How to Choose Best Cat Food

My cat, Goma is a white cat with one yellow and blue eye. As you may know (that I did not know when I adapted her) white cat tends to have generic weakness. As expected, when Goma was small, she had numerous problems such as constant eye secretion, blocked nose etc. That was the time I started looking into what is the best cat food I could provide for her.

There are plenty of choices when it comes to Best food for Cats, also thanks to Internet, you can mail order pretty much any type of food for cats. But before you pick, you may want to know basic information and so can make informed decision. Three main types are: Raw, Homemade and Organic.

Raw cat meal is literally Raw meat you get from butcher shop. You want to make sure the quality of the meat you are getting. Preferably organic, if not ones without use of hormones and pesticides. The parts you want to get are muscle meat not organs and livers. Chicken neck is a great for snacking as well as teeth cleaning. It is said to be fairly close to what Cats used to eat.

Homemade Choice is something you can prepare with the meat mentioned above. The difference is you add some heat so it is cooked therefore you want to add some vitamins and additional supplement for it. It can be cooked in a butch and freeze it. The advantage of homemade cat food is that you know exactly what the ingredient is and can be economical than buying commercially prepared cat food.

Organic option is pre-packed cat food with organic ingredients. With all sort of pet food recalls, if you are buying can or dry food, you want to make sure that ingredients are safe and natural.

These are main three types of Best Cat Food styles available. It can be confusing but I guess if you can remember the fundamentals: Cats are Carnivores. No matter which style of food you provide, Cats needs intake of Omega-3 fatty acids, Taurine, Selenium, Vitamins A, C, K, D and E, Calcium, Gamma Linolenic Acid, L-Glutamine, DL-Methionine, B Complex (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12).

The rest depends on your time (and your devotion) and budget.
