Let a Mouse Guide Your Cat Nutrition Decisions

Dry foods and many canned foods are packed with ingredients that are wholly inappropriate for carnivores and contribute to disease. Plant matter, carbohydrates, vegetables, and fillers are not health-supporting ingredients for cats.

A mouse, on the other hand, offers a pretty complete and near-perfect nutrition package for a cat. Meat, bone, bioavailable essential fatty acids, ample taurine, vitamins, and key minerals.

So why not do our best to ‘build a mouse’ and feed it to a cat? Or take a second look at the food you’re feeding and see how close to mouse-ness it is?

A Mouse-Related Note: Prey to Play

To be sure, we are almost always making some compromises when it comes to honoring the true nature of a cat. A cat’s natural predatory drive — their instinctive craving to hunt down and kill prey — isn’t satisfied when we simply serve up a mouse-inspired dish of food. Interactive play is a vital part of keeping these furry little killing machines from the boredom and behavioral issues that can compromise physical and mental well being. I highly recommend reading Ingrid King’s online essay about the importance of play.
