What are the benefits of wet food for cats? Read how my cat stays healthy and hydrated eating wet food with complete nutrition every day.
Cats are the best pets. They don’t require a lot of attention, just a clean litter box, a little bit of playtime, and fresh food and water. I talk about my cat, Mcmuffin, a lot because he actually is so awesome, most people want a cat after spending time with him.
Mcmuffin is particular, though, and he doesn’t like everyone and everything. He prefers female strangers over males and is very particular about food. He loves wet cat food, especially Purina brands. I think Mcmuffin’s wet food love is actually what makes my cat so healthy.
Did you know wet cat food is important for a cat’s diet? Wet cat food provides three crucial health benefits for cats!
All animals need water, but most cats don’t drink enough. Mcmuffin can’t stand his bowl of water next to his food bowl, but I know he is thirsty because he chases us from bathroom sink to kitchen sink, begging for a sip of water. We know he is hydrated though because he eats wet food. Mcmuffin’s favorite wet foods are a variety of Fancy Feast or Purina ONE cat food. By incorporating wet cat food into your cat’s diet, you can improve his overall hydration. He will also be more energetic and fun loving if he is happily hydrated.
Another benefit of wet cat food is how it provides complete nutrition for a healthy cat. Sometimes Mcmuffin throws up after eating other food too quickly. I would be worried he wasn’t getting all of his vitamins and minerals in his diet, but he loves his wet food. Wet cat food is easily digestible and contains all the same essential nutrients as dry food, like Iron, Zinc, and Biotin.
If you want your cat to live a long, happy life chasing mice or staring at birds out the window, he needs protein. Protein helps promote, maintain and support lean muscle mass. Did you know a cat loses lean muscle mass as he ages? With wet cat food made high in protein, you can give your cat’s lean muscle mass a boost.
Our cat is more like a family member than just a pet, and we want him to live a long happy life. Mcmuffin shows us when he isn’t happy with his food choice by not eating it (or swatting the person who feeds him). I’m happy to feed him what he loves, wet cat food, knowing that it’s beneficial to his health.
