Get Behind Our Local Pet Store with Your Purchase of Dry Food
Exactly how do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is superior than the others. The Raw Connection in Carmel, CA can help you cut through the chaos. We stock a variety of cat foods and can aid you in finding the one that is right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good assortment of nutritious food, based upon what they could nab. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. The Raw Connection has all the foods that will keep them happy and healthy.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They require meat in some form: animal protein for crucial amino acids. This can 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 incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific 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.
Seek out the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes precedence.
Learn about 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.

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.
