The truth behind high protein cat food.

Cats are obligate carnivores. That means they need high protein cat food to thrive, not survive. In fact, cats have a limited ability to digest carbohydrates and plant ingredients.

Is all high protein cat food made the same?

Not all high protein cat foods are made equal. The truth is, many brands shout about their protein quantity, but are oddly silent when it comes to their quality.

Many industry standard cat foods that market themselves as ‘high protein’ are actually packed with soy and corn proteins. Trouble is, cat’s aren’t built to digest those ingredients in large amounts.

KatKin’s fresh meat quantity is 100%. And as for our quality, we only ever use premium cuts of Fresh meat, exactly the same as you’d get from your local butcher.

So when it comes to quality vs. quantity, don’t pick one. Choose both.

Why is high protein cat food important?

High protein cat food is important because your feline is a carnivore by nature.

Wild at heart
Domestic cats haven’t changed much from their wild predecessors. Cats are hunters and in nature, they eat mice, rabbits, birds and more. Domestic cats like ours still have the same high protein needs. Which is why opting for quality, high protein cat food can benefit them greatly.

Built for meat
A cat’s metabolism is designed for a strict meat-based diet. They aren't like herbivores or omnivores who are able to synthesise essential amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). A cat’s ability to do this is limited. They get their essential amino acids from their cat food.

High protein cat food is essential for health

Cats are unique in that their liver enzymes are constantly breaking down proteins for energy and to maintain their blood glucose levels. If they don’t get enough protein from food, their bodies break down their muscles to try and meet their protein and amino acid needs.

What's so good about fresh cat food?

Fresh cat food can provide your feline a range of benefits. They include:

Health Benefits

High in protein from 100% Fresh premium meat.

Luscious fur

High in keratin for healthy fur coats and skin

Improved digestion

Easily digestible for happy bellies & less poop to scoop.

Energy Booster

Boosts energy & aids natural weight management.

What are the benefits of high protein cat meals?

Cats need protein. Full stop.

Proteins are the building blocks of healthy muscles and organs. A cat’s hormones, immune system and metabolism also can’t function properly without it.

Amino acids are compounds essential to a cat’s everyday bodily functions. Low levels of amino acids can lead to serious health problems.

Some amino acids are classed as ‘essential’. That means they can’t automatically be made inside the body. They have to come from the food cats eat.

Taurine is one essential amino acid which plays a crucial role in vision, heart function, reproduction and helps maintain a healthy immune system.

The high protein cat food from KatKin nourishes your feline from the inside out. It supports their lean muscle mass and promotes healthy skin and coat.

The deal on single source proteins

Every cat is different. That’s why we offer a number of single source meat protein recipes which are specifically tailored to cats that may be allergic to a particular meat protein.

Au revoir allergies, no more having to carefully study ingredients lists on the back of cat food pouches.

"Skin condition solved! My cat suffers from Eosinophilic Granuloma Complex, which causes constant itching, dry skin and cracked paw pads. On KatKin, he is a different cat. He is so playful, full of energy. His coat is thick and glossy and he looks SO healthy and happy."
