Articles on Cat Foods
Ann N. Martin's book, "Food Pets Die For," was a painful epiphany to all who read it.
Several years later, the pet food recall scandal of 2007 was a tragic eye-opener to many pet owners who habitually had purchased the cheapest foods available. Even those of us who had tried to give our cats the best foods we could afford were left vulnerable to the deceitful practices of importers and Chinese producers of melamine-"enhanced" vegetable proteins. These articles will help you understand more about your cat's nutritional needs, the cat food industry, and what exactly is under those cat food labels.

Feeding Cats Raw
Those of us who have made an in-depth study of the nutritional requirements of our cats, who are obligate carnivores, agree that the best food for cats is as closely aligned as possible to the food they would eat in the wild: namely raw muscle meat, taurine-rich organs, and bone. Pioneers in raw feeding soon developed raw food recipes which can either be prepared "from scratch" or with the more newly-developed supplements.
