Unfortunately, urinary tract problems are all too
common in cats. Cats evolved as desert animals, so
they don’t have a strong instinctive drive to drink
water. This can result in the accumulation of
minerals in the bladder and urethra, which may lead
to the formation of crystals or stones.
Here are some of the warning signs of which you need
to be aware:
• Frequent urination
• Urination in places other than the litter box
• Straining to urinate
• Bloody urination
There is evidence to suggest that stress can be one
of the primary causes of Feline Lower Urinary Tract
Disease (FLUTD). Stress can lead to the release of
hormones that constrict the muscles of the lower
urinary tract. Changes in the household routine, a
new companion animal in the home, changes in weather
and lack of attention can all lead to increased
stress in cats. Be as in-tune with your cat as
possible, and take steps to decrease or eliminate
stressors in his or her life.
Using a continuous water fountain can attract the
attention of cats, encouraging them to drink more.
Using canned foods that contain water from
biological sources will help to increase the amount
of fluid intake.
By taking measures now, you may be able to support
your cat's urinary health, helping him or her to
live a longer, healthier life.

Although there is no true formula for feline water
intake, we do know that cats generally will not
consume enough water on their own to sustain organ
functioning for a long and healthy life. This is
because cats evolved as desert animals, so their
sense of thirst is not nearly as acute as that of
other mammals. In fact, many cats will only drink an
average of two milliliters of water for every gram
of dry food eaten.
Based on the physiology and evolution of the cat, we
recommend adding a high quality canned food to the
diet to ensure that they get enough water. Water is
not only necessary for a healthy urinary tract – the
body requires water to metabolize food and for all
other chemical processes occurring on a cellular
Choice is a revolutionary premium
canned food that is scientifically-formulated to
provide your cat with a meal that is similar in
nutrition and moisture to how felines feed in the
wild. This unique formula contains fresh, highly
digestible, human-quality proteins from organic
chicken, turkey, chicken liver and shrimp.
Instinctive Choice contains nutrient rich water or
“biological water,” which contains nutritional
components found in meats and chicken broth. This
allows your cat to obtain moisture closer to the way
a cat in the wild would get it. Further, we’ve
included couch grass, which contains many nutrients
that help support a healthy urinary tract.
Instinctive Choice also contains added Omega-3 and
Omega-6 fatty acids, chelated minerals, taurine, l-carnitine,
vitamin E and a superior blend of vitamins,
minerals, and antioxidants to help contribute to a
healthy daily diet.
Not only that, it also has a savory taste that your
kitten or cat will love. The organic chicken,
turkey, succulent shrimp and chicken liver are
cooked in a delicious broth that is seasoned with a
little bit of rosemary.
Now you can finally give your cat what he or she
truly craves, with the water content they require!
Most research facilities
still perform tests on animals. These animals are
obtained through “dealers” that are classified as
either Class A or Class B. Class A dealers breed
animals solely for the purpose of testing. Class B
dealers deliver animals acquired from “random
sources”; sources which can include adoptions from
animal shelters, responding to “free to good home”
ads, from capturing strays … even from kidnapping
dogs and cats from their homes.
At present, both the U.S. House and Senate are
considering legislation to help further the
protections afforded companion animals in the U.S.
The proposed bipartisan legislation would prohibit
Class B dealers from selling animals to
laboratories, to help ensure that cats and dogs used
for research are not obtained through fraudulent
practices or theft.
Both pieces of legislation are pending decisions, so
contact your legislators if you are concerned about
these issues. Be sure to mention the legislation by
name – The Pet Safety and Protection Action (Senate
bill 451 and House bill 5229).
