The mystery in cat food ingredients

You get an empty cart at the entrance of the grocery store. You find the aisle that carries pet food. You just adopted a kitten and this is your first trip to the grocery store to pick up cat food for your kitten. As you push the cart down the aisle, you are surprised at how many choices you have. Where on earth did all these bag and canned foods appear from? You see all kinds of brands and you don’t know which one to choose. It is quite confusing. As you read a little further, you see ingredients such as by-product and locust bean. What is a by-product and locust bean anyway, you ponder? Your intention was to get in and out of the grocery store quickly, but now this is turning out to be a cat food exam. You want to understand it all, but have no clue.

Looking behind you, there is another shopper positioned in the same aisle to grab a brand of cat food. This was your queue to approach the person and ask about the brand and why they choose it for their cat. After five minutes talking to the stranger, you are shocked to see how little you knew about taking care of this cat, but you were willing to learn. You decide to do your own research, but why do that when you can go to to learn more about what is best for your kitten and cat as it relates to nutrition, recipes and care.
