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.

In nature, cats (like other predators) make up for the need for fast carbohydrates through the contents of the stomachs of prey (rodents and birds eating cereals and plant foods).

In this article, we will understand why the cat marks the territory, and also find out how to deal with such behavior.
