Being natural carnivores cats are used to obtaining most of their moisture from the animals that they consume. Canned cat food is a great way to provide your cat with the animal protein they need along with a healthy proportion of moisture similar to what they would get in the wild. Some experts feel that a combination of 60% wet food plus 40% dry kibble provides a balanced diet for cats. It is also very helpful that canned cat foods come in an almost endless array of flavors. So when your cat goes on strike and will not eat their kibble or the particular flavor of canned food you were feeding them last week, you can easily switch to a new flavor. We will never outsmart our cats, but using variety and rotation of proteins to satisfy their finicky natures can be really good for their health.   And who knows, maybe that is what their is trying to tell us anyway.
