Stand Behind Our Community Pet Supply Store with Your Purchase of Food Toppers
Just 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. Bark & Purr in Yonkers, NY can help you cut through the confusion. We have a wide array of cat foods and can assist you in choosing the one that is perfect for your precious pet.
Your cat is a hunter, descended from a long line of hunters. Wild cats naturally ate a good range of nutritious food, based upon what they could snag. But your domestic cat counts on you to feed them. Bark & Purr has all the foods that will keep them satisfied and nutritious.
What Nutrients Does Your Cat Need?
For starters, your cat is a carnivore. They really need meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This can be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to deliver energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. Additionally, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and provide 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 minimum and maximum amount of nutrients such as fats, protein, and fiber.
Search for the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is meant for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels include feeding directions, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's recommendations takes precedence.
Learn about food descriptions. There's a distinction 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.
In any case, look at nutrients in addition to ingredients. After all, nutrition is what your cat needs.

Excellent experience at Bark&Purrr... brought my cat Cody, who is very anxious. B&P passed with flying colors, very pleasant, did a great job. Highly recommended. Wouldn't go anywhere else to have my cat groomed!
I love this place! Everyone is so loving and helpful.

Great place for your dogs to get groomed. Amazing staff and great atmosphere
I take my dog to daycare here two to three times a week and I have him groomed here once a month. The service is excellent and it's really great to support a family black owned business. It might be slightly more expensive than a Petco or PetSmart (were talking the difference between 3-6$ depending on the service) but who cares it's marginal and much closer to my house and way better service with way more love and care that you don't get from corporate places. they remember my dog's name and he absolutely loves going there they are the absolute sweetest! HIGHLY RECCOMEND!
