Cats, Nutrition and Raw Feeding

Cat Nutrition and Raw Feeding: There are many things that go into keeping your cat healthy and happy. Genetics and environment play a part. But, there is one thing that has a huge effect on your cat’s health, and that is diet. Cats are predators that evolved to eat a diet of raw meat. It is only over the past 70 years or so that we have tried to feed cats a diet based on foods unsuitable for a strict carnivore. Grains, vegetable and plant matter and highly processed and cooked meat products. It’s no wonder cats suffer from so many diet-related diseases, due to poor quality commercially driven cat foods, hence the need to look at cat nutrition and raw feeding.

Cat Nutrition and Raw Feeding

You are likely reading this because you want to learn more about how to keep your cat healthy. Diet is the most important change you can make in your cat’s life. We hear over and over again from pet parents who have changed their cats’ diet how they wish they had done it sooner. They can’t imagine feeding their cats any other way. Not only do they see improvements in their cats’ health, but they feel a great sense of relief knowing they control what goes into their cat. No more mystery ingredients.
Contemplating a diet change for your cat can be a bit overwhelming at first.

We are so used to leaving our cats’ nutrition in the hands of others. But, cat nutrition is complicated, right? Well, not really. It’s actually pretty easy.

We want to help you come to the right decision and feel confident about it. We want to help you do it right. And there is no single right way. There are many right ways to do it, so there will be a way that works for you and your cats. Whether it is a commercially prepared complete diet, a ground meat product you supplement yourself, a homemade raw meat diet, whole meat cuts, whole prey items or a combination of these, your cat will see the benefits of a diet closer to what she evolved to eat.
