25 Worst Cat Foods

25 Worst Cat Foods

If you’re a cat owner, you probably want to make sure that you’re feeding your pet the best possible food. Just like with humans, a cat’s diet plays a huge role in his/her overall health. With lots of cat food options on the market, you may think that it doesn’t really matter which one you buy. After all, if it’s on the shelf – it’s safe, right? Wrong! Not all cat food is created equally. While there are some cat foods on the market that will provide the cats the nutrients that they need there are just as many brands of cat food that are unhealthy for the cat to consume. They contain byproducts and fillers that are not healthy at all. These are the 25 worst cat foods that are on the market.

Optimum Adult Cat Food Formula

Ingredients:
Poultry and poultry by-products, corn, cereal protein, beet pulp, pearl barley, poultry digest, salt, minerals (potassium chloride, zinc sulphate, ferrous sulphate, copper sulphate, potassium iodide), vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12, C, E and choline), methionine, taurine, inulin, antioxidants and yucca

Review:
This cat food is said to be endorsed by a vet. This food contains a list of by products and other fillers. Instead of high-end fish this formula contains sardines that have a lot of oil which are not good for the cat.

Evolution Vegan Cat Kibble

Ingredients:
Crude protein, crude fat, crude fiber, moisture, ash content

Review:
There is no meat used in this formula which makes it hard for the cat to digest. This product is expensive and it has no nutritional value for the cat. In fact it can lead to vomiting.

Ami Cat Vegan Cat Food

Ingredients:
Corn gluten, corn, corn oil, rice protein, whole peas, pea fiber, brewer’s yeast, bicalcium phosphate, linseed, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, potato protein, sodium chloride, calcium carbonate, rapeseed oil, vitamins and minerals, taurine (0.15%), L-Carnitine, Vitamin E, linoleic acid (6.40%)

Review:
Since this cat food is vegan and no meat is used it is rather hard to digest. Cats need the protein from meat in their diet and while vegetables are healthy the cat is not getting the proper nutrients that it needs. This can food can leave the cat feeling ill, becoming lethargic, and having some digestive issues.

Purina Cat Chow Naturals

Ingredients:
Chicken byproduct meal, corn gluten meal, soy flour.

Review:
The ingredients say it all. Chicken byproduct meal leftover chicken scraps and a person should not be feeding this to their cat. There is nothing natural about this formula as it contains preservatives. This food is processed and lacking the nutrients that the cat needs.

Review:
While there are a number of ingredients in this product most people have no idea what most of them are. They are hard to say and even harder for the cat to eat. Chicken meal is anything but natural and there are a number of preservatives in this food. Cats are said to have stomach issues after eating this brand of cat food.

Review
This cat food uses natural poultry flavor which people are trying to figure out exactly what this is. Brown rice is difficult for the cat to digest. Even the vegetables such as the peas in this cat food are highly processed.

Review:
Foods that have corn meal as the first ingredient do not have too much nutritional value. There are also a number of meat by products in this cat food which is also not a good thing. Just about all of the ingredients that make up this cat food are processed.

Review:
While this food sounds good, the first ingredients are byproducts. It is also loaded with corn meal and artificial flavoring. This is nothing scientific about this cat food other than the chemical makeup of the ingredients that go into it.
