Why your cat likes human food more than its own

Feeding pets table scraps has often been labeled as a big no-no by commercial pet food companies. But if you've fed your cat table scraps in the past, you probably noticed that he would much rather eat human food than his own. Your cat's ancestral diet was very, very different than it is today, which is why your pet instinctively craves certain human foods and actually prefers them.

Cats are not meant to eat commercial kibble because they require quality protein to develop and thrive. It's hard to tell when they spend all their time sleeping indoors, but cats are actually both predators and carnivores. Their teeth allow cats to grab and puncture prey with ease. That's why cats in the wild can survive by relying on their predator instincts.

So then what human foods can or should cats eat? If you make a habit of eating processed foods every night, then it's best not to give your precious pet the leftovers. A variety of healthy foods, such as meats, bones and vegetables, however, can benefit your cat and are actually a much better alternative than the dry kibble he's been eating in the past.

You're not always going to have quality table scraps to feed your cat, and that's OK. Another way to provide healthy food for your cats is to stop buying commercial food products and switch to a more healthy alternative. Wysong's dry cat foods are designed to provide similar benefits as the archetypal carnivorous diets that cats need and want.
