Stand Behind Our Community Pet Supply Store with Your Order of Pouched Food
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each saying that their product is more effective than the others. Bark & Purr in Yonkers, NY can help you cut through the confusion. We store a wide variety of cat foods and can assist you in finding 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 assortment of nutritious food, based on what they could nab. But your domestic cat is dependent 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 need to have meat in some form: animal protein for necessary amino acids. This may be poultry, beef, lamb, fish, or eggs. They need fats to provide energy and help absorb vitamins. Vitamins such as A, D, B1, B2, B3, and B6. Minerals including iron, sodium, and chloride. In addition, some cat foods include carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put specific information on their labels, like ingredients in descending order of weight, and guaranteed analysis, which tells you minimum and maximum amount of nutrients like fats, protein, and fiber.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy STment, which reveals whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.
Labels consist of feeding advice, but they're a guideline and not "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
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!
