Although many people rely on dry cat food as a staple for their cats' diets, canned cat food is recommended for developing strong bones and muscles, while mitigating many potential conditions caused or contributed to by an all-dry cat food diet. Natural Life canned cat foods are higher in fat and protein, and lower in carbohydrates, than dry foods. Their high water content increases the cat's overall fluid intake, which keeps the kidneys and bladder healthy. The higher fat contributes to skin and coat health. Because the ingredients are more easily digested and utilized by the cat's body, canned foods produce less solid waste in the litter box.
