One of the Greatest Mysteries About Cats Explained

Do you have a fussy feline when it comes to meal time? Well Dr. Karen Becker has a fascinating explanation!  Check out her article, "One of the Greatest Mysteries About Cats Explained".  She also includes some excellent tips on encouraging your fussy kitties to eat!

Story at-a-glance (courtesy of healthypets.mercola.com):

  • Cats are obligate carnivores who thrive on meat-based, not plant-based diets
  • Recent research reveals cats have taste receptors for bitter flavors, which were assumed to be of use only to herbivores as a way to detect toxins in plant matter
  • It could be that bitter taste receptors help cats detect toxins in or on prey animals. They may also help protect against internal toxins
  • It’s important that cats eat regularly, so even finicky kitties should always be encouraged to eat
