Want to extend your cat’s nine lives? Stop feeding her human food and get her moving.
I don’t know anyone who feeds their cat what we’d call “human food.”
I know a lot of people (like damn near everyone) who feeds their cat packaged “cat food” sold in various places. If you look at the labels on said catfood you will find that a huge majority of them contain a lot of various grain products, all of which are by definition high-glycemic.
They’re used because they’re cheap, incidentally.
How many carbs does the natural diet of a cat — that is, a mouse or bird — have?
