If you're concerned about proper feline nutrition, ingredient quality, allergies, nutrition profiles, weight loss or simply feeding your finicky cat, the CatFoodDB is the perfect research tool to help you find the best cat foods - the ones that meet your cat's individual needs.
CatFoodDB: Decoding nutrition labels so you don't have to!
At CatFoodDB, we calculate two ratings for each product. These values are then combined to create the the overall product score.
The first rating is based on the product's ingredient list. Each cat food product is assigned a value from (low) to (high) paws. Generally speaking, higher ratings are rewarded to those products that contain quality proteins and limit the amount of cheap fillers in their most plentiful ingredients.
The second rating is based on our analysis of the product's published nutritional information. Higher rated products will contain more protein and fewer carbohydrates than average. Each product is assigned a score from to paws based on this nutritional analysis. Please note that the nutritional values used are only an approximation and may not represent "as fed" values due to variations in manufacturing and the laws that specify how these values are reported.
Finally, the nutrition and ingredient ratings are added together to create a score ranging from 1 - 10 paws for the evaluated product.
Please note that although a high score may be indicative of a higher-quality product it is not a guarantee. Similarly, a low score does not necessarily indicate an inferior product. The best food for your cat is the one that meets their individual needs.
Occasionally the cat food manufacturer will publish calorie counts amounts for their individual products, and these values will differ from the ones shown we display. This can happen because, as explained, our calorie counts are only estimations, meanwhile the manufacturer will be able to determine more exact values. The authoritative source for all nutritional information for any pet food is always the pet food manufacturer.
The costs of hosting this site and its associated expenses are covered through the Amazon and Chewy.com affiliate links connected to each product. Should you chose to make a purchase via one of these links, I will earn a small commission at no additional cost to you.

Regrettably, recent changes in Google's search algorithms and reductions in affiliate commission rates by both Amazon and Chewy have impacted CatFoodDB's visibility and revenue. To ensure the site remains financially sustainable, I've had to introduce advertisements on CatFoodDB pages. Should the affiliate purchases once again be sufficient to cover the site's operational costs, I will gladly remove these advertisements. In the meantime, I recommend using a reliable ad-blocker (I personally use AdBlock), which should conceal most of the ads.

Hi, my name's Tammy and this is my site! I'm a web developer by day, and by night I'm the human for 3 cats. Concerned about what I was feeding my feline dependants, I set off to find a cat food nutritional database similar to the dozens that exist for human food. Unable to find one, I built my own. More on my story can be found on the About Me & CatFoodDB page.
