Benefits of fresh cat food for Egyptian Mau cats

You can notice a range of health benefits for your Egyptian Mau cat if you feed them with fresh cat food daily. These can include:

  • Improved digestion

  • More energy

  • Shinier, healthy coats

Like all cats, Egyptian Mau cats are obligate carnivores, meaning they receive their nutrients from meat in their diet. The industry standard cat food however uses little meat, of poor quality. This is then cooked at high temperatures so it lasts on a shelf for months, even years. This is no good for your cat and needs to change.
