Welcome to episode six of Catology: Kitten Lady & Friends, my interview series all about staying curious about cats! This week I'm talking with the amazing Brianne Morrow, an expert in feline nutrition and my personal go-to resource for all things related to cat and kitten food. We talk about everything from how cats' taste buds work, to how to read a pet food label--and I even ask her a ton of questions about all the biggest debates regarding cat food! Should they eat wet or dry? Are grains a big deal? We cover it all! Many thanks to Royal Canin for their continued partnership on this educational series!

  • I successfully syringe/bottle fed a litter of 4 kittens than were discovered by some young teens. It took some talking, but I eventually ended up with all four. Hand raised kittens are the BEST PETS. TWO went to a teacher at my kids school and the other two to two other families.

    • No it’s very bad for them. KMR is the best but if you seriously can not access it then goats milk. Kittens can not digest cows milk and goats milk isn’t much better but it will do in an emergency.

  • Hi I’ve just stumble upon your channel and loved it. Very happy to have found this! I’m hoping someone here could help me with my query, if not answered already 😬😬👍🏻 my kitten is 8 months old and he doesn’t eat the solid part of wet food, he licks the liquid around but doesn’t chew the soft bits. It’s a good pouch for kittens from Science Hills brand. He eats his dry food but I wanted to understand why he leaves the best part of the wet food, or at least what I believe it’s the best part, clearly not for kitten Charlie. Thank you 🙏

  • I have ten cats and feeding them drains almost all my income, not even counting the vet visits and spaying and neutering them (which I've thankfully completed) but they're all worth it. In this world where most people talk to you because they need something from you, they are my furry form of comfort and love.

  • On the vegan topic, I'm vegan, but I'm also a zookeeper. And people are always perplexed that I'll happily butcher meat and prepare meat for my animals. Like you, my reason stems from respect for animals. The animals I have the pleasure of working with are under my care, and it's my responsibility to nurture every part of their lives. So if I've got to learn to butcher to do my job, then I'll jump right in! I love my animals with my whole heart and do whatever I need to to give them the best lives possible while their in my care 😊

    • @Ale with a tale Did you even read what I wrote? I was talking about a "reasonable attempt at a healthy, nutritionally balanced, tasty, vegan alternative," not feeding carrots and apples to a lion (or grass to a cat). Of course some animals are able to hunt and digest other animals, and since it is currently only possible for them to fulfill their nutritional needs like this, or much easier than any other way, this is what they will do in the wild. This doesn't mean that we shouldn't at least try to reduce the number of animals they have to eat, if it can be done at all. And obviously many healthy vegan cats do exist. Anyone who would deny this is either uninformed or a liar. Please look them up. Forcing animals that eat meat in the wild, to keep eating meat, when you are in a position to give them a reasonably tasty and healthy vegan alternative, is at the very least an abuse of those animals that have to be turned into the meat for the animals you claim to care about.

    • @Jasper May Do you even hear what you're saying? You can't start feeding carrots and apples to a lion! A assure you, a lion will very happily feed on other animals, in fact that's exactly what he does in the wild. It's not that he wasn't offered a vegan alternative diet to a meat based one, it's just that a lion is supposed to eat other animals, he can't survive otherwise. If it were offered to him, he will always chose meat, for obvious reasons, so what's your point? The same goes with other carnivore animals. Forcing a vegan diet on carnivores is animal abuse, and you can't change my mind on that.

