The Very Best Choice of Cat Food. In-Store Pickup, Curbside Pickup.
Support Our Locally Owned Pet Store with Your Purchase of Cat Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they really need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each claiming that their product is more effective than the others. Ma & Paws Pet Supplies in Hendersonville, TN can help reduce the confusion. We carry a number of cat foods and can help you in selecting 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 variety of nutritious food, based on what they could snag. But your domestic cat is dependent on you to feed them. Ma & Paws Pet Supplies 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 need to have 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. In addition, some cat foods incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put particular 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 referred to as "chicken dinner" (or chicken formula) can be anywhere between 25 and 95 percent chicken.
Labels have feeding directions, 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 tells whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.

Our daughter was shopping for a doggie bed for her two min pins. She described to me that she wanted a large enough one that they could cuddle together or not if they wanted to. She said she wanted a removable cover she could wash and that would hold up . She was also looking for rain and cold coats /sweaters for them. She stopped in at ,”Ma and paws pet supply “and said it was the tiniest store in the strip mall. She really didn’t expect much. The kind and helpful worker showed her all the beds, sweaters and coats . She was very impressed as was I .He showed her the dog beds and duvet covers for the super plush bed she ended up buying. She found everything she had told me she was looking for. She also got their toenails trimmed ! She and I are both very impressed with the quality service she received from the kind and knowledgable helpers. She was also told about their pet food line that is high quality and actually made in the USA from real , human quality ingredients! She sent me a picture of the two in their new sweaters on their new bed.
My daughter loves the idea of supporting small independent businesses in her area. She will be back.
The friendliest customer service in any pet store around. I live 30 minutes away and still only use this store for all of my pets needs. They stayed open late for me on a sunday, when i was in desperate need of some food. 10/10
My absolute favorite place to go to get premium pet food from knowledgeable people!
