Your Cat Is Not A Vegetarian: Cats are classed as obligate carnivores, so that means that although there would have been significant amounts of plant matter in their ancestral diets back in the Middle Eastern deserts; the vast majority of their nutrition needs to come from the meat, bone and organs of their prey animals.
Cats and Diets - Means Meat & Fish!
For a healthy, happy cat, diet is very important. If you have a fat, stressed cat who's listless or always scrounging food, you may need to re-assess your feeding habits. Too many well publicised cat foods are bulked out with grains which really aren't the best source of additional nutrients. The most healthy cat food is derived mainly from meat and fish which helps them avoid health problems.
Your cat needs to eat approximately the same mixture of meat, fish, organs and bone that it would have consumed in its ancestral habitat! Even if you are vegetarian; it's essential to accept your cat's nature. The most crucial element from a cat's meat based diet is the amino acid taurine, which plays a huge part in maintaining your cat's circulation, vision and immune system! The highest concentrations of taurine are available from meat and fish. If your cat's diet is deficient in taurine the implications for cat health could be:
- heart failure
- retinal degeneration and consequent blindness
- fur loss
- tooth decay

Where Do Cats Get Their Water From on a Dried Food Diet?
Cats apparently live slightly dehydrated lives – which is a feature of their ancestors' evolution in the Middle Eastern deserts. Supplying a dry cat food diet would seem counter intuitive at first and might lead you to think that you will create a problem for your pet. So, you need to make a small but distinct effort to ensure your cat stays hydrated! Because cats won't drink in the same place they eat, simply moving the water bowl to another room is almost always necessary. Some cats like to drink from a running source such as a dripping kitchen tap. Water fountains or some other trickling water source can encourage your pet to drink.
It is well to be aware that one of the giveaway signs of dehydration includes listlessness. On the other hand, a cat who seems to be drinking excessively can be showing symptoms of kidney failure or potentially - feline diabetes.
Misunderstanding your cat's dietary needs can lead to a variety of other ailments and diseases that have become increasingly common amongst both over indulged and neglected domestic cats in recent times. These can include obesity, other kidney & liver conditions, parasite infestations, arthritic joints and decaying teeth.
