Inflammatory ingredients: Anything the cat can’t use (read: that’s not meat or moisture) could provoke an immune response. The cat’s immune system will check out such things, and even after they’ve seen it before, that doesn’t mean that the immune system won’t respond again. The inflammation is mostly because of this process. The number 1 and 2 ingredients that are super common in commercial cat food that cause this reaction are corn and powdered cellulose (which is paper).
Anti-inflammatory: Omega fatty acids are a great anti-inflammatory, so having some fish in the diet is beneficial, the smaller size fish the better. Our favorite is sardines. Cats can even have the sardines that are sold for humans in the grocery store as long as they’re packed in water. Others include salmon and bone broth.
In addition to these boons, getting him on a more natural diet, you’ll see his poop become less stinky, he’ll be happier because he won’t feel bogged down or dehydrated, and cats who are indoor only on a diet of canned and/or raw tend to live 19-22 years! Our goal is to educate you in the ways of a cat, to help your kitty live the most happy life he can, and to help you and your kitty stay together as long as possible.
