Default Cat Food Nutrition Calculator

Hi everyone! I found this lovely calculator the other day when I was worrying about my kitties' nutrition and I thought I would share it because I noticed that a lot of people ask about calories and carbs and for help picking out a good quality food for their cats.

All you have to do is look at the nutrition label on your cat food bag or can and enter the percentages of moisture, protein, fat, fiber, etc. into the yellow fields and then click calculate. Then you'll know approximately how many calories your cat food has and what percentage of the food is comprised of carbs. You generally want a lower carb percentage, a higher protein percentage, and moderate fat. I also read that a cat's prey has something like 70-75% moisture content, so if you're not feeding raw, you want to try to get something close to that, too.

It really helped me stop worrying about whether I'm feeding my cats something that's good for them, so I thought I'd share it here

Here's the link:

I hope this helps answer some people's questions, and please correct me if I'm wrong about something!

PS
I had to do some simple math when entering the percentage for ash and other minerals since that's not usually combined on the cat food labels.
