Calling all cat lovers! 9Lives® wants pet parents to know they can feed their cats the food they love while providing them the nutrition they need with the 9Lives Advanced Nutrient System, which is sure to help keep your cat –and your budget – happy. Keep reading on how you can get the inside scoop on feline nutrition.
A survey of feline pet parents across the country commissioned by 9Lives found that an overwhelming 94 percent of cat owners are confident they feed their felines the most nutritious meals possible. However, nearly half (48 percent) admit they’ve fed their cats table scraps – which do not provide the essential nutrients cats need – an average seven times per month. Additionally, only 30 percent know that giving your cat milk may not be a healthy practice due to the common incidence of lactose intolerance in adult cats.1
Additional findings include:
- * 23% of American pet parents think it’s beneficial to keep their cats on a purely vegetarian diet, while actually it may be harmful2
- * There are a number of foods that feline parents assume are healthy for cats, but are actually not advantageous to their health including root vegetables (73%), green tomatoes (54%), and raw potatoes (50%)3
- * Nine out of ten feline pet parents would be willing to switch foods if they knew it would provide better nutrition. In fact:
- 92 percent of cat owners would switch foods if it would improve their cat’s health, and
- 91 percent would switch food if they could add years onto their feline’s life
In an effort to educate pet parents about the common misperceptions of proper feline nutrition, 9Lives is committed to raising awareness to this issue by providing advanced nutrition for all cats. With the 9Lives Advanced Nutrient System, feline parents everywhere can rest assured knowing their cats are getting the essential nutrients they need to help promote healthy skin and coat, strong muscle growth and a healthy immune system among other benefits.PLUS make sure you Sign Up to get the latest in promotions and coupons.
My cats Bruiser and Hi-O loved this dry cat food and they are extremely picky when it comes to food. Usually they only eat Meow Mix. So I was happy to see that they not only were receiving the vitamins and nutrients they needed, but they also enjoyed it. We haven’t tried the wet 9lives yet, but I’m sure they will like it as well.
