Do cats need raw meat? We believe yes, perhaps even more so than dogs! A bold statement, but true. Unlike dogs, cats are obligate carnivores, meaning they require fresh meat and an essential nutrient called taurine to survive.
When eating raw, cats can get all the meat they need in a more natural way – in other words, closer to the diet they would choose to eat in the wild.
We’ve taken it upon ourselves to create the purrfect fresh, raw recipes for cats that we can, and we can’t wait to reveal all! If you want to be the first to know about our pawsome fresh cat food, be sure to sign up here.
Some of the most obvious benefits of fresh, raw feeding for cats include:
Because your cat will digest the majority of the food they eat, their whole digestive system improves and becomes more efficient.
Better urinary health
It’s obvious that there is more moisture in fresh, raw meat than biscuits/kibble. Cats have extremely sensitive kidneys and hydration is vitally important. As they take most of their water from their food, you can understand why raw is so much better.
Better weight management
No wheat, grains or fillers mean lower-carb food.
Healthier skin and coat
The full complement of nutrients means full, stronger, and shinier fur. You can also expect less moulting – so fewer hairballs!
Wonder why your cat takes a nap almost every chance they get? The carb-rich processed food makes them sleepy. A raw diet will promote your cat’s metabolism and stamina.
Smaller and less odorous poops that biodegrade quickly
We are obsessed with poo. Raw poo that is. This is because it’s just nicer all round than any other kind of poo. On a raw diet your cat may poo less frequently because they are digesting and using almost everything they eat, rather than pooing out all those wasted fillers.
