The Vegecat™ supplement finally frees cats from slaughterhouse products and has been in production since 1986. It contains semi-moist as well as kibble recipes and is current with nutrient requirements.
Most cats are fine with Vegecat™, but some 10% of all cats are prone to urinary problems and those cats are better served with Vegecat phi™, which contains a safe acidifier. If your cat develops any kind of urinary problems, you’d want to switch to Vegecat phi™. All cats can use Vegecat phi™ as well as Vegecat KibbleMix™, a step saving formulation that only requires the addition of bread flour, water and oil to make kibble in your own oven. Vegecat KibbleMix™ makes a dry kibble while Vegecat™ and Vegecat phi™ have wet and dry food recipes. The Vegecat KibbleMix™ is comparable to Vegecat™, as it does not have the additional acidity of Vegecat phi™.
The pH of a cat’s urine can be checked, and a range of pH 6.0 to 6.5 is ideal. If you find that the urine pH is too alkaline, Vegecat phi™ is a good option to increase acidity.
Suggested recipes are included in each container.
You might ask, “Don’t cats, as true carnivores, need certain nutrients only flesh can provide?”
Vegecat™ products contain the below rare nutrients cats require, all from non-animal sources.
Cats need dietary taurine (a secondary amino acid), but significant quantities occur naturally only in animal tissues. A shortage causes blindness and heart disease.
Through biosynthesis most mammals make vitamin A from the yellow pigment (carotene) found in vegetables. Cats lack this ability, making a dietary source of this vitamin, found naturally only in animal tissues, essential.
Vitamin D is another essential vitamin, found naturally only in animal tissues as vitamin D3. Vegecat™ contains vitamin D2.
The essential fatty acid arachidonate is rare in non-animal sources. Cats require it for numerous vital metabolic processes including reproduction.

If you use your own recipes instead of ours (using our recipes as a guide), a 10 pound (4.5 kg) cat would get 1 ¼ teaspoon (6 ml/5.3 g) per day of Vegecat™ supplement.
Kittens (up to 12 months old) and queens need VEGEKIT™ supplement, formulated for growth. For convenience, Vegekit™ recipes may be fed to adult cats as well.
Use the kibble recipe (in the Vegecat™ instructions) to make a delicious kibble. Cut kibble pieces larger or smaller according to the size of your cats.
