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'm so glad you brought up the awkward vegan question. As a vegan myself having to see people in the community say "my cat does well on a vegan diet you should be better!" is sooooooo upsetting!!

  • 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 😊

  • Cat food in general is too expensive!!! And if you’re looking for species appropriate food, it will break your bank!!!

    • 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

  • Hey Kitten Lady I have a question I have 5-6 month old kittens and they seem small. They eat out of their free will they are always full and happy...but they don’t seem to be growing. They eat kitten food, so should I consider feeding the cat food ? I’m just a lil concerned because they both suddenly stopped growing 🙃😅

    Winter1546Winter1546Month ago
    • 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.

    • Humans are actually pretty weird for being able to drink other species milk! And a high percentage of humans are actually lactose intolerant bc they fit the more standard mammal model. Cats will get sick on any milk that isn't cats. And when they get older they actually won't be able to process even that (like a lactose intolerant human)

    • They need to be taken to a vet and vaccinated and mamma spayed and babies spayed/neutered when age appropriate firstly. A vet will give you care advice if you plan to keep/care for them. 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 eggAdelaide an eggMonth ago
    • @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!

      Fay ReidFay ReidMonth ago
    • 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!

      rinearineaMonth ago
    • Yes, some of the homemade recipes are very good and provided by veterinarians. Just have to make sure to include all of the things cats need.

    • I automatically turned my nose up at RC because of the (quite frankly, laughable) cost. Also I'd have to go out of my way to buy it in my country and buy online from abroad. Not worth it. I'm lucky though that we don't have a lot of the same crap in our cat food that seems to be in the food available in the USA.

  • I stopped the video just a few mintues in because I was so excited to find something that might be additional help for my 3 spicy kittens and their ongoing diarrhea. 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.

  • There are a lot of additives in Royal Canin.. I boil chicken for my cat & use Thrive biscuits 80% meat for during night snacks, occasional raw egg with tuna if she needs variety x

    Sher NorthSher NorthMonth ago
    • 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.

    • You do know cats require taurine and other vitamins in their diet? Don’t just feed them chicken & eggs. They will end up lacking nutrients. I’m all for making their food. Just make sure to include all other necessary nutrients that cats require.

    • Adelaide an egg it means there were dangerous levels of certain vitamins and minerals or contamination in a Lot of food made. food from recalled Lots are unsafe to feed animals. their 2019 recall on dog food was due to dangerously high levels of vitamin D and caused kidney problems and death in hundreds of pets. unless your pet has health problems there are better brands to feed. most vets have little to no training in nutrition for pets. many are bought out to advertise for big companies. it’s better to do your own research than ask your vet for recommendations

    • Actually, Hills is the best quality. They even have a prescription diet cat food. Vets recommend it Kanin has gotten into and use USworlds vloggers. I believe, Kanin gives the users free cat food as a promotional tool. It is so corrupt..

  • Hi, Hannah. I'm wondering what you think of Blue Buffalo food for kittens & cats. They advertise that their ingredients are so much better than other brands, but is that really true? 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

      Mia LindströmMia LindströmMonth ago
    • Feeding raw can open your cat up to bacteria, viruses, and parasites that live in meat before they've been properly cooked. I know there are a lot of people who swear by it, but cats can die from food-bourne illness just like humans can

  • My 11 year old cat eats the Fibre response by our vet's recommendation and it has made such a difference for him. I started noticing him having difficulty going to the litter box. He spent so much time trying to poop and he struggled a lot. So our vet recommended that food and now he's OK. My parents cat is a big one. I mean he's really big but after his neuter he started gaining too much weight so the vet recommended the saciety management a year ago and he already lost a little more than 1kg. So we are super happy with the brand and the results we're having! But can you maybe touch on the raw feeding trend? I see so many people saying that it is better for them and it's confusing because vets here in Portugal do not speak about it and I'm curious about it

    Catarina AlvesCatarina AlvesMonth ago
    • most vets are not comfortable recommending a raw food diet yet. it has high possibilities for contamination which can result in both pets and owners getting sick. many raw food companies have not existed very long so there is not a recall history so it’s hard to tell how much you can trust a brand. raw food has the potential to be a healthy option for some cats but only if made and stored properly

  • 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.

    David S.David S.Month ago
    • ​@Erica Roldan Thrive - but I only get the poultry flavours as the fish only 70%. I use their wet food and treats as well, though there's not a lot to choose between them and plenty of other high-end brands. But I haven't come across any other dry food to match their meat content. As you might expect, they're not cheap compared to your average supermarket cat food, but shop around before you buy direct - I've been able to find their products a little cheaper in some places than on their own website, especially if you buy in bulk.

      Carrie SeymourCarrie SeymourMonth ago
    • Carrie Seymour Which dry food do you use?

      Erica RoldanErica RoldanMonth ago
    • @San1984 they address that grain free isn't necessarily any better, because it often contains just as much filler. Unless I missed it they seemed to gloss over whether high filler/carb, low meat/protein food, regardless of whether the filler is grain or potato, is any good. All dry foods need some filler to make them into kibble but some are mostly filler, others are nearly all meat. I use a dry food that's 90% meat. It is grain free, but that's not why I chose it.

    • Give her skim milk no problem if she does not have any issues. Also you give a spoon of cocunut milk(take some pieces of coconut, blend it in a blender, seive and give the milk. Keep rest in fridge for 3, 4 days. Before giving should warm it. Mix with her food. This produces new cells Love and thanks from INDIA

  • It’s amazing to me that people still don’t get the importance of mommas milk. Humans are the only species who think it’s cool to jump to using another species milk to feed a baby. Dolphins nurse their babies, horses nurse their babies, cows, dogs, cats, bunnies, hamsters nurse their babies. All mammals nurse and each bit of colostrum is essential to the growth and immune system of that particular infant. Mommas milk is always best, liquid gold for that baby. Formula is better than nothing, but nothing is better than momma.

    Beth SlaughterBeth SlaughterMonth ago
    • Much of that comes from the same idea that formula is better than breast milk for human babies. While there has certainly been a reckoning with that falsehood for human children over the last several years, unfortunately, the idea has not quite caught on in the pet world. Part of the stereotype about cats loving milk comes from old illustrations and cartoons like Tom and Jerry. An entire generation of kids grew up watching cartoons that showed cats loving/drinking milk. Importantly, that same generation was also raised drinking formula rather than breast milk. Much of the latter misinformation came out of the 1950s when pediatric science encouraged women to feed formulas because there was a belief that formulas had better nutritional value in the form of vitamins and minerals. (E.G. Dr. Spock's The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care) The early Cold War era in the US marked an era where science was thought to trump nature. We have now come full circle in our understanding and scientific revisionism that nature actually had it right all along. Unfortunately, it takes time to change attitudes and culture - so while Americans are coming back around to embracing breast feeding, it will take a bit longer to dispel the myth about cats and milk, and even that grains, fruits, and vegetables are okay for our obligate carnivore friends. Cheers feline advocates!
