More on Food

Whilst there are raw brands of cat food out there, most of them come with problems:

  1. invariably they include veggies and fruit - for a carnivore - who has no ability to digest or utilise plant based food? (This is very different from the grass and herbs cats use as medicine.)
  2. invariably supplements are added, but as they are the synthetic ones made in a laboratory, often from petro-chemicals, they can't be termed food by any stretch of the imagination. They are toxic and harmful especially when used over an extended period. (These 'supplements' MAY offer some support to chronically deficient beings if used over a SHORT period.)
  3. cats need to crunch up on whole bones to keep their teeth clean and to massage their gums. By adding ground bones to the food, certainly helps supply the essential macro minerals, but does nothing for the health of their teeth. LOOK AFTER THOSE SPIKY TEETH!
  4. Whilst frozen food is much more nutritious than cooked food, some damage still occurs. Try in include some fresh meat into the diet every week.

These are the good ones I know about.

Australia (east) - Organic Paws in Queensland
USA - Sourly Raw really stands out as understanding who cats are. My Pet Carnivore are good too.
Canada - Carnivora and EvolutionRaw

However all still need the addition of whole bones to crunch on for oral health. Please be aware that I don't necessarily keep up with any changes these brands may make, so the onus is still on you to check them out.

In Times of Food Shortages

In these uncertain times of food shortages, I suggest you stock up on freeze dried raw brands. However please check the ingredients carefully for the addition of veggies, fruit and additives as these are unsuitable at best and harmful at worst, for cats.

I don't believe freeze dried raw food is as good as fresh or freshly frozen meat, but certainly they're not as bad as canned or dry food. So stock your freezer first!


Buying from farmers markets or local farmers makes more sense. They are more inclined to look after you than supermarkets/grocery stores, where you're just a number.

The food is more likely to be better quality and fresher. Supermarkets tend to keep their products a long time.

I've had good feedback from SevenSons in America.

Shaded Grove Farm Market in Mississippi serves half of America.

EatWild lists farms who are likely to look after you, also in America.

Should You Microchip Your Cat?

There are pros and cons about microchipping. This excellent article covers just about everything about them, even though it focuses on dogs.

I'm no great fan of supplements. Most on the market today are synthetic, often made from petro-chemicals. In no way are they food.

I prefer to eat good food, where the REAL supplements come from.

However, algae is a good supplement as long as it comes from clean water. Algae is also acceptable for cats, unlike so many on the market. Here's a good one

Brands of Raw Cat Food I Do Not Support
- With Reasons

About Supplements

Natural nutrients are contained in food, so the ingredient list just includes the food.
Synthetic (often from petro-chemicals) or processed (stripped away from the whole) nutrients are listed as that 'nutrient'.
These supplements aren't natural and can cause health problems.

Good quality food doesn't need extra supplements.

About Fruit and Vegetables

Cats are true carnivores. They don't have the capacity to digest or utilise plant based food.
The plants they sometimes graze on, such as grass, are for medicinal purposes only.

Vital Essentials Raw have two major problems that I can see from their ingredient list:

  1. They don't include crushed bones in the food. Meat needs bones to digest.
  2. Nutrients are named and added.
