Cats are obligate carnivores, which means they need meat in their diet to thrive. Their systems aren’t designed to digest carbohydrates. A raw diet is one of the best ways to fulfill cats’ nutritional requirements, but raw food, even a commercially prepared raw diet, may exceed the comfort level for some cat parents. I don’t think it’s necessary to take an “all or nothing” stand when it comes to feline nutrition, but I do believe that it is important to feed our cats a diet that is as minimally processed as possible.
There are few options for commercial minimally processed fresh cooked diets available. One of the best on the market comes from NomNom Now.
Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Oakland, CA, NomNomNow delivers healthy and nutritious pet food made with fresh, restaurant-quality ingredients. The food is delivered directly to your home. NomNomNow meals are cooked weekly in the company’s local FDA-compliant kitchen. The meals are individually proportioned, tailored to meet the specific nutrition needs of each pet, and ready to serve with no preparation.
