Wet Cat Food

Wet cat food is one of the most nutritious meal options for cats and kittens. While dogs are omnivorous, cats are carnivores, which means that they require meat in their diets. Wet cat food contains a high animal protein content, which is important for all carnivores. The greatest canned food advantage, however, is its high moisture content. Water is vital to your cat's health. Since wild prey contains as much as 75% water, cats have evolved to acquire much of their water needs from food. If you do choose wet cat food for your pet, keep in mind that it requires refrigeration after opening and should not be left out all day the way kibble can be.
