The quantity of protein required depends with the age of your cat. Kittens need a diet that supplies approximately 50% of protein where as 30% is OK for adult cats. Senior cats need less as they're often less active and the liver and kidneys are to a lesser extent less efficient in removing the toxic by-products created in the breaking down process.

      I'm so much in agreement with you, I was tepmted to use my caps lock key.In fact, here goes. HOLY CRAP, YOU'RE SO RIGHT!Unfortunately, they're selling to us instead of cats. If they marketed to cats we'd have lovely bloody carcasses on the labels.I usually spit when I see these commercials, and when I'm in the grocery store, if I feel like getting all dramatic, I just pick up a can or a bag and start reading the label. The other thing I despise about them is the niched foods ones targeting breeds and age groups. Pfft!
