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 stating that their product is better than the others. Mystic Pet Shop in Mystic, CT can help reduce the confusion. We stock a variety of cat foods and can assist 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 assortment of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat relies on you to feed them. Mystic Pet Shop 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 meat in some form. This could 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 incorporate carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific 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 include feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes precedence.
Look for the nutritional adequacy statement, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.

This is a place, by far, our puppy loved. She didn’t want to leave.
This staff was so accommodating and offered treats for our puppy, Charlie to try.

Always top stars
No idea why you would shop anywhere else if you live in the Mystic area -- Genevieve and John are two of the most wonderful people I've met. I always look forward to stopping in and catching up with them. They care so deeply about their customers (human and four-legged). They carry an amazing selection of food and treats, as well as toys, frozen bones, goats milk, etc. Genevieve is so knowledgeable about pet nutrition, and I feel good knowing that anything I buy here is going to be healthy for my pets. This is a fantastic small business that I'm so happy to be able to patronize. They go above and beyond for their community! If you've been thinking about getting your pets on a high quality diet, look no further than Mystic pet shop.
They are the only place that I know of that makes small cement lions at a descent price. I've bought 2 sets for my family and thus far, have not disapproved.
