Professor Daisy Talks About (Yuck!) Fruits and Vegetables

Look at this stuff. It’s fruits and vegetables… yuck! How did this get on my plate, anyway? Since I am wearing my lab coat, let’s talk a little about nutrition. Cats are obligate carnivores. That means we were designed to eat meats. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at a cat’s teeth. Sharp, right? Even though we can eat other kinds of foods, a cat’s diet must be primarily meat-based. This is awesome because meat tastes delicious!

This is more like it!I got some Petcurean GO! Sensitivity + Shine Grain Free Trout & Salmon Pate. Holistic vet Dr. Dym tells us how to read pet food labels:

While there is often an extensive list of ingredients, the most important ingredients in the pet food are the first three ingredients, which are those present in highest amounts in the food.  Given that dogs and cats are mainly carnivores, I recommend that two out of the first three ingredients listed on the label be meat.

Let’s take a look at the first few ingredients in this stuff: Fresh water trout, salmon, salmon broth, herring meal, dried egg, potatoes, carrots, peas, chicken broth. That all sounds good to me! A small amount of fruits and vegetables is healthy. Remember that in the wild, when cats eat their prey they also ingest the vegetable matter found in the stomach contents of the prey animal.

Let me just taste a sample. It’s YUMMY, and I especially love pate-textured food. This stuff also comes in a Chicken, Turkey & Duck Pate flavor.

    The best part is the soft, gooshy texture!

  3. Well, I don’t eat meat so that food does not look good to me. I am a vegetarian goat.
    I am glad you like it Daisy. I’m sure the Farm cats would too!

    Pricilla, if you lived near me, I would give you all of my fruits and vegetables!

  5. O hai. I bet the food is really tasty. 🙂 My hoomin friend says she will eat the berries and carrots if you do not want them. 🙂

    Healthy and delicious is a very good combination!

  9. Emmy is on FF canned food. We are currently having SD for sensitive stomachs. However, Meowm wants to get us boys back on Blue Buffalo Wilderness. Weh would like to get Emmy on a different wet food, but they can be so expensive! And since Meowm is supporting her and us and Aunt Anna, she has to be careful.
