If you’ve followed The Conscious Cat for any length of time, you already know that we’re passionate about species-appropriate nutrition. Cats are obligate carnivores, and they need meat not only to survive, but to thrive.

If you’re new to our site, or to feline nutrition, The Best Food for Your Cat is a great place to get started. I offer an overview of the key points you need to know when it comes to feeding your cat, and a list of brands that I recommend.

You can find a wealth of information about different aspects of feeding your cat’s the best possible diet, from what to feed, how much to feed, and how to transition your cat to a healthier diet, in the Feline Nutrition section on our site.

But don’t just take my word for it. Jackson Galaxy recently published a series of videos covering several aspects of feline nutrition, from why you shouldn’t feed kibble to why wet food is better to why raw food is the best possible diet. And of course, Jackson presents the information in his unique and highly entertaining Cat Daddy style!

  1. Hello, do you have low phosphorus canned food turkey. Can you please sent to me some free sample to try. Thank you

    • I don’t sell food. Unfortunately, pet food manufacturers don’t disclose phosphorus content on their labels, so you’ll have to contact each company individually to get the information. I know some of Weruva’s formulas are very low in phosphorus. Catinfo.org lists phosphorus content for a number of foods, but the list hasn’t been updated since 2017, so if you decide to pick from that list, I recommend contacting the manufacturer to make sure the numbers haven’t changed.

    • You can get a binder to add to the food your cat likes. It keeps the phosphorus from being absorbed. There a couple of different ones on the market. I had two cats with CKD at one time. They didn’t seem to notice the binder in their food. It’s tasteless, as far as I could tell.
