If you guys know me at all, you can probably guess that I spend a lot of time in the cat food aisle. There are certain foods that I know my cats like, but I'm also always on the lookout for what's new. Picking out healthy cat food can be a little confusing, especially since there seem to be so many different kinds available! I was contacted by Hill's Science Diet to check out their grain-free cat food, share some info, and give some away to you guys! (Score!)
I started paying more attention to cat food last year when the vet said my kitty Tallulah needed a high protein, low carb diet. I spent a ton of time digging through info online and asking my vet for help, and eventually figured out what worked for her. In the process, I learned a lot about cat nutrition! If you're interested in tips on what to feed your cat, Hill's has a great article about choosing a natural cat food.
One thing to keep in mind: Grain-free cat food does not necessarily mean it's carb-free. Some grain free foods can actually have equal or even more carbs than regular cat food! However, some cats have sensitivities to grains that can cause skin irritations or upset stomachs, so a grain-free food can make things much easier on them. Whether grains are a concern for your cat or not, the thing to look for is a cat food that's nutritionally balanced with high quality ingredients that will be easy for your cat's body to absorb. The grain-free cat food offered by Hill's Science Diet is balanced to support a healthy immune system, contains prebiotics for digestive health, and is free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. Plus, it's made in the US with ingredients that have to meet strict guidelines.
The fine folks at Hill's sent me a big box of grain free cat food (both wet and dry!), plus some treats to try out, so we'll be reviewing those soon! (Cat party! Woohoo!) We're not the only ones who get to enjoy some free cat food, though! FOUR winners will each receive 10 lbs of Hill's Science Diet cat food! Some of you are about to have some seriously happy cats!
