A Non-GMO Uristic Formula
Uristic is a word that means our cat food is optimized for long term urinary tract health. The amino acid Methionine raises the acidity of urine, which helps break down urine crystals, in turn reducing inflammation of the urinary tract. Methionine occurs naturally in our fresh ingredients and we supplement it with DL-Methionine to reach the exact level needed for your cat's long-term health.

Recommended Daily Feeding Information for Adult Cats:
Your cat’s feeding requirements may vary. Adjust quantities as necessary to maintain optimal weight. Feed your adult cat on a “free choice” basis. Serve the recommended amount of food each morning, and allow your cat to “nibble” throughout the day. If you need to feed separate meals, divide daily amount into equal portions. If you’re unsure about how much to feed your cat, seek veterinary advice.
If feeding Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals Cat & Kitten food for the first time, gradually adjust your cat’s current diet to avoid stomach upset. Mix ¼ part Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals food with current food for 2-3 days. Gradually increase the new food and decrease current food over 7-10 days until you are feeding all Grandma Mae’s Country Naturals food. Keep fresh drinking water available at all times.
Recommended Daily Feeding Information for Kittens:
Switch your kitten from mother’s milk to solid food at 4-5 weeks. To ease the adjustment, add one part water to three parts food. Daily portions can vary according to age, activity, and temperament of your kitten. The entire suggested daily amount should be placed in your cat’s feeding dish.
Pregnant or Nursing Queens:
Feed two to three times the adult amount.

About our Wholesome Ingredients
Salmon and Salmon Meal:
In addition to being an excellent source of protein, salmon is one of the best natural sources of omega-3 essential fatty acids.
Peas, Lentils and Chickpeas:
These “legumes” are excellent sources of energy and protein that have a low glycemic index and do not cause blood glucose (sugar) levels to spike right after ingestion. The reason to have more than one is that a cat’s system is likely to digest a variety of these legumes more efficiently than it would if there were only one or two of them.
