The experts at Doctors Foster and Smith say sufficient protein from the right food sources is critical for cat health. Cats may be domesticated but their hearts and digestive systems remain wild. They should eat as though they still roam free, which means a diet rich in protein from muscle meat. The vet a, a fierce proponent of canned food, ranks poultry above beef as the best protein source and is wary of fish due to allergies, toxins, and its addictive qualities. Animal experts frown on the inclusion of meat and fish byproducts (e.g., bone, blood, brain) and say plant-based protein should play a marginal role in a cat's daily intake. Grains and carbohydrates, including complex fruits and vegetables, should be kept to less than 10 percent of their diets.
