What is the Catkins Diet


The Catkins Diet is what your cat would normally eat in their natural wild world, such as small animals like birds and mice. Most domesticated in-door felines eat foods that their pet owners dish out to them on a plate, like dry cat food. If you are a cat owner that fills your cat's dish full of dry crunchy food in the morning and you leave it there during the day while you are at work, then your kitty will leisurely pick at the dry food throughout the course of the day. If that happens then there could be a number of health related issues that can arise from giving your cat dry cat food, such as dehydration, or equally fatal like feline diabetes.

Dry cat food can lead to many such chronic diseases. The manufactures say on their packages that their dry food has 100% nutrients for your feline, which is not the case at all. The dry cat food is made up of different kinds of grains which the manufacturer says gives the cat its necessary protein, fat, minerals and vitamins to your cat. But, did you know that dry cat food is made up of carbohydrates and cats require meals of high amounts of protein and because they are carnivores they need meat. Cats require certain nutrients that can only be found in animal tissues, nutrients like taurine, arginine, and amino acids that are only found in meat.

The Catkins Diet is a high meat, protein diet and does not include anything to do with dry manufactured cat foods. Dry cat food has 40 to 70 percent carbohydrate ingredients where a cat should have no more than 10 percent carbohydrates. Cats have a difficult time digesting carbohydrates.

Cats that are on the catkins diet have a closer diet to their nature then cats not on the catkins diet. If your cat stays on a dry food diet, then as I said before, could develop feline diabetes and also could develop a disease called Fatty Liver disease where felines have a protein deficiency. Kitty's can also become dehydrated because dry cat food has 10 percent less moisture intake. Cats do not drink much water and if they are not getting all of the moisture that they would get from eating canned cat food then they could slip into dehydration.

Feeding your feline a dry cat food diet instead of the natural diet, the Catkin’s Diet, could lead you into a boat of trouble in your near future. I know it is cheaper to just lay out some kibbles into a pet dish and leave it at that, but what you are really doing is slowly causing possible fatal diseases in your cat’s future, which will cost you way more than canned cat food. Stick with the catkins diet.
