Pet Pantry in Colorado Springs, CO can help you cut through the complication. We stock a wide range of cat foods and can assist you in choosing the one that is just right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Pet Pantry has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They require meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. Also, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular information on their labels, for instance, ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels contain feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes lead.
Comprehend food descriptions. There's a distinction between "chicken cat food" and "cat food with chicken." Chicken cat food must be 95 percent chicken, while cat food with chicken can have as little as 3 percent. Food called "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs.

I love it that I can return food my pet dislikes. They keep all my receipts on file so I know which foods we have tried already. They do a lot of rescue support work and have the neighborhood shop atmosphere.
Friendly and helpful staff. Prices for premium pet supplies is surprisingly competitive with online retailers.
Great individual service on leads & harness shopping and fitting! After many poor experiences in various pet supply stores in Colorado Springs and Monument we had literally wasted over $200 in purchases of leads and harnesses that our Westies were able to wiggle out of and escape from. Mikayla spent the time with us necessary to make sure our Westies were properly fitted with the right leads and harnesses. We were allowed to walk our dogs throughout the store to make sure the leads and harnesses were right for them. Cathy (store manager) was very patient in answering our numerous questions over the phone before we made the trip in. Best pet store and service we’ve experienced in over 50 years of dog ownership!!!
Great place for anything you need for your pet. I have been washing my dogs here for years and will continue to do so. The staff is friendly and will do anything to make your experience excellent (they even cleaned up after my dog when he got sick).
Excellent store, great prices, and great customer service.
