Several studies between 1928 and 1978 have stated that dogs and cats on free-choice feeding are able to regulate their food intake and won’t exceed their daily energy requirements. Those studies are now a stepping stone for claims that free feeding is the best way to feed a cat. But aren’t they forgetting something?
Somehow, the biggest secret of the cat food industry has spread out. Cats should not eat grain! It was kept secret for decades, to sell ‘complete and balanced’ cat food, which contains grain, grain, grain, a small amount of meat, and a ton of flavor enchanters, to make your cat believe it’s edible. Today, instead of trying to deflate the truth, pet food industry have chosen to respond. They now put large ‘GRAIN FREE’ labels on packages, to appeal people who now know. Unfortunately, in most cases, that label is a big, fat lie!