    • @Jasper May The problem with your way of thinking is it takes a ton of research to feed a cat, especially a kitten a vegan diet. If done wrong, the damage can be irreversible. Another problem I have with your way of thinking is you are not saving animals by preaching this extreme veganism. It would serve animals better to have every human be vegan for one day of the week than for myself for example or one person to be vegan for the rest of their lives. Your way of extremism is going to turn more people away from veganism, than actually promote veganism. Owning pets is against extreme veganism you know that right? Look into it, I saw many documentaries and done a ton of research online before choosing to go with a vegan diet myself....and one interesting subject was owning a pet is not making animals equal or true to their rights of being truly free. Not to mention the horrors in the industry. Forget adopting, the hoarding of pets, the over breeding what happens to unwanted pets etc. The abuse humans bring on pets etc. It is really heartbreaking, but interesting and doesn't necassarely have the wrong perspective. I just drew the line as as vegan, I own two kittens and they are my life. They help my anxiety etc....they make my days when they are not so bright. I wouldn't trade them for the world and if some extreme vegan wants to tell me to not own pets, that's their opinion....The same goes for the insane belief that cats can thrive on a vegan diet. Meat is actually essential for cats. There has not been much research yet for a vegan diet for a cat, but maybe there will be more in the future. Personally for me it is just not worth the health of my cats. And believe me I thought about doing a vegan diet, I have spent hours and hours of researching the best nutritional diet for my kittens and they are the healthiest kittens I actually have ever owned or seen. :) I choose to not feed them a vegan diet because I decided that was what was best, not because it was the easiest choice or most convenient, especially considering my beliefs and as a vegan. I hope in the future to see more research and it be more talked about when it comes to a vegan diet for cats, I do hope that is one day possible with no health risks or room for error. Until then I will feed my cats meat, as they are in fact carnivores. They have not been that far domesticated that they can just eat an entirely different diet than wild cats who do hunt and eat meat. If it wasn't a nature thing, then wild cats wouldn't eat meat. It is nature for cats to thrive off a meat diet and other essentials. Humans can be vegan and not risk their health because we are omnivores, not carnivores like cats. Even then.....it takes research and knowing what you are doing to become a vegan as a human. When we are talking about a vegan cat, that research and knowledge becomes 100 times more with still possible room for error. So no thanks.

    • Hello Madelynne Herbertson. Please don't take offense, but consider some questions I have concerning your position. Do you respect the animals you say you are butchering so happily? Do you love the animals that you're turning into food for the animals in your care, with your whole heart? Do you respect your animals enough to give them a choice between eating other animals, and a reasonable attempt at a healthy, nutritionally balanced, tasty, vegan alternative? I understand that it may be difficult to convince your employers, if you need their permission to do what you consider to be in the best interest of all animals including theirs, but you can start small, even with your own cats, if you have any. Please think about it, and search for examples of healthy and happy vegan cats, which actually exist.

    • Simply keep in mind that cats are 100% carnivores unlike dogs. Try to find cat food that its first 3 or 4 ingredients are meat sources. There is some negative to “meat by-product” or “meat meal.” The problem is, the species appropriate cat food brands are VERY expensive!

  • Help! A community cat had her kitten under my house in July. At 8 weeks I was able to trap her kitten and bring the little one inside. In the five days I have been caring for “Lucy” her socialization is going well. I am using a large play pen for sleeping and eating and being around people and our old resident Ragdoll Cat. I use my bathroom as a playroom. Lucy loves me already, wants to see and be with me. And she adores the old Ragdoll. I will be looking to find a good home or foster home for Lucy as I cannot keep her. Also have arranged to get the Momma Cat spayed. My problem is that this is the first cat or kitten that I have rescued that wants nothing to do with a litter tray. I have tried everything I know. She has however discovered the bathtub and has been both peeing and pooping there. (We only have one bathroom and are not keen on that situation.) I have a small litter box in her playpen and have placed two different sized trays in the bathtub hoping to persuade her to try them. Being litter trained is a plus when looking for adoptive cat parents. What can I do?

  • I am a bit surprised of the colab from a kitten focused perspective, cats are obligate carnivores, feeding the a carbohydrate heavy food to an animal who requires no carbs is not really in line with what I feel is the best nutrition for cats. I raise all my kittens on a rotation of raw foods, meat based kibble and canned kitten foods. I will say this though; royal canin does make foods for very, very specific health needs, like James. Many cats need a hyper-specific diet to help with pinpoint conditions, and having those diets available saves a lot of cats. For a healthy adult cat who has no health conditions, I wouldn't recommend standard royal canin food, instead a meat based diet that honors a cats entire body

They eat kitten food, so should I consider feeding the cat food ? I’m just a lil concerned because they both suddenly stopped growing 🙃😅

    ikari1546ikari15467 ամիս առաջ
    • Adult cat food isn't likely to support growth better than kitten food. The growth rate of older kittens should naturally slow down compared to when they were little babies, but kitten food will still be better for them - they are still growing and developing. If they really have stopped growing at that age that could be cause for concern. A vet will be able to examine your kittens and give you much better advice than someone on the internet, even an extremely knowledgeable someone. Kitten Lady can't examine your kittens.

Or they can be turned over to a shelter where everything will be taken care of there and they will be found good homes.

