(Article Dashboard) Which is the most nutritious low cost cat food? Can you have a nutritious and a low cost cat food? Isn’t it a bit like asking if you can have your cake and eating it, too?
The great thing is that you can.
But it doesn’t come in any can or packet.
Nutritious cat food needs to be the type of food that your cat has evolved on. After all, that has been going on for rather a long time.
Whereas processed act food has been going on for only a few decades.
Cats are notoriously fussy eaters. This is because they prefer to kill their food and eat it immediately. Which means they prefer super fresh meat and bones.
Fresh meat is the healthiest. Would you eat stale meat? It’s much more likely to contain harmful pathogens. And cats know this.
Processed food, at best, is the rejects from human food processing plants. Which means it’s low grade and usually not fresh at all.
By buying human grade meat and bones (in the form of chicken necks and wings) and feeding this raw to your cat, you will be getting as close as you can to the diet they evolved on.
That’s the most nutritious food for your cat, without a shadow of a doubt.
But is it the lowest cost?
On the surface, I’m sure you’ll agree that it sounds as if it’s one of the most expensive diets.
But, when you feed your cat real food, they need much less than poor quality food. Nutrient dense food will satisfy them quickly. Nutrient poor food will never satisfy them, so they will always be hungry.
Don’t suspect worms, although that may be a problem. Suspect the quality of the food you are feeding.
Couple that with the fact that a nutritious cat food will keep your cat healthier longer, and imagine the veterinarian bills you won’t be paying out.
Learning which is the most nutritious low cost cat food can mean a win-win situation – your cat’s health and your wallet.
