is one that replicates what it would eat in the wild – that is, a moisture-rich meat-filled diet with all the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients needed to maintain its health.

Foods lacking necessary nutrients, void of water, or filled with unnecessary fillers such as grains, can cause serious health problems.

FEEDING YOUR CAT FOR HEALTH

Feeding your cat properly is imperative for his or her good health. A proper diet can go a long ways in preventing medical problems such as diabetes, obesity, gastro-intestinal disorders (including vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation), kidney disease, urinary tract crystals or inflammation, and other issues.

The right cat food can pay off in reduced veterinary bills for years to come – and the love and companionship of your feline friend for a much longer time. Did you know cats are capable of living 30 years or more? Keep your kitty healthy and happy by feeding him or her the best.

Fillers

Pet food companies often include fillers in their cat food, such as grains and other vegetable matter. These ingredients hold little nutritional benefit for your cat. The cat is an obligatory (strict) carnivore, and can only derive nutrients from meat and dairy products.

Fillers, even protein fillers such as grain glutens, can lead toward health problems such as gastro-intestinal disease. They are also higher in carbohydrates, which may lead to obesity and diabetes.

Meat Proteins

Not all meat products are created equal. Beef and fish are the most allergenic of proteins – cats, in the wild, eat primarily rodents and birds, not cows and fish.

Byproducts are meats not used for human consumption. While some byproducts are perfectly acceptable in a cat’s diet (such as organ meat), it’s wise to include some muscle meat as well.

Remember – meat alone is not sufficient to maintain feline health. Cats also need calcium and other nutrients not provided by meat alone.

These are the top foods we feed our Ragdolls – All dry food is fed free choice.
Our choices for dry formulas are based on comsumption for ALL of our cats – Farmina N&D Prime Grain Free Lamb & Blueberries, Orijen Tundra, Performatrin Ultra Grain-Free & Carna4 (Air dried food, our cats love this) – ALL 4 varieties are fed.  We will ALWAYS recommend what your kitten(s) are currently eating – so please contact us before you buy:)  Please read our complete list as we also cover healthy choices for cat treats as well:)  We believe Pre & Probiotics are very beneficial  – we raise our kittens the Healthy Gut formula – please see link below.  Wet diet is crucial to feline health – we feed wet diet twice a day.   https://littlebigcat.com/why-cats-need-canned-food-2/
