The Vegecat™ supplement frees cats from slaughterhouse products and has been in production since 1986. Home prepared, vegan, Vegecat™ meals allow you to eliminate the toxicity of meat-based food and commercial food while providing all your cat needs to be healthy and thrive. Vegecat™ supplements ship with a recipe brochure that contains semi-moist food recipes as well as dry kibble recipes. The Vegecat™ diet provides complete vegan nutrition for your feline family member.
Most cats are fine with the Vegecat™ supplement but 10% of all cats are prone to urinary problems and those cats are better served with the Vegecat phi™ supplement containing a safe urine acidifier. In most cases, using Vegecat™ along with VegeYeast (an especially acid food yeast that supplies B vitamins) maintains proper pH balance. 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 ship with the Vegecat™ supplement. All recipes require food yeast for B vitamins. We highly recommend using VegeYeast in the recipes but a locally sourced brewer’s yeast or nutritional yeast can be used as a substitute. Do not use baker’s yeast.
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 from NON-ANIMAL sources.
Cats need dietary taurine (a secondary amino acid), but significant quantities only occur naturally in animal tissue. A shortage causes blindness and heart disease. Synthetic taurine is added to Vegecat™ and most other commercial food, as the naturally occurring taurine in meat-based food is cooked or processed out during production.
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. Vegecat™ contains preformed retinol vitamin A that is bioavailable to cats.
Vitamin D is another essential vitamin, found naturally only in animal tissues as vitamin D3. Vegecat™ contains vegan 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 [pdf download]) to make a delicious kibble. Cut kibble pieces larger or smaller according to the size of your cats.
