Few enzymes can break down carbs in a cat's digestive system. They are far better on meals high in protein and moisture and rich in the nutrients from meat, including fatty acids, vital vitamins, minerals, & Amino Acids like Taurine.
Because cats are carnivores, they need raw food like ground bone, meat, and organ to survive. Also, they have smaller, more acidic digestive tracts than humans, which helps them digest raw foods better. A cat can easily get rid of many infections without any problems.
Cats need 35 to 250 mg of taurine each day. And taurine is only present in meat proteins and is essential for good eyesight, metabolism, cardiovascular system, and support for a strong immune system.
It is also more prevalent in darker meats than in lighter meat, and the great source of this is organ meat.
