Support Our Local Pet Supply Store with Your Order of Cat Food for Cats

How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is more effective than the others. Petropolis in New York, NY can help reduce the confusion. We carry a number of cat foods and can assist you in selecting the one that is right for your precious pet.

Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a wide variety of nutritious food, based on what they could capture. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Petropolis 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 need meat in some form. This may be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. In addition, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.

Reading a Cat Food Label

Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.

Learn about food descriptions. There's a distinction 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.

Labels include feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes priority.

Search for the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
