Support Our Community Pet Shop with Your Purchase of Canned Food
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is more effective than the others. The Raw Connection in Carmel, CA can help you cut through the chaos. We have a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in choosing the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. The Raw Connection has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and healthy.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need to have meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This could be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to deliver energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. In addition, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, like ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy STment, which explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels consist of feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes lead.
Understand food descriptions. There's a difference between "chicken cat food" and "cat food with chicken." Chicken cat food must be 95 percent chicken, while cat food with chicken can have as little as 3 percent. Food referred to as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs.

We go every other weekend to pick up food for both our dog and parrot. They have a great selection of high quality food, and supplements; friendly staff is knowledgeable about the products they sell.
This is what a pet food store should look like! Just had the most pleasant conversation with the owner of the store. She walked me through some great gently cooked options for my puppy. She is so knowledgeable and helpful. If you are considering transitioning to gently cooked or raw, this is the place to go with, with all of your questions and concerns. They also had an incredible selection of treats, chews, and toys !
Amazing place. Great knowledgeable owner.
