Cats are the ultimate hunters

Who they were

They’re patient,
they wait, they strike

They stalk their prey very quietly and patiently. Whether it’s the jungle or deserts or the tundra, they are the apex predator. They drop low, eyes focused on the target. They wait for their prey to become vulnerable or make a mistake. Then with lightning speed, they strike.

In the wild,
they are efficient hunters

In the wild, there is no better hunter than the cat. Cats have even been the cause of extinctions and near-extinctions of a variety of species across the globe. It’s their extreme efficiency that has made them one of the most fearsome predators in the world. It’s also the reason why they’ve never had to adapt their diet to anything other than meat.

Cats are carnivores

Cats need meat

Cats are obligate carnivores. That means eating meat isn’t just an option, it’s a requirement. Their bodies cannot process starches, carbohydrates, and vegetables efficiently. Cats get their essential nutrients and a significant portion of their moisture intake from meat. There is no such thing as a vegan cat. It’s just not how their bodies are wired.

Their dietary needs are no different in the home than in the wild

Even though cats have been with humans for thousands of years, their bodies still have not adapted to a carbohydrate diet. In fact, for most of their history with us, it has been as hunters of vermin. Cats were never fed a starchy diet, we never had to because they got all of their food from what they caught, and they’re at catching food. Cats today have the same dietary needs as cats then. Foods that are high in animal protein is not just what cats want, it’s what cats need.

Cats need Superior Nutrition

Cats exercise too

There’s nothing more lovely than watching cats at play. Like athletes, play isn’t just for fun. When we watch cats climb, run, chase, and pounce, we are reminded that their play is actually training. You can see the focus in their eyes. For cats, play is serious business.

They require proper fuel

For serious training, you need serious fuel. Cats are no different. They may sleep a lot, but this is their way of conserving energy. Cats are still in wild mode, and they’re always ready for sudden action. Superior Nutrition means high quality proteins, healthy vegetables, vitamins and minerals, and other hypoallergenic nutrients. Superior Nutrition means life.
