Cats need dietary taurine, but significant
quantities naturally occur only in animal tissues. A shortage
causes blindness and heart disease. Most mammals biosynthesize
vitamin A from the yellow pigment (carotene) found in vegetables.
Cats lack this ability, making a dietary source of this vitamin,
found naturally only in animal tissues, essential. Vitamin D is
another essential vitamin, found naturally only in animal tissues
as D3. The essential fatty acid arachidonate is rare in non-animal
sources. Cats require it for numerous vital metabolic processes
including reproduction. Vegecat products contain the rare nutrients
mentioned above derived from non-animal sources, such as D2 from
yeast. Recipes meet nutrient levels established by the Association
of American Feed Control Official’s (AAFCO) Cat Food Nutrient
Profile for adult cats, without using any animal products. Each
container comes with simple recipes which, when used with Vegecat,
are formulated to meet all the nutritional requirements for adult
cats. (For kittens, see Vegekit also offered on our site.) Vegecat
recipes may include ingredients such as lentils, garbanzos, tofu,
TVP, & yeast (we highly recommend VegeYeast as it is the
healthiest for cats). For detailed feeding information, download
