SINCE CATS ALWAYS GET THEIR WAY, WE DECIDED TO PUT THEM TO WORK.
Cats are notoriously fussy when it comes to their food. And it isn’t just to test your patience. It’s biological. Cats are true carnivores. As such, nature demands they eat a diet based on animal proteins to thrive. That’s why our Physiologically Correct recipes always start with meats rich in complete proteins as the main ingredient. But it wouldn’t matter how nutritious our food is if your cat won’t eat it, so we tailor the taste of our recipes based on actual feline feedback to ensure it’s equally delicious. When we say our food is Co-Created by Cats, it isn’t just a slogan, it’s the secret to everything we make.
THE GREAT THING ABOUT CATS, THEY AREN’T SHY ABOUT GIVING THEIR OPINIONS.
As we all know, cats are very particular about what they eat. And not just from a nutritional standpoint. If they don’t love the taste of something, they simply won’t eat it. So, to get the flavor of our recipes just right, we turned to the experts: actual cats. By co-creating our recipes with the cats who enjoy them, we learned that while some felines love their Boneless Chicken in Gravy with Sweet Potatoes, others enjoy Chicken with a flavorful helping of Duck, or even Anchovies. While other cats have more pescetarian tastes, and prefer their bowls filled with fish, like quality Tuna mixed with tasty Shrimp or Anchovies. Thanks to the extensive feedback we get from our feline focus groups, we’re able to create Physiologically Tuned™ recipes that are as delicious as they are nutritious.
While we all consider our cats to be members of the family, their dietary needs couldn’t be more different than humans. As strict carnivores, they simply cannot thrive on an omnivorous diet that’s high in carbohydrates.
Nature has given your cat a physiology designed to process meat extremely efficiently. At least 20% of your cat’s diet should be protein for proper nourishment. And not from protein sources such as Soy.
Only animal sources provide complete protein and amino acids. All Fussie Cat recipes start with Meat First, but regardless of what cat food brand you choose, read the label to ensure it starts with high-quality animal protein for the health of your pet.
When it comes to human diets, there’s great debate over high or low carbohydrate diets. But when it comes to cats, there’s no debate. Your cat will thrive on a high protein diet. A high-quality canned food has approximately 3 to 5 percent of its calories from carbohydrates.
Cats instinctively have a low thirst drive, and are physiologically designed to obtain most of their water from their diet. A cat’s normal prey is approximately 70 percent water. So, even if you always keep their water bowl full, that may not be enough. Canned wet food contains approximately 78 percent water, similar to a diet in the wild. By feeding your feline Physiologically Correct food with a high water content you’ll help support needed hydration.
