About LaPerm cats

The LaPerm cat is a relatively new breed. And we welcome them to the club with open arms. Luckily for us, LaPerms appreciate a good cuddle! The first known LaPerm kitten was born little over 40 years ago in 1982 in the United States.

This sweet cat was named Curly due to her unique coat of curly hair. Her descendants share a similar coat and it is this soft, wavy hair that LaPerms are famous for. They are also known for their friendly personalities and loud purring. A great addition to the home, LaPerms are charming inside and out.

Chatty, devoted and playful, these cats fit easily into any home. They love to be kept in pairs so they always have someone to play with. Double the trouble but more to love.

Benefits of fresh cat food for LaPerm Cats

All cats can benefit from eating fresh food daily. Your LaPerm is no exception. Some of the changes you might see after swapping to fresh cat food include:

● More energy

● Better digestion

● A shiny, healthy coat

Like all cats, LaPerms are obligate carnivores. This means that they are genetically suited to getting the nutrition they need from meat. Their sharp teeth are for tearing meat; not grinding plants. Their digestive tract is shorter, because it’s built for meat. Their saliva and their liver don’t break down plants like herbivores do. Yet the industry standard often overlooks this. Instead they use little and poor quality meat in their cat food and bulk it out with grains.

At KatKin, we are demanding better. Our fresh cat food is formulated by vets and made with 100% premium ingredients. Each of our recipes is nutritionally complete and tailored to help your cat live their best nine lives. Switch fearlessly and try fresh cat food with your LaPerm today.
