Cats are obligate carnivores, which means that they have a biological requirement for certain nutrients found only in animal-derived foods. In the wild, cats would typically eat a diet that is primarily made up of small prey such as mice, birds, and other small mammals, which provide them with the necessary nutrients to survive.

Domestic cats have similar dietary requirements, and it is recommended that they be fed a diet that is high in protein and low in carbohydrates. The protein should come from a high-quality source, such as meat or fish, and should be the primary ingredient in the food. Cats also require certain nutrients that can only be obtained from animal-based foods, such as taurine, which is important for heart and eye health.

Cats also need a diet that is high in moisture, since they are not naturally inclined to drink a lot of water. Canned food or fresh meat can provide this moisture. Wet food is a great way to make sure your cat is getting enough water in its diet.

Additionally, cats need a diet that has the right balance of vitamins and minerals to support their overall health. A veterinarian can help you choose the right food for your cat.

It is also important to note that cats have unique dietary needs based on their age, breed, health status, and lifestyle, so it is always best to consult with a veterinarian to determine the best diet for your individual cat.
