Food Facts

 

How to best feed your furry friend

 

  • Cats require a high protein diet with a 10%/12% bone content

  • Most dry food and commercial wet foods have very little nutritional content and have a high level of carbohydrates, used as fillers, which cats do not require. This cannot be digested by a cat and therefore will be expelled in the feces at a rate of 30 to 40%

  • Because of the poor nutrient in dry and wet foods, cats with an average weight of 3kg / 4kg, would need to be fed between 300g/400g a day, to sustain the daily calorie intake required.

  • Cats in general drink very little in the wild. This is because they absorb most of their moisture requirement from their prey.

  • By feeding dry food or even some wet foods, a cat does not have enough fluid in its food and this can cause some serious health issues, such as kidney failure, Urinary Tract infection, etc …

  • A raw food that contains more than 12% bone, where a high level of carcasses are used as a filler, will not be highly nutritious and can cause constipation in the cat. In addition, the cat may feel full for a few hours but would then need more food a few hours later.

  • A high protein diet that closely replicates what a cat would eat in the wild, is the healthiest option.

 

All our cats are on a raw food diet only and we can only recommend it to anyone!
