Obligate Carnivore…What Does That Mean?

All cats, small or large, are true carnivores, obligate carnivores. This means they must eat meat to survive. Cats cannot be vegetarians. Because they evolved to fill this top predator niche, their bodies are specifically geared for processing a prey-based diet. This is as true for a tiger as it is for the cat on your lap.

Raw feeding is a way to feed cats a more natural diet. By natural we mean species-appropriate. A diet that fits their true nutritional requirements. The benefits to your cat are enormous.

 

The Feline Nutrition Education Society website is chock-full of information on feline nutrition and health.  They have an extensive Resource Center as well.
