|I thought I might start adiscussion here about something I of saw on an animal planet thing a while ago that I found interesting about carnivores.
Please don't flame me, I just wanted to have an interesting conversation
We talk about how cats are carnivores and are designed to eat meat. But when they eat animals in the wild, they're eating animals that are herbavores, so if they eat rabbit or a bunch of mice or something, and they eat the stomachs, aren't they in turn eating fruits and veggies and grains that that animal has just eaten? So even though I've never seen a cat eat fruit or corn on the cob, it does eat things that eats those things.
and also, if they did only eat meat, then why aren't cans of tuna, or even the merrick 100% meat wet food a full complete diet for a cat, and when you make raw, you have to ad several suppliments and vitamins that you could get naturally from eating fruits veggies and such. Also, I think someone mentioned before, cats in the wild don't tend to have very long lifespans (thought I do reconize that there are a lot of dangers in the wild, but not every day is killed by a "danger") And I know that Grain has its own problems, especially whenits all processed and becomes nothing more than a "gluten" but what about raw wild grains that prey eat?
is it really so crazy that there are fruits and veggies in cat food? (not counting food allergies, thats a whole different thing. I'm willing to bet that wild cats with real food allergies don't survive long enough to procreate)
No flaming,please. Just some raw food for thought !!
