Support Our Locally Owned Pet Store with Your Purchase of Cat Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is more effective than the others. Roo's Holistic Pet Supplies in Muncie, IN can help reduce the confusion. We carry a number of cat foods and can help you in finding the one that is right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a wide variety of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Roo's Holistic Pet Supplies has all the foods that will keep them happy and healthy.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need meat in some form. This could be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Also, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Understand food descriptions. There's a distinction between "chicken cat food" and "cat food with chicken." Chicken cat food must be 95 percent chicken, while cat food with chicken can have as little as 3 percent. Food referred to as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels include feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
Search for the nutritional adequacy statement, which tells whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.

Roo's supplies customers with a plethora of of fresh, top notch products that are bound to show you a new side of your pet you've never seen! The improvement you see in your pets when they are on quality food and treats is absoloutly astonishing. It really goes to show how quality products make your pets feel so good. My cats switched to raw/freeze dried raw around last October and they are on Ultra Oil as well. They have so much more energy, soft fur, great skin health, and they love feeding time! My roommate started feeding their pup raw food. He would turn his nose up to most food and wouldn't eat, but with raw food he absoloutly demolished his servings and looks forward to meal time! Yes, it is pricier than big box pet stores but the quality of the products and how the products make your pets feel make the price completely worth it!
Awesome store! It's nice to have things that are good for pets so they can be healthy. Hailey is very knowledgeable regarding the needs of pets - especially dogs and how to help them when things aren't right.
Roo’s is fantastic!! Hailey helped me pick out a new dog food for my small breed pups. I never had one of my pets adjust so quickly to a diet change, very happy with results and cost.
I've been to Roo's a couple of times but have always been a little overwhelmed to ask questions. Last week, I asked a staff member for advice about my picky Shih Tzu/Yorkie that just won't eat her food - they ended up giving me 2 weeks worth of food for her as samples. We ended up finding one that she'll eat and I definitely will be back to grab more. Thank you so much Roo's Holistic you're literally a lifesaver.
