The information reported here will provide a review of the importance of diet, feeding behaviors, and environmental influences that may affect the health of cats. Various associations between some chronic diseases of cats and their diet and confined environment will be reviewed. Our objective was to help veterinarians, cat owners, and people who love cats provide optimal nutrition and a healthy environment for this wild carnivore that has been moved indoors.


This website is a labor of love brought to you by the volunteers at Paws For Change. Our goal is to put together links to published research studies, articles, books, and other media which have influenced our approach to feeding diets that include fresh and raw foods. We encourage everyone to research further to gain a fuller understanding of any controversies or debates involved. It is a growing collection and we welcome you to use the submission form below if you have studies you'd like to suggest be included here.
