Benefits of fresh food for Cornish Rex cats
The Cornish Rex will receive a number of benefits when fed daily with fresh cat food, including:
Shiny, healthy coats
Like other cats, the Cornish Rex breed are obligate carnivores, meaning they evolved to receive their nutrients from meat. Yet many well-known brands uses very little meat which is poor quality and cooked at high temperatures to last on a shelf for months, even years. This needs to change.
