Cats are carnivores which means meat is the main ingredient in their diet. Plant-based proteins don’t contain the amino acids that cats need. Cats need much more protein in their diets than other animals and need certain amino acids like taurine which is only found in animal based proteins. Additionally, there are certain vitamins cats need which naturally occur only in animal tissue. So, feeding your cat a variety of different meats will take care of all the vitamins and proteins needed for the health of your cat.
