Cats are fussy eaters; they also have their food obsessions. Some cats like to eat what’s unhealthy for them.  A nutritionally balanced diet is an important need of cats. Make sure you are feeding an lifestage-appropirate diet to your pet.

The diet of cats should consist of high amounts of protein and lower amounts of carbohydrates, and the right proportions of fats, minerals, and vitamins. The right diet is an important cornerstone in achieving optimum health and wellbeing of cats. It can also boost the immune system’s ability to fight off infection.

The ancestors of domestic cats lived in the wild and had to hunt for prey many hours each day. Their hunting activities will require time and energy. So they will need more calories per day than domestic cats. Living with people has eliminated the need to walk long distances to hunt for food. Pet cats are totally dependent on their owners for their sustenance.
