For cat lovers, it is important to keep your furry friend healthy and energetic, so you can enjoy their presence day in and day out. Cat food is the most important thing to keep your pet alive and happy, not by only satisfying hunger, but also receiving vital nutrients to promote healthy growth and to avoid vitamin deficiency. One vital nutrient they need to eat is amino acid taurine found in meat. This helps keep their vision sharp and focused. There are two different types of cat food, one being dry and the other wet. Kibble, or dry food, is the most common and comes in bags ranging from 1lb. to 10lbs. Extra vitamins and nutrients are added to the mix after it is baked to make sure it revitalizes the animals. Wet food comes in cans and is about 80% moisture. The food generally comes in can sizes between 3 oz and 13 oz. Some may be perishable, so make sure you read if they need to be refrigerated or not. Specialty foods are also available for cats that included vegetarian and vegan mixes with added nutrients that they need. Popular food brands include Iams, Friskies, Meow Mix, and Whiskas, although your cat will know which they like best. Pet owners can purchase products at grocery, discount, and pet supply stores.
