Do cats need cereals?

Any cat is an obligate predator. This means that she needs a diet based on animal protein (up to 90%). A cat physiologically cannot stay healthy if there are too many components from plant foods in its diet. However, a certain proportion of carbohydrates should still be, and that’s why.

Carbohydrates perform the function of rapidly receiving energy, which a cat needs to break down animal protein. In other words, a small proportion of carbohydrates ensures the normal digestion of animal protein, from which the cat receives energy and building material for the whole organism.

The pet approaches the fifth point usually to a vertical surface, raises its tail, shakes it and releases a few trickles of urine. And she doesn’t just pee at all (the little need of the female is seated), so the mustachioed prankster puts her “brand” marking on the surface that interests her. In this article, we will understand why the cat marks the territory, and also find out how to deal with such behavior.
