Why purina offers a wide range of cat food

We care as much about cats as you do, and we know that you want the best for your feline friend. When we develop our cat foods, we spend a lot of time talking to cat lovers and they remind us time and time again that each pet is unique in their own way.

Some cats prefer a crunchy texture, while others want a wet food for a more luxurious lunch, or maybe your cat is one that likes a bit of both! You may have one cat who is a big fan of chicken, and another who will only eat salmon. We know we need to cater for a broad range of tastes, so we’ve developed a collection of products to suit the palates and preferences of every animal.

What your cat needs

You may have asked your fellow cat owners “what is the best cat food for my pet?” but the answer isn’t quite that simple. Cats need a careful balance of nutrients to help them to stay healthy and happy throughout the different stages of their lives.

Kittens have a lot of growing up to do in a short space of time – by just six months old, they will have already reached 75% of their adult size! When we formulate food for kittens, we need to provide them with the right nutritional support to allow for this growth spurt, helping them to be big and strong while still being gentle on their small tummies.

Once they’re fully-fledged adult felines, their needs change. Adult cats need a whopping 41 essential nutrients from their food, so we make sure our carefully balanced adult formulas are packed with all the goodness they need.

As cats approach their senior years, their needs change again, so we have special formulas for the more mature feline. Finally, some of our four-legged friends have special dietary needs, because of illness or allergies, so we make sure that we provide formulas that cater to their specific needs too.

How to give your cat a complete diet

Felix As Good As It Looks

Unlike us, cats can’t scour the shelves of the supermarket to find all of the ingredients they need to make a balanced meal. Therefore it’s up to pet owners to make sure they choose a carefully balanced complete formula cat food that has all the necessary nutrients for their cat’s life stage.

Purina cat food complete formulas include all the vitamins and minerals your pet needs, so you won’t have to worry about adding any additional supplements.

While we’re busy taking care of your cat’s nutrition, you can feel confident that their nutritional needs are catered for and you can focus on the important things in your cat’s day, like playing hunt the catnip and catch the fishy!
