It’s time to feed your kitties, and as the two-legs in charge, it’s up to you to feed a diet that satisfies your cat’s tastes, nutritional requirements, and moisture content needed to stay sleek, fit, and purring.
Why Feed Your Cats Raw Food?
Cats are obligate carnivores, in other words, they are obligated to eat meat. Cats depend on animal protein sources to survive. Additionally, cats typically drink very little water and instead consume animal protein as their primary source of moisture intake.
Supplying Essential Moisture
Cooking cat food evaporates much of its precious water, reducing the healthy 75 percent moisture content found in a wild cat’s natural diet, down to a woeful 10 percent. While certain brands may be better than others, vets have linked low-moisture food to severe health issues, such as kidney failure, bladder stones, and inflammatory bowel disease in cats. Raw cat food overcomes these troubles because it has a high moisture content of nutritious meats, fruits, and vegetables.
Another big problem with most kibble is that it contains mostly grain. Check the label of your favorite dry food, and you’ll usually see rice, wheat or corn gluten meal at the head of the ingredients list, meaning that they make up the bulk of the contents. In nature, cats don’t eat many carbs, and they lack the long digestive tracts and sufficient amounts of the enzyme amylase needed to metabolize them properly. Although a few cats do fine with whatever you give them, overloading your kitty with grain-heavy foods may make them more inclined toward chronic obesity.
