Wild Cat vs. Urban Cat: Significantly different lifestyles!

Inherently, cats are carnivores.

How does that influence urban cats' diet, which has a different lifestyle than those of the wild cats?

The answer is: hunt vs. fed

In order to survive, a wild cat needs to hunt for food by itself. Wild cats are able to prey on several food sources, such as a mouse, bird, or rabbit. Being exposed to prey on a variety of food sources means that wild cats are able to obtain a balanced nutritional diet, which is appropriate for an animal body that requires significant energy sources from protein, fat, carbohydrates, and other essential nutrients. 

On the other hand, a house cat relies on food that is provided by its owner. This means that house cats are unable to choose their food. Thus, it is essential that the owner provides a balanced diet incorporating all the essential nutrients and energy resources. If not, the cat may be malnourished. Being malnourished does not immediately pose danger, but prolonged malnutrition may lead to chronic diseases.

Other than their preying methods, house and wild cat also differs in the amount of activity and exercise. House cats are considered to be relatively inactive while wild cats are more active. Hence, house cats should not consume a diet that is too high in protein because it may cause a burden to the kidney.
