Are you a pet lover? In my home, we have a full house. We have cats, we have a very ornery Yorkie named Trouble, who you will meet later in this post...She's living up to her name, as usual, of course. We also have a Bearded Dragon named Biscuit. He is my daughter's baby, as she's a reptile person.
Part of the way we like to pamper our pets is by choosing only the best food for them. Natural ingredients, high protein content, and low/no grain are things we typically look for when we're choosing food for our cats and dog.
Biscuit the Beardie? He gets crickets and Superworms and tons of greens. ~Cringes~
Anyway, recently I learned about a great brand of high-quality pet food that offers the perfect nutrition for your perfect pets. SquarePet is leading the way when it comes to creating innovative, nutritionally complete, natural pet foods that our fur-babies love.
I got to try their Turkey & Chicken Formula Cat Food, and I'd love to tell you more about it, and about why choosing the right food for your feline friends is so crucial to their overall health, longevity, and well-being.
Cats are obligate carnivores, meaning they must eat meat in their diet to stay healthy. However, domestic cats have evolved to handle increased levels of carbs in their diets.
So, then why are diets high in carbs bad for cats? It appears that when cats are fed foods that are higher in carbohydrates, they develop cravings for them – just like people do for fast food. Studies have also shown that cats will select their diet on a macronutrient profile, analyzing ingredients such as protein, fat and carbs. Cats, given the choice, chose diets heavier in proteins and fat over those higher in carbs. What does this tell us? It tells us that cats are not just carnivores by choice but by genetics.
Another downfall of feeding your cat a diet heavy in carbohydrates is that coupled with a lack of exercise it can lead to obesity. Feline obesity can harm your cat’s health in a myriad of ways but also predisposes your cat to diabetes mellitus, or feline diabetes.
Besides helping to prevent diabetes, feeding your cat a diet high in meat and low in carbs has actually been shown as an option to help manage feline diabetes. These results are based on a lower carb diet promoting weight loss while lowering postprandial blood glucose levels. And this high meat, low carb feeding also allows your cat to shed unwanted pounds while maintaining muscle tone.
Now, all science aside, you want your cat to enjoy and want to eat their meals. That’s where the health benefits sometimes don’t outweigh the fact that your cat won’t eat the healthiest food available. Here’s the good news: high meat, low carb diets are extremely palatable to most cats due to what is needed for their physiology.
SquarePet’s nutrition helps to ensure your cat stays healthy, avoids diabetes, and retains more of their muscle mass as they age. We understand you have many options for cat food, however, let us explain why SquarePet is the best option:
My kitties really love this food, and had no "catitude" at all when I offered it to them. Noodles and Pringles both happily ate this, and it didn't seem to bother their tummies one bit. Noodles can be a brat when it comes to eating, so I consider the fact that she didn't turn her nose at new food to be a very good sign.
Another thing happened with our SquarePet introduction, and I just have to include it. My Yorkie, Trouble, that I mentioned at the head of this piece? She decided she wanted to see what all the fuss was about, and she insisted on trying some of the cat food when no one was looking.
We caught her in the act.
I guess I will be purchasing some of SquarePet's Dog Foods to try with her, since she's certainly not a cat!
Anyway, if you're looking for a premium quality pet food that will please ALL your pets? Definitely give SquarePet a shot!
