Cat Food Advisor- How to Choose the Best Cat Food – 10 Best Cat Foods!

How to Choose Best Cat Foods

There are approximately 95.6 million cats living in American households (National Pet Owners’ Survey 2017). Every one of these cuddly felines need to be fed. The question is… How to choose the best cat food for your pussy cat? In this article Cat Food Advisor delves into this question.

We have also reviewed what we consider to be the 10 best cat foods available on Amazon to help you decide on what’s best for your cat.

What Do Wild Cats Eat?

How to Choose the Best Cat Food
Wild cats are carnivorous hunters of small prey.

First up, domesticated cats are equal to wild cats in their digestive make-up and their nutritional requirements. The diet of a wild cat is mainly made up of small rodents, such as rats and mice. Other common prey are rabbits, moles, shrews and birds. However, these cats will prey on almost any small animal, such as large insects, lizards, frogs and snakes. Those wild cats that are game to get wet will even go to the effort to catch and eat fish.

What Nutrition is Important for a Healthy Cat?

Cats are carnivores. They are meat eaters- plain and simple! They require protein from meat for good vision, a strong heart and muscle development, and a healthy reproductive system. Meat also contains moderate amounts of fat, and a minimal amount of carbohydrates. Domesticated cats require these general proportions today, just as their wild cousins do. Cats also require many other nutrients, including vitamins, fatty acids, minerals and amino acids.

Is It Safe to Feed Your Cat Raw Meat?

Whilst it is quite OK to feed your cat a commercial wet or dry food, Cat Food Advisor suggests that you can offer variety in your cat’s diet by feeding it cooked or raw meat.

It is important to ensure that the meat you feed your cat is fresh, as spoilt raw meat, raw fish and raw eggs, can contain bacteria that trigger food poisoning. In addition, an enzyme in raw fish destroys thiamine, which is an essential B vitamin for cats. A lack of thiamine can cause neurological problems. Therefore, it is advisable to not to overfeed your cat raw fish.

So, If Not Raw Meat, What Should You Feed Your Cat?

Cooked beef, turkey, chicken, and small amounts of lean deli meats are a great way to give cats their nutritional requirements.

Commercially, there are two types of cat foods available- wet cat food and dry cat food. These commercial products vary widely, and therefore require looking carefully at their ingredients and where their ingredients have been sourced from.

Many cheaper cat foods will be bulked up with fillers. Cat Food Advisor has looked into fillers- often these fillers are not a natural part of a cat’s diet. You want to avoid them. Be aware of grain or corn fillers. Also steer clear of GMO ingredients and products that are excessively fatty, salty or they have added sugar.

Dry Cat Food or Wet Cat Food?

It seems that most cats prefer wet cat food over dry cat food, although there are always exceptions. Wet cat food is closer to what wild cats eat- in texture and water content.

Dry food is fine if it is complete and balanced. Dry food generally is less expensive than canned food, and once dished up to your cat, may stay fresher for longer. Wet food gives additional moisture for cats. If only fed dry food, cats would need to be provided with lots of fresh water. This is especially so if they are prone to developing urinary tract blockages, constipation or weight problems.

Many wet foods come in three-ounce cans. Cat Food Advisor recommends to feed approximately one can a day for every three to three and a half pounds of body weight. However, ingredients within different products/brands vary and therefore feeding rates will vary. A happy, healthy cat will maintain a good weight and stay active.

For an average sized adult cat, it is recommended to feed ¼ cup of dry food morning and again in the evening. This is only a rough guide, as products vary, and so do cats!

You will know how much to feed your cat through trial and error. If your cat leaves food, then perhaps you are feeding it too much. If your cat is putting on too much weight, then ease off on its food.

Cat Food Advisor recommends mixing it up a bit for your cat, so he/she does not get bored with a mono-diet. A mixture of wet cat food, dry cat food and raw or cooked meat will keep your cat very happy.

Why Should You Get a Cat Tree?

Wouldn’t it be awesome to be a cat with a cat tree to play on?  Here are some reasons why your cats will want a cat tree:

  • A high place to sleep: Cats love to sleep in high places. A tall cat tree gives them a perch to survey the world below. Having a place cats feel safe with a vantage point will comfort them, especially if you have children or dogs in the house that encroach on your cat’s personal space.
  • Something they can scratch: Cats instinctively scratch. If you don’t provide a scratching post, they will find other things to scratch in your home, like curtains, the lounge or furniture. They scratch it to express emotions, like stress or excitement, to mark objects with their scent (they have scent glands in their paws), to remove the dead part of their nails and to get a good stretch!
  • A clean home: Cats shed fur. By having a Cat Tree, your cats will leave their fur all in one place, rather than your lounge or beds.
  • Play time: A cat tree give your cats a play arena with tunnels, platforms, climbing poles and toys. All this offers them exercise and activity.
  • Human entertainment: We all love to watch our cats play. Why not have them entertain you in your home!

Best Dry Cat Foods- Buyer’s Guide

A full comprehensive buyers guide is available HERE. Below are the main pointers summarized:

Cat Needs

Cats are carnivores, so high protein meat should be the main ingredient. Cats are not omnivores like us humans, so they should have very little grains or plant foods in their diet.

