Taurine is important for a healthy heart, vision, and a few other things. Most pet foods have taurine in them, and you can probably check the label to see just how much. I'm pretty sure its not a problem in most pet foods. I don't think you have to worry about your cat not getting enough.
Some people choose to feed a raw diet. Chicken hearts I believe are a great source of taurine.
I'm sure you'll get a few other people with more helpful info, but that's pretty basic for what it is and why they need it.
