You should definitely consider using holistic cat food for your cat. Holistic cat food is food that has no artificial ingredients in it.

The cat industries food producers are one of the biggest culprits in the early deaths of our lovable furry family members.

When you have food that is free of everything that is not found naturally then you have holistic food. The problem with cat food being holistic is that you never know what is actually in it.
