How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is better than the others. The Raw Connection in Carmel, CA can help you cut through the chaos. We have a wide variety of cat foods and can assist you in finding the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good selection of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. The Raw Connection has all the foods that will keep them happy and nutritious.
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 can be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. Also, some cat foods feature carbohydrates, which are digestible and supply energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels have feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's suggestions 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 called "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.
