Re-Examining our Cat Food

by Kathy Fatheree


     Have you noticed over the last several years that there is a new buzz in the cat food industry? Major companies are spending millions on investigating proper nutrition for our feline friends. Companies have found that cat owners want excellent nutrition and are willing to pay for it. The investigation is only beginning and there are many unknowns, so cat owners still have to be diligent in determining the right food to feed our cats to ensure good health and long life.


     Proper nutrition can prevent many diseases. Feeding a proper diet is essentially preventative maintenance. When a complete diet is fed in a form that the body can absorb, the body can operate and function as designed. Feeding a proper diet can sometimes reverse illnesses and even some diseases. Nutrition is a very important topic and worth some in-depth investigation of our own.


     I myself am certainly guilty of feeding only dry food because it’s convenient. I think it’s time for me to re-examine the food. Yes, my cat food is a PREMIUM brand sold by the health food store, but what exactly am I feeding to my loved ones… and could I improve their diet? After all, Phoebe is going to be 7 years old this year… and some experts considered that to be middle age.


In following articles, we will discuss:

* Corn and other Grains
* Dry Food vs. Canned Food
* High Protein / Low Carb Diets
* Interpreting Pet Food Labels
* Diseases and Diet
* And more…
