IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT THE PRICE!
As a caring pet parent, it is important to see through clever marketing ploys when choosing a cat or kitten food for your kitty. Your cat eats the same food every day and the brand you feed is your cat's main source of nutrition and vital to a long and healthy life.
We like to think that all pet food manufacturers have your cat’s best interests in mind but this is not always the case. Some manufacturers use ingredients that you would never knowingly feed your cat. In fact, you may be shocked to learn what some brands of cat food really contain. Not to mention how many brands have been repeat offenders with recalls over the years.

While the first five ingredients play a significant role in the nutritional make-up of your cat’s food, every single ingredient is important. Each and every ingredient in Life’s Abundance food is carefully chosen to work with all the others to supply your companion animal with a highly nutritious and perfectly balanced meal every day, every year over a lifetime.
HIGH-QUALITY PROTEINS – Proteins are the building blocks of all living organisms. Protein is essential for all bodily functions including those of the brain, heart, skin, skeleton and many others. Life’s Abundance cat food contains at least 33% of high-quality protein. Look for identifiable animal proteins such as "chicken meal" rather generic terms like "poultry meal," which can consist of any fowl (turkey, chicken, geese, etc.).
CHICKEN MEAL -- Some foods contain chicken meat or chicken parts, which naturally hold a fair amount of water. We prefer to use chicken meal because most of the water has been removed, which makes it a concentrated source of protein. This means that there is a greater “protein content” in one pound of chicken meal versus one pound of chicken meat. That’s why high-quality chicken meal is a key ingredient in Life’s Abundance foods.
WHOLE GRAINS- Whole grains are an excellent source of protein, fiber, B vitamins, iron, zinc and other essential minerals. They also provide the kind of carbohydrates that deliver sustained energy to your cat. We include the natural goodness of Ground Brown Rice in Life’s Abundance cat food.
VITAMINS AND MINERALS– The proprietary blend of vitamins and minerals in Life’s Abundance foods was carefully selected to work in concert with all of the other ingredients to enhance the overall nutritional value of the food.
ANTIOXIDANT SYSTEM – Among other nutrients, our antioxidant system includes vitamins A, C and E.
CHICKEN FAT - We believe the primary fat source in cat food should be animal based because these fats contain a profile of fatty acids that are easily metabolized and generally more available to the body. Animal fats can vary in quality, so look for a species-specific fat like “chicken fat” (versus “animal fat”) to be certain of the kind of fat your cat is eating.
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS FROM FISH OIL - Omega-3 fatty acids are some of the most extensively researched natural nutritional ingredients in the world. Among its many health benefits, the omega-3’s in Life’s Abundance help support healthy skin and a shiny coat. We also included flaxseed meal for its outstanding nutritional profile and its contribution to healthy skin and coat.
DIETARY FIBER - Fiber is required in every diet to maintain healthy intestinal tract and good nutrient absorption.
“GREEN FOODS” – DOG GRASS GRASS - Dog grass contains many nutrients that cats crave … that’s instinct at its best! When cats in the wild consumed their prey, the intestinal tract contained grass and this grass provided necessary fiber and phytonutrients.
“GREEN FOODS” - ALFALFA SPROUTS - Alfalfa sprouts contain an abundance of highly active antioxidants, phytochemicals, enzymes, trace minerals and numerous other living nutrients, which work to support good health and promote proper assimilation of foods.
PROBIOTICS - These ingredients are similar to those found in supermarket yogurts. Probiotics help support healthy immune and digestive systems.
Enjoy your day!
