Support Our Locally Owned Pet Shop with Your Order of Dry Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each declaring that their product is more effective than the others. Dog Day Afternoon in Belleville, IL can help reduce the confusion. We carry a 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 cats naturally ate a wide selection of nutritious food, based upon what they could capture. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Dog Day Afternoon 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 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 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 called "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels include feeding instructions, 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.
Still have questions? Just ask us! Dog Day Afternoon in Belleville, IL has everything you need for your pet. We offer a wide assortment 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 (618) 233-0060 for all your pet's needs.

Cathy has been so caring and helpful when we found out our sweet little guy is diabetic. Her knowledge, recommendations and advice have been priceless in getting him all of the food, treats and vet care that he deserves. I can't thank her enough!!

Our Goldendoodle was professionally groomed today. We've been taking her there for years and have never been disappointed. We'll keep going there probably a long time, too!
They clipped my 50# dogs nail. So very happy with the service. Appointment was for 10am and was leaving 10 minutes later. Will worth the price as we don’t have to medicate and man handle Lucy. Thank you 😊
They have been supplying our four kitties with good quality food for a long time now and they're always so nice and friendly and helpful! We love our local pet store!