  • Royal Canin foods are mostly made with fillers (corn, potato, rice, wheat), gluten, meat by-products, and dry kibble. Not a quality food for 100% carnivore feline. I’m quite surprised by the endorsement here. The protein needs to come from meat not protein from plants.

    • @Adelaide an egg research BARF, 'Biologically Appropriate Raw Feeding' - I have 4 raw fed cats who have never been sick or had diet related issues, anyone trying to scare you off raw feeding will scare you with parasites, diseases etc, it's simply not true. Just make sure you feed balanced, and there are plenty of helpful facebook groups, resources, holistic vets AND premade raw food brands!

    • You want to look at the first 3-4 ingredients they should be meat based, meat byproducts are not a bad thing in fastfood as cats are more sensitive to what might be in the meat during slaughter of the animal, so what you find in dog food meat byproducts is not the same byproduct as in cat food

    • Listen. I have fed my 3 now-geriatric cats a variety of grain-free high quality foods their whole lives and I have long felt very strongly about it, so I get it. But now that they are old enough to have failing kidneys and chicken-sensitivities and etc etc etc, my very progressive and holistic vet has put us on a mixture of... you guessed it: Royal Canin and Purina prescription diets because of the wide variety of highly specific nutritional formulations. It kills me to buy Purina, but they have a line of kidney function diets that are chicken-free and it is *literally* the only one on the market. I have done everything right their whole lives with nutrition, but cats age and sometimes get chronic illnesses no matter what you do. And I am grateful that there are foods that can prolong my cats' lives and preserve their remaining health, no matter how icky sounding the ingredients. Because sometimes it's not about what makes *us* feel good (like an ingredient list that is recognizable and seems like it's made from whole foods) but rather about what will make our cats feel good (like a food created by a huge food laboratory like what the big prescription diets like RC and Purina can offer). Please also remember that Kittenxlady cares for very ill kittens and cats often!

The vet at the animal rescue examined him and said most likely he has a neurological issue. The animal rescue doesn't have the resources for a wheelchair or for further examination from a neurologist. They are going to euthanize Sandy. Do you know of any cat or animal rescues that accepts special needs kittens? I am located in Florida.

I did a quick search for the Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Kitten wet and dry. It's tough to find. Petco requires a prescription, but Chewy does not. $100 just to start on a single case of small cans + a 4 lb bag of dry. I'm a little in sticker shock but am going to go ahead and try it. Combined with their veterinary care, I'm looking forward to the positive results. Thanks so much for sharing and all that you do.

    Sher NorthSher North7 ամիս առաջ
    • Cats in the wild would eat their prey whole, and get vitamins and minerals from e.g. organ meat, and just muscle meat may not cut it. Unless you're replicating that or supplementing, which would require plenty of research, you probably are better off using a good quality cat food. I use Thrive as well, I think they're great; they also do a wet food which basically is boiled chicken (or other meat depending on the flavour) with stock and the required supplements. No joke, I feel like if I had no food in the house I could happily tuck into a tin myself with a little salt and pepper. It is expensive though.

Are they really better and/or healthier for my fur-baby? Additional question: I have a senior cat who has been on Indoor Formula for most of her life. Are there foods that combine the hairball control of the indoor formula and the senior health benefits of the senior formula? Can I get it without a prescription? Thanks for your time.

    • Use egg yolks for hairball. Feed a WET food diet ONLY that is low in carbs and brush your cat regularly. This is how you prevent hairballs. “Hairball formula” food is simply marketing and nothing in that food actually helps with hairballs. Also dry food is literally a death sentence to cats who require moisture rich food to survive.

    • Almost every advocate of raw food, when asked why it's better, will explain in detail why fresh whole quality ingredients, and an appropriate composition (i.e. for cats, as high a meat content as possible) is better than highly processed by-products and fillers. I have never yet come across one who explains why it's better for it not to be cooked. There are risks from uncooked meat and there are quality cooked foods out there.

      Carrie SeymourCarrie Seymour7 ամիս առաջ
    • Twisty Sunshine It’s good then that cats are adapted to eating raw meat. Their stomach fluid is so sour that it kills bacteria. And I find it funny how cats have survived for hundreds and thousands of years by eating raw meat but now all of a sudden it’s dangerous? You can’t compare humans to cats since they are strict carnivores, their whole bowel system is built to handle it. What they aren’t built to digest is carbohydrates, which is a main ingredient in almost all dry food.
