Harringtons Cat Food

Our team at Harringtons pet food spent many years perfecting our kitten and cat food formulations to produce a healthy, balanced diet to help keep your cat in the best of health. We are now celebrating a milestone – our first birthday!

When we began formulating our cat food diets we considered several important factors:

1. Cats have unique nutritional requirements and rely on a meat and animal tissue to meet their specific needs.
2. Protein is an important factor in your cat’s diet. In the wild cats eat a high protein diet, this protein supplies amino acids which are often known as the ‘building blocks of life’ because they are critical to many bodily functions.
3. Cats require certain amino acids that can only be delivered via the diet; they cannot be synthesized in the body.
4. Taurine is very important to cats and must come from a dietary source. Taurine helps maintain amongst other things, healthy vision and cardiovascular health.
5. Although cats are carnivores, in the wild they will consume prey which inevitably contains small amounts of carbohydrates. Cats are unable to use carbohydrates as efficiently as dogs; however a small amount within a balanced diet does provide a source of energy.
6. We always ensure when formulating that we achieve a healthy balanced ratio of unsaturated omega 6 & 3 fats. Fats are important; they assist in the utilization of fat soluble vitamins A, D, E & K, provide energy and help promote a healthy supple skin and shiny coat.
7. A small amount of fibre in the cat’s diet helps to promote gut motility which in turn supports a healthy digestive system.

At Harringtons we have also formulated our cat food with extras including mannan-oligosaccharides derived from yeast to help support the healthy bacteria in the gut and cranberry known for its ability to help support urinary tract health.

One last thing; always ensure you provide your cat with unlimited access to fresh water. Cats by nature are not frequent drinkers and should be encouraged to do so especially when feeding dry food.

Looking back at Summer

After my very waterey post last month I thought this month I would focus on how I spent the odd day of sun we had this month – yes of course you remember our summer it was that long period of rain broken by a day or two of sun……

Anyway, Dad took me and the whole family to a family fun dog show in our local village! It was great to see so many doggies all in one space and I did have a lot of fun saying hello to various new furiends. We were having a lovely time, and I was busy enjoying checking up on peemail when the day took a serious turn!
Clearly dad recognised me for the handsome specimen of a dog that I am and entered me into a class. I was very nervous as I stood there being judged, and I tried my best to stand really still and show the judge my best side, well what can I say the judge clearly had great taste as he awarded the first prize – although I was slightly less impressed to see that they were handing out Wagg dog food rather than my Harringtons!

Looking good don't you think?!

Looking good don’t you think?!

In fact they even had a big banner promoting this food! Don’t I look great stood in front of it?! Think they may take me on as the face of their food as well? I am sure I would help them sell more – anyway I digress!

Well clearly impressed with my amazing show skills dad decided to see if it ran in the family and entered Walt into his class. Well would you believe he won it too? And ok he was at a slight advantage being the only one in his class but still well done Walt – I am teaching you well!

It was a really lovely day, and it was so nice to see that they had a high class of judge for the show, with such good taste, and no my opinion isn’t even slightly jaded by the fact that I was named as reserved champ overall!!!

Celebratory treats for me I think!!
