Serious cat breeders are very unlikely to sell their pets to chain pet stores. The kittens in these stores are generally obtained from opportunistic breeders who want to cash in on the popularity of certain cat breeds and who may have little interest in proper genetics or preventive health care. Nearly 90 percent of pet cats owned in this country are mixed breeds. Mixed-breed cats are generally healthy and hardy and make excellent pets. Mixed-breed kittens are not difficult to find, especially in the spring when the breeding season is at its height.

Cats are able to utilize carbohydrates and fats for energy, but they have an obligatory need for energy from protein sources even when they are fed enough other calories. Semi-moist foods, once popular, are falling out of favor. While some cats loved them, the chemical odor was not appreciated by others. Many semi-moist foods are preserved with a high sugar content and many contained propylene glycol, which can damage cat’s red blood cells. We do not recommend semi-moist diets, although an occasional semi-moist treat is all right.
