The Greater Way

Core Values and Beliefs in a Prevailing Science Proven

Our Motto is Proper nutrition is a solid foundation for a promising future and a life of great health!

Biologically, cats are carnivores, and our pet cats are descendants of their wild counterparts. This simply means that they have short-chain intestines, which means they are designed to eat animal meat, bone and organs. The only vegetation that they get in the wild is from the predigested vegetable matter of the prey they are consuming. While a raw diet is best, that may not be convenient for everyone, so we promote and feed a diet of dry and canned cat food.

The foods that we believe in feeding our pets and feline companions should be high in protein and low in carbohydrates. If possible, grain-free with high meat content. When are cats are fed in such a manner, it will show in good muscle tone, glossier coats, more Supple skin, smaller and less smelly stools, fresher breath, healthier gums and teeth, and brighter eyes. Mother Nature did not design cats and dogs to eat grains, especially the most allergenic grains such as corn, wheat, and soy. They were designed to eat meat, bones and organs, and some vegetable matter. We must replicate this as much as possible.

As it pertains to grain-free diets, that particular diet should state that it has a high meat content because animals digest and absorb and assimilate animal protein much better than vegetable and carb-based protein. However, a few good cat foods incorporate healthier grains, such as oats, spelt, brown rice, and millet. Having said that, those particular grains which have a lower glycemic index should be no more than 35% of the total diet.

The inclusion of omega-3 fatty acids, holistic supplements, and even Raw supplementation always enhances the health of our feline companions. Especially in times of shedding, seasonal changes, and medical issues that have arisen. Never fall for brand and breed marketing ploys. If a cat’s food doesn’t match the biology of a cat, it’s inappropriate may only allow our pets to live and not thrive. When fed a biologically appropriate diet, our pets will not only live but thrive, and the changes of chronic medical problems are significantly reduced and most often avoided. In conclusion, a high protein/low carb diet high in animal content is always appropriate, especially when the food is well balanced and formulated. As a result, our pets will eat less, shed less, poop less, and look great.
