A proper diet and regular exercise are important components of your cat’s overall health and well-being. One trip to the pet store will leave your head spinning about the ins and outs of cat foods.

Feline nutrition is very important for general health. However, the plethora of dietary options, brands, and formulas available to consumers can be confusing, making it hard to decide which kind of cat food is best for your feline friend’s health and wellness.

Unlike humans and various other creatures (dogs included), cats’ evolutionary process has resulted in no dietary need for carbohydrates. Just like their undomesticated, and much larger relatives, domesticated cats’ bodies have adapted to a protein and fat-rich, carbohydrate-poor diet. In the wild, cats use plants, primarily tall and short grass, for digestive regulation and dental support. However, wild cats do not consume vegetable or plant matter for the purpose of energy or nutrition.

High-quality cat foods are formulated with this evolutionary platform, and feline nutrition requirements, in mind.