Complete and Balanced

Cats require a balance of protein, carbohydrates, fatty acids and amino acids, together with vitamins and minerals.

Ingredients

The ingredients matter a lot. Choose options low in fat, sugars, and grain fillers. Try natural ingredients because they promote a healthy system. Steer clear of artificial flavors, colors and preservatives.

Other Health Benefits for Food

Look for Omega fatty acid rich foods for healthy skin and coat, pre and pro biotics for digestion and immune health and fiber to help with the reduction of fur balls and a functioning digestive system.

Mix Wet and Dry Foods

Although a dry food only diet offers all the nutrients your cat requires, mixing it up with tinned wet foods and fresh raw or cooked food will add variety and taste to what your cat eats.

Price

What you pay for is often what you can expect to get in quality with a dry cat food. Foods with high quality natural ingredients will cost more as apposed to animal by-product proteins and grain fillers.

 

The Final Pick For… Best Dry Cat Foods!

We showed you our No 1 pick at the beginning of this article. For our number 2 pick it would have to be Nulo Grain Free Salmon Duck and Turkey. A little pricier than the other dry cat foods reviewed in this article, but offering the very best quality nutrition for your cat!

Best Cat Chew Toys- What You Need to Know?

Not all cat chew toys are suitable, or even safe for your cats- here are a few things to be aware of when choosing toys for your kitty:

Best Cat Chew Toys of 2021

  • Look for a chew toy with features that stimulate your cat’s senses. Toys that move, twitch, flip, crackle, squeak and rattle.
  • Cat chew toys need to be sturdy and able to bear the brunt of your kitty’s teeth and claws. Avoid toys that fall apart or are easily shredded.
  • Toys that are catnip-infused will entice your cat.
  • Toys need to be safe for your cat. You do not want them swallowing chipped paint, dyes, plastic bits, or wayward screws and staples that have broken off the toy. Cats chewing timber that has been laminated with chemical adhesives such as formaldehyde would not be a good idea either. Nor do you want your cat getting caught in tangled string.
  • Where possible, seek toys that are natural, such as silver vine sticks. These are perfect for the dental health of cats.

Is it Safe for Cats to Ingest Silver Vine Sticks or Catnip?

Though many owners wonder if cats can overdose on silver vine, there is no need to worry as silver vine is not a dangerous material, even if large amounts were chewed and swallowed. Usually, your cat will lose interest long before eating too much!

Catnip is also considered safe and non-toxic to cats.

HDP Petstages Night time Catnip Rolls

HDP Petstages Night time Catnip Rolls

Aptly named, the Petstages Night Time Catnip Rolls are a silent toy designed to satiate your cat’s need to hunt and play during the late hours at night while you are asleep without disturbing you.

The rolls are filled with a premium dried catnip that will keep your cat interested for hours. The pack comes with three rolls in each, great for multiple cats.

The product will eventually need to be thrown out as it will become damaged after much use. It is an inexpensive toy, so having spares to replace the chewed ones would make sense.

Customer feedback have some cat owners saying the hard nylon fiber, when chewed, gets sharp edges that may not be safe for cats who are vigorous chewers, therefore watching your cats when they are playing with this toy to see how they go would be a good idea.

In comes the Petstages Fresh Breath Mint toy, that not only freshens up your kitty’s breath, but helps support dental hygiene. The mint-filled dental toy has a mesh netting that helps remove soft tartar and plaque as you cat chews and bites it. This freshens your cat’s breath.

The chew sticks contains natural dried mint- no artificial colors or flavors.- so safe for your cat! Mint is similar to catnip and similar in enticing cats interest. When cats chew the toy, it releases the mint smell.

Rated 4.5 stars by over 4000 thousand customers making it a very popular choice.

I feel, that this product claims to help with dental hygiene, however, if you feel your cats have a problem with bad breath or decaying teeth, I’d suggest seeking a veterinarian, rather than relying on this toy.

Buyers Guide and Reviews of Our Top Picks for Best Automatic Cat Feeder 2021

Before giving our Top Picks for Best Automatic Cat Feeder, I’ll share a short story…

A Short Story

When growing up, our family had a pet dog who was ruled over by two cats. Sometimes we were called away from the house for a weekend, needing to leave our pets behind. Mom would always leave a large bowl of dry cat food kibbles in the house for the cats. She would leave a high window slightly open, allowing them to come inside whenever they wanted. Always, when we returned, our cats would eagerly be waiting for us. Their food would be mostly eaten, and our beloved pets were looking simply fine. However, after one such stint away, we came back to find a big scruffy tom cat had moved into the house, and our kitties had been kicked outside by him!

How Common is it For Cat Owners to Leave Their Cats Home Alone?

PetSafe Healthy Pet Automatic Cat and Dog FeederIt is very common for people to leave their cats behind when they needed to go away on short trips. I’m sure many pet owners would do as we did and leave a bowl of dry cat food behind for the cats to help themselves.

