How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is more effective than the others. Pet Playhouse in Plantsville, CT can help reduce the confusion. We carry a wide variety of cat foods and can assist you in finding the one that is ideal for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a wide selection of nutritious food, based on what they could capture. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Pet Playhouse has all the foods that will keep them happy and healthy.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They need meat in some form. This may be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to supply energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Additionally, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, such as ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you the minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Learn about food descriptions. There's a distinction 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 described as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels contain feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes precedence.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Still have questions? Just ask us! Pet Playhouse in Plantsville, CT has everything you need for your pet. We carry a wide selection of major brands and our educated staff is eager to answer your questions and help you choose the best food for your cat. Stop by our store or call (860) 426-9640 for all your pet's needs.

We have been treating our Great Dane for 2 yrs with liver disease, he was on expensive medication that I had to force down him . Unfortunately that medication is constantly back ordered , a bottle last 15 days and is 75$ ( yes because I have a giant dog). I still wasn’t getting any results from it. I started him on a supplement chew 6 months ago with only increments of 10 coming down in values if at all . I reached out to debbie, and we discussed some options… well we have been on “liver defense” for almost 5 weeks. I repeated necessary blood work and my boys values have dropped buy 140 points in just that little time . my boy is doing great and is only on vetri-science liver chews and liver defense , for his liver . The only results I’m seeing is after adding the defense! We are super thankful for your help debbie !! And we love you !!
Customer service here is incredible!! The owner brought to my attention that there was a recall on the food I was feeding my dog and turns out I had the recalled lot at home. My dog has food allergies. She helped me to find a replacement food and offered free samples and a refund for the bag of food that didn't work out. The owner called me the next day to see how my dog did with the new food. Really cares about animals. Best Customer service I have had in years. Great example of the importance of shopping local. Thank you Pet Playhouse!
I am so happy I found this store. As a first time pet owner of a cat. I would like to give a great big thank you to the owner/operator of this store.
She was absolutely amazing. MY pet was not well. It was a combination of issues,nerves and stress also because he is 6 month kitty in a new home ,traveled from overseas. He had tummy issues. I went into the store looking for a change of diet and was recommended a very clean and natural,healthy brand that worked well with him.
A great big thank you to her ,you can tell there is only a certain set of ppl that really care about animals.
I can you tell she is one of them.
