Fatty foods taste good, even to a cat who’s a finicky eater. If a cat has a diet that’s too high in fat, he could gain weight and become obese but that doesn’t mean that you should avoid feeding fats to your cat.  If fact, fats are a very important part of your cat’s diet. Fats give your cat the energy he needs throughout his day and helps keep his coat soft and shiny.  Fats also help your cats body absorb important vitamins such as vitamins A, B, D, and K. So check the label om your cats food. By law. it has to state the fat content. Talk to your veterinarian to determine what fat content is best for your cats age, health and overall activity level.

Remember, your pets count!