Only today, people like to be a little more sophisticated and utilize an automatic cat feeder. The number one gadget that pet owners ask me about are programmable cat-food dispensers that will feed their felines when they need to be away.

Are Automatic Cat Feeders Good for Cats?

If you ask animal behaviorists or veterinarians, they will tell you that cats, like dogs, are social animals and they don’t do so well when left alone. Their anxiety levels rise, and they can become stressed. It is not advisable to leave cats to their own means, especially if it is a single kitty on its own, however, circumstances will not always be perfect and there may be times cats need to fend for themselves.

Luckily, cats are a little more independent to dogs and leaving them home alone for short periods will not detriment them too much.

If you are unable to organize a pet-carer whilst you’re away, then an automated and programmable cat-food dispenser may be your best option.

What Are the Benefits of an Automatic Cat Feeder?

  1. The obvious benefit, as we discussed above, is for when pet owners need to leave their cats behind for short stints, they are confident that their cats will get appropriate food each day.
  2. Automatic cat feeders help deliver appropriate weight management by giving your cat the portioned feedings they require. If you have a pet who gobbles his food, a cat feeder can help slow him down. Feeders can be programmed to dispense set amounts of food over different lengths of time.
  3. For busy people, a cat feeder can save time with feeding pets by offering a convenience, especially if you are expected to be late home from work and you know the cats will be hungry!

Which Best Automatic Cat Feeder Should You Get?

Not all automatic cat feeder options are the same when it comes to usability and reliability. They are meant to dispense a specific amount of cat food at a specified time… so you don’t have too think to do it yourself.

Although this appears a perfect solution whilst you’re away, cat feeders are not always dependable, nor are they built with most pets in mind. The last thing you want is a feeder that jams whilst you are away, or one that falls over from an overzealous pet

The Best Automatic Cat Feeders will have the Following Features:

  • Stable dispensers with a solid base– cannot be tipped!
  • Sturdy fittings that cannot be broken off or chewed.
  • Easy to clean dispenser and bowls. Suitability to go in a dishwasher.
  • Easy to assemble, program and use.
  • An inbuilt day/night camera allows you to be able to monitor your pets
  • How much can the dispenser hold- needs to be enough for your pet and the length of time it will need to be fed.
  • Not prone to jamming.
  • Power adaptor and back up batteries. Best to have dual options (batteries only not advisable).
  • Minimal spillage- decent size bowls.
  • Sturdy overall product.
  • Timer– to allow for numerous feeding times.
  • Most food dispensers only use dry cat food. Some feeders can feed wet cat food. If buying a wet-food dispenser make sure the food is kept fresh (dispensers for wet cat food will have a cooling system).
  • Wi-Fi Controls offer convenience allowing for pet owners to manage their automated cat feeder using an app in their phone.
  • Gravity feeders tend to be more reliable with simpler design and working parts. Less chance of something going wrong.
  • Voice recording of your voice may encourage your cat and offer comfort when you are away

We have elaborated on several of the features in our guide at the bottom of this article, below our Best Automated Cat Feeder Reviews on this page.

Best Automatic Cat Feeder Buyer’s Guide:

An automatic cat feeder should do several things well. We’ve elaborated on some features outlined earlier in this Guide.

Timer: 

If your cat is used to eating at specific times, then you can offer her that same food whether you are there or not. Most timers will offer a minimum of 3 meals a day, but many others offer more meals and with portion controls for meals. This is a great feature that limits food so your cat doesn’t overeat, whilst ensuring food is offered throughout the day.

Voice recording:

 If your cat is hesitant to eat when you are gone, a voice recording of your voice can be comforting to your cat. It can be set to play your voice at feeding time.

Batteries or corded:

 There are perks to both a cordless and a corded automatic feeder. If you have a cordless, you can put the automatic feeder anywhere without worrying about it being close to a plug or tripping over wires. But if you plan on taking a jaunt out of town, you risk batteries that go flat and fail to work whilst you are gone, leaving your kitty without her food.

Gravity feeders:

Gravity feeders are convenient as they will feed your cat on demand, ensuring your cat is never hungry. This is great if your cat can self regulate and not over eat . Gravity cat dispensers are not recommended for cats requiring weight management or if you have more than one cat, each on a different meal plan.

Works with wet cat foods:

 If you feed your cat wet cat food, you may not have as many options for automatic feeders because most of the feeders are compatible with dry foods. There are automated feeders specifically for semi-wet cat food. These feeders will be equipped with a cooling system to keep the food fresh.  The cooling system may be electric or ice packs.

Wi-Fi controls:

Again, offering convenience whilst you are away. Being able to control your automated cat feeder when away from the house is an added convenience allowing you to adjust feeding times, amounts and to monitor for faults. Wi-Fi controls are accessed using an App that you can download onto your smart phone or device.

Durability:

Ensuring the product is built strong to withstand large pets, prying claws and teeth is just as important as it being able to withstand repeated washing in a dishwasher. Check what the materials are made of as you do not want a water dispenser that are made of cheap plastics that leach toxins into your pet’s water, nor a feeder that has many intricate components that may break easily. Finally, seek automatic cat feeders that have solid bases and are not easily knocked over.
