What Your Cats Should Eat In All Seasons (Autumn, summer, winter, spring) part 2

The World For Animals With You Again In Part 2 Of THE FIRST PART   This Article Is Very Important For Cats Breeder

Cats are distinguished by their prominent fangs, curved claws, and a pair of hefty cheek teeth (the carnassials) for shearing meat off the bone. Cats only have 30 teeth, compared to dogs’ 42. They don’t have any chewing teeth, like the flat-topped molars found in dogs, bears, and humans.

Why do you have to make your own cat food when you can readily buy it in pet stores? If you consider your pets as family, you will think about their health and nutrition as well.

Give your pet treats and meals that are not only nutritious but also delicious. There are proper ways to make cat food at home. All recipes are intended for a balanced diet. Before you begin substituting or omitting any ingredient from each recipe, make sure that you understand your pet’s health requirement. A good talk to your cat’s veterinarian will make you understand more about the matter.

                             What are the big benefits of making your own cat food?

1 – The Carnivorous Cat

Cats are obligate (strict or true) carnivores, meaning they require certain nutrients that they cannot synthesize which are only found in meat. The very name carnivore means devourer of flesh.

Cats large and small, wild and domestic need to eat meat as their main source of nutrients. Dogs, bears, and raccoons are all facultative (optional) carnivores or omnivores, meaning they can and do eat both meat and plant matter.

However, when given a choice, they will always choose meat if it is available. A cat is solely designed to hunt, kill, eat, and process meat. Through millions of years of evolution, felids have developed unique characteristics of anatomy, physiology, metabolism, and behavior indicative of obligate carnivores

2 – Nutrition And Diseases 

You’ve probably heard it said that nutrition is the foundation of health. That’s certainly true, but even so, most people don’t get exactly how important nutrition truly is.  Most people just tell you all about the food, but until you get why you need to know all that, it’s just so many words.

So I’m going to start with the most common nutrition-related diseases in cats:
what they are, why they occur, and what to do about them. Even if your cat doesn’t currently have any of these conditions, you may still want to check it out so you know how to prevent them.
Without “good groceries,” 

the body can’t heal. It can’t even maintain itself properly. And if they can’t maintain a high level of health, cells malfunction and die, then tissue malfunctions and dies, then organs malfunction and fail—and then you’ve got a real mess! The tricky part is that nutritional problems are not usually noticeable—until they progress to the point where the overt disease occurs. Often this isn't until much later in a cat's life.

Here are the top ten reasons why cats get taken to the veterinarian; those that
have nutrition- or diet-related component are checked

Top Cat Health Conditions

10. Skin Allergies

3 – Proteins & Amino Acids

Proteins are a large group of nitrogen-bearing organic compounds that are essential constituents of living cells. They consist of polymers (chains) of amino acids, the building blocks of tissue, and necessary for the proper formation of hormones, antibodies, skin, hair, muscles and cells that make up many other organ systems. In addition, amino acids are used to make enzymes, which along with vitamins and minerals, are necessary for proper metabolism. Generally speaking, animal-based proteins have a complete amino acid profile; composed of all amino acids. When a cat consumes a diet containing animal protein, the protein is broken into its amino acids and these are absorbed in the small intestine. The amino acids are then reassembled into a different order, making the specific proteins the body needs. Extra amino acids are broken down and used for energy and/or expelled from the body.

Of the required amino acids, cats are able to synthesize alanine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamic acid, glutamine, glycine, proline, selenocysteine, serine, tyrosine, and ornithine (non-essential amino acids) and are unable to synthesize 10 of these (essential amino acids). These 10 amino acids need to be supplemented by the diet.

Essential alpha-amino acids                                                       


          Essential Amino 
 Sulfonic Acid                                                                                                                                                 

Conditionally Essential 


When one or more of these amino acids are missing from the diet, food intake typically decreases and weight loss occurs.
