Most of my working life has been in the product development and marketing of food for humans.  And as I am sure you are aware, when you walk into a traditional grocery store you are hit with a multitude of products, everything from items with ingredient labels that look like they might have been created in a lab to the products with clean labels; meaning they are produced with natural ingredients.  In fact, there are so many products in a larger format grocery store, a new product only has about 3 seconds to grab the attention of  the consumer.

Which Protein is Best for your Cat? Ask an Iams Expert Here!

What protein is best for your cat

Do you wonder what protein is best for your cat?

Food trends come and go. Many humans like to mix up their diets by trying a variety of  foods and flavors.  My mom is a foodie. She has developed award winning specialty food products  and even now that she is a zoologist  she still likes to  learn about interesting new ingredients  and innovative foods.  Just ask my dad, you probably never want to go to the grocery store with her.  She really likes to  stalk the shelves for what’s new.  But we cats, well we aren’t concerned with pink himalayan sea salt or agnolotti with celery-root puree. We just want protein.

Cats are obligate carnivores and we need to eat protein that contains 10 specific amino acids that we can’t make on our own. These essential amino acids are known as the building blocks for important biologically active compounds and proteins. If we become deficient even of just one essential amino acid, it can lead to serious health problems. Your cat’s menu should be made up almost entirely of protein sources from meat.  This is why we cats are always on the prowl for the amino acids in protein.
