why a raw meat diet?

Cats are carnivores - they eat meat! Raw diets mimic what a cat would eat in the wild.

In the wild, cats feed on rodents, birds and smaller mammals. When they feed, they consume the bones, meat, tendons, organs and they eat the entrails which contain partly digested grass and seeds which provide them with the necessary nutrients essential in any cat's diet.

Raw food is gaining popularity amongst cat enthusiasts.
