The Best Cat Food is the One They Evolved On

The best cat food is fresh, quality, raw meat and bones.



Because that’s how cats evolved. They have been evolving for millennia so are super adapted to this diet.

On the other hand, cats have been fed processed food for a few decades.

Which do you think has more influence?

Cats kill their food. They don’t scavenge, as do dogs. That’s why cats are such fussy eaters. They heartily dislike the processed food they are given, but need to eat to survive.

So their food needs to be super fresh. Raw. And of good quality - this means human grade.

No cows hooves or other weird or strange ideas often spoken of on forums.

Don’t worry, feeding human grade raw meat and bones won’t cost you an arm and a leg. In fact, it’s likely to be a great deal cheaper than processed foods.

Human grade food is nutrient dense. Processed cat food is nutrient poor. So much less of the quality meat is needed.

Feeding the best cat food also means your cat is likely to be super healthy. Which, in turn, means fewer expensive trips to the veterinarian.

It becomes a win-win situation.

Admittedly, it is a tad more complicated to prepare than opening a can or packet. But no more than a few minutes, once you’ve got the hang of it. And that doesn’t take long.

Kittens and young cats adapt very easily to a raw diet. Older cats may take a bit of persuading. They get as stuck in their ways as humans do. But it’s worth persevering.

The best cat food makes for a happy and healthy cat - better for you and your cat.
