When Selecting a Cat Food, Look Closely at the Ingredients

You’re doing your cat a great injustice if you select the cheapest brand of cat food whether it be canned or dried. Cats need hydration and should have some wet food in their diet. I give my cats a small amount of wet food and a cup of dry food each per day. When shopping for high quality cat food, always look at the ingredients on the back of the bag. Cats of all ages need high levels of protein in their diet. They also need certain amino acids such as taurine and arginine, and fatty acids such as arachidonic acid and linoleic acid. Cats also require preformed vitamin A. This is present only in food of animal origin.It  may be listed in cat foods as retinyl palmitate or acetate. The food must list a high quality protein such as meat, fist or egg as its first ingredient. These proteins are more digestible and complete than those of vegetables. Take your time, compare ingredients and make the right choice.
