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!
