You know how important your diet is to your health and well being.
It is equally important to understand the nutritional needs and requirements for your kitten and what they need as a grown cat.
Felines are true CARNIVORES. That means that their diet should consist primarily of meats including beef, poultry, duck and fish.
Protein is King
In nature cats hunt and eat birds, mice, reptiles, insects, etc.
So to mimic the diet that mother nature intended, the best cat foods are....
HIGH IN PROTEIN & GRAIN FREE
Water is Vital
Cats rely mostly on their diet for moisture and don't drink as much water as they might need.
Canned foods are highly palatable and are the best source of nutrition and water for your cat.
I am a big proponent of water fountains to add interest and fun to drinking water for your kitty.
You should review the labels on your cat foods to make sure the ingredients DO NOT include corn, wheat, barley and other grains that cats do not need. These grains are generally used as fillers and can be very difficult for some cats to digest causing diarrhea, obesity, gas, vomiting, and other physical ailments.
