Stand Behind Our Community Pet Shop with Your Purchase of Raw Food
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is superior than the others. Happy Paws Boutique & Bakery in Sarasota, FL can help you cut through the chaos. We have a wide array of cat foods and can aid you in selecting the one that is just right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good variety of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Happy Paws Boutique & Bakery has all the foods that will keep them happy and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need to have meat in some form: animal protein for essential amino acids. This could be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to give energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. In addition, some cat foods consist of carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain information on their labels, for instance, ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels contain feeding instructions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's advice takes priority.
Comprehend food descriptions. There's a big difference between "chicken cat food" and "cat food with chicken." Chicken cat food must be 95 percent chicken, while cat food with chicken can have as little as 3 percent. Food called "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs.

Very reasonably priced, listened to what wanted. Took a few trial and errors, now I have the cut I want for my puppy. He has pants. Lol. He wags his tail and goes happily with them. Good sign and worth a million to me that he’s happy.

Best in town!!! Ask for Baylee she is amazing!!!!!!!
We've been taking our dog LuLu here for about 2 years & have always been happy with everyone there. They are very friendly, loving & caring with our fur baby. Unlike some groomers who keep your pet all day, they have a drop off time & pick up is usually less then 2 hrs. Our dog isn't caged, but is usually behind the counter running around with whomever is working the counter. I highly recommend...
Gorgeous store with such caring staff! These ladies know what they’re doing and are both SUPER helpful and knowledgeable with grooming and pet food choices! We have two mixed breeds who have “a healthy amount of hair”. The grooming staff and front of shop staff have never steered us wrong. Loving this one-stop-shop!!
