A WORD ABOUT CATS

  • Cats are most allergic to beef, lamb, fish, corn, wheat, and soy.
  • Fish is high in phosphorus and not good for older cats kidneys. ( limit fish, do not give daily.)
  • A high carb. diet can lead to diabetes and dry food can cause kidney disease.
  • Cats should have no more than 1% or 2% carbs, the average dry food contains 35% - 50% carbohydrate calories, some cheaper brands are even higher!.
  • All obligate carnivores are designed to meet their needs from a high protein, moderate fat diet with no or little carbohydrates and what carbs that are utilized are used as energy and those that are not, are stored as fat in the body.
  • Yes there are good plant proteins but plant protein is an incomplete protein and obligate carnivores (our cats) need complete proteins. Raw meat is a complete protein.
  • Raw proteins derived from animal tissue have a complete amino acid profile (the building blocks of protein). Plant based protein does not have the full complement of critical amino acids required by the obligate carnivore, (a cat).
  • Taurine is one of the most important nutrients in raw meat and is destroyed when meat is cooked. Synthetic taurine is added back into the cooked dry food , along with many other synthetic vitamins minerals, amino acids and natural pro-biotics , that are heat sensitive and destroyed. (Cooked meat should only be given as a treat)
  • Soy has no business being in cat food and negatively influences the Thyroid. It only enhances the profit margin for the cat food manufacturer.
  • Do cats survive on these heavily synthetically supplemented, and plant based proteins? Yes they can survive.
  • Do these cats thrive? No they do not ..
