The Best Choice of Cat Food. In-Store Pickup, Curbside Pickup.
Support Our Locally Owned Pet Store with Your Order of Cat Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they require? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each alleging that their product is better than the others. Bark n' Purr Boise in Boise, ID can help reduce the confusion. We stock a wide variety of cat foods and can assist you in finding the one that is right for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild felines naturally ate a wide assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could catch. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Bark n' Purr Boise 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 may 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 include 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 described as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels contain 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 reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.

Great local pet supply and lifestyle shop.
I absolutely LOVE this store! The nicest workers ever, and prices nearly the same as the big box pet supply stores. Plus, you are supporting a local business! Win-win-win!
When my 14+ year old cat was declining in health and I needed to try some new food to try to get her to eat, Bark n' Purr went out of their way to provide me with a list of food in their store that met her special diet needs. I appreciated this so much. I would wholeheartedly recommend this business to anyone. They really care!
Absolute favorite please to take my pup! staff is so friendly, and so helpful. They offer the best food and treats for your dog. Along with toys, cat food, bones, clothes, booties, leashes.
