Evidence suggests that the our cat's ancestors were domesticated from the African wildcat, probably 9,000-10,000 years ago, coinciding with the rise of agriculture and the need to protect harvests stored in granaries from rodents.
Wild cats naturally preyed upon the rodents that ate from these granaries, ultimately this leading to them earning their place in towns and cities.
Praised for controlling these rodents, the domesticated cat became a symbol of grace and poise.
Nowadays cats are often referred to as obligate carnivores; obligate means "by necessity".
Combining obligate with carnivore is pretty clear, cats must eat meat, it's a biological necessity!
Cats became obligate carnivores as a result of their ancestral diets, explained above.
Cats and many other obligate carnivores have lost the ability to make amino acids and vitamins in their own bodies.
Cats also have a high requirement for Taurine, which is naturally found almost exclusively in meat.
Arginine, also found in meat, is so critical to a cat that meals without it can be fatal.
Simply put, Cats must eat meat to live and they meet their blood glucose requirements using protein and one defining characteristic of an obligate carnivore is a requirement for a high amount of protein in their diet.
This is the prime reason for formulating AATU for Cats, a bespoke and unique 85/15 diet specially made for Cats who must have a high meat content diet.
AATU Cat Salmon is the first single protein 85/15 diet to include a minimum of 44% freshly prepared preservative free salmon meat.
AATU Cat is so highly concentrated we have to use 3kg of ingredients to make 1kg of finished product.
It is also the first Cat product from Pet Food UK to include their unique SUPER-8 a bespoke combination of 8 vegetables, 8 fruits, 8 herbs and 8 botanicals and spices.
At Pet Food UK we are very proud of all our products and now AATU Cat brings us a fabulous opportunity to bring a naturally unique and evolutionary appropriate food for your pets.
