The first step to a happy and healthy cat is good food. Cats can be very picky eaters and will often turn away from what is presented in the food dish. This often makes it very hard to determine what we should be feeding kitty.
Many commercial pet food are of extremely poor quality and often contain ingredients that are even harmful to our cat’s health. It was not until my young cat died suddenly from kidney failure, which I now believe was a result of the ingredients of her food, did I begin to question my pet food choices. In addition, at this same time kitty brother was displaying symptoms of a food addiction – he was eating and purging, constantly. As a result he was sluggish and overweight.
These events led me to research pet food and their ingredients to determine how I could get my cats on a healthier path prevent a possible future health crisis. It led me to the realization of the importance of reading and deciphering pet food labels to avoid feeding “kitty junk food” – foods filled with unhealthy fillers, chemicals, and artificial colors and flavors. Through my research I also learned:
Cats Should Not Eat Corn: Cats cannot digest corn properly. A constant corn-filled diet stresses the kidneys which will eventually lead to kidney failure and certain death. Many pet food companies use corn as a filler in their cat food products even though it is very harmful to cat’s health.
Cats Require A High Protein/Low Carb Diet: which is not what they are getting from most dry food kibble.
In the end I found Life’s Abundance pet food and products. Formulated by a holistic veterinarian, all their foods have no chemical ingredients, no artificial flavors or colors and are filled with high quality proteins. After switching all my pets to a diet of Life’s Abundance I was so impressed with the improvement in their health I became an independent field representative for the company.
