Do you know the cat food which you are certain that you cat will get the proper nutrition? Or are you certain what is the best mix of food that assist you cat to live to the fullest of life span.
Next let’s talk about what a cat’s diet would be like in a wild environment. The diet would include entirely animal tissue in the wild environment. Generally they would eat the entire body of one animal, such as the stomach contents with a variety of nutrients which an animal’s muscle tissue are in a lack, such as fiber.
Usually we would think fresh meat has been the best food for cats. Actually it’s not true. Fresh meat can’t offer a balanced diet for a cat because they contain dense protein and low vital nutrients like calcium. Actually the mainstream commercial cat food involves various kinds of nutrition.
Then the cat owners would ask whether a completely vegetarian diet is reasonable to feed their cat. Of course the answer is no. Like humans, cats can’t get enough nutrition from a completely vegetarian diet.
Cat has largely lost the ability of specialized in hunting over the course of evolution. In animal flesh alone we have found skin problems of cats, which sometimes result from a lack of certain essential fatty acids. In addition, a deficiency of the amino acid taurine (a vital building block for proteins in the body) is another big problem during the evolution course. These deficiencies may lead to both blindness and heart failure in cat’s body. Cats are born to be carnivores, thus its diet must contain protein-rich food to maintain its normal grow up.
Dry food with enough quantities of fresh water is considered to be accessible to be provided to cats, which is more convenient, hygienic and economic than other diets. Additionally dry food contributes to exercises the teeth and decreases the formation of tartar, which may develop into a serious problem in cats.
