Support Our Locally Owned Pet Store with Your Order of Cat Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is receiving the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is better than the others. Z Bones Pet Mercantile in Bainbridge Island, WA can help reduce the confusion. We stock a wide range of cat foods and can help you in selecting the one that is ideal for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a wide assortment of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Z Bones Pet Mercantile 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 require meat in some form. This can be chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins like A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. 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, 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.
Understand 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 referred to 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 advice takes priority.
Look for the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.

My dog loves to come here. On our morning walls he will start to get excited and when we reach the corner he starts to drag me over there. Great people and products.
Excellent selection of food, snacks, toys and other supplies for cats and dogs. Super clean interior, really knowledgeable staff, and free delivery for island residents! Our go-to store for everything dog-related.
When we lived on Bainbridge Island this is the ONLY place we would shop for our pups. The owner always remembered our dogs' and our names, remembered things we had told her before, and even gave us a wedding gift!!
Our dog, Gunner's, very first toy was from Zbones and three years later it is still a favorite in the toy box.
She is amazing at building relationships with her customers, which always kept us coming back. Being military, we no longer live in the area, but when we visit we make it a point to shop there.
Love this place! Everything I need for my dog including grooming!
