Support Our Locally Owned Pet Supply Store with Your Order of Cat Food for Cats
How do you know your cat is getting the nutrition they need? You're bombarded with cat food commercials, each stating that their product is more effective than the others. Paw Print Pantry in Niantic, CT can help reduce the confusion. We stock a wide variety of cat foods and can help 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 wide selection of nutritious food, based upon what they could catch. But your domestic cat depends on you to feed them. Paw Print Pantry 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 include carbohydrates, which are digestible and offer energy.
Reading a Cat Food Label
Cat food companies are required to put certain 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 instructions, but they're a guideline and not a "one size fits all." Your vet's guidance takes priority.
Try to find the nutritional adequacy statement, which explains whether the food is intended for an adult cat or a kitten.

Absolutely obsessed with this place!!!
I've been feeding my pets raw food for about a year now. I have to travel from colchester to either glastonbury or waterford to get them the instinct raw food bcuz no where closer sells raw.
My cat is not a big fan of the instinct brand which only has a chicken variety. I goggled places in CT that sell raw and came across The Paw Print Pantry which sells all kinds of different varieties so I decided to check it out.
Not only does my cat LOVE the primal beef and salmon raw food that paw print sells but I was blown away by all the amazing treats/bones/foods/milks/etc. that this place carries!
It's amazing how clear their knowledge is on pet nutrition just by seeing the items they offer.
They have raw goats milk, beef trachea, green lipped mussels and all kinds of other amazingly healthy options that are hard to find elsewhere.
They have a dry treat/bone area where they sell individual items for great prices!! Between $.99 & $2.99 I was able to get my dog some great healthy chews for such a great price that he absolutely loved.
We also tried the kangaroo treats for dogs and both my dog and cat loved them.
I was so impressed with the selections and prices and even more excited that the lady behind the counter also feeds her cats raw and was so helpful and nice.
This is one of the best pet stores I've ever been to (and I've been to probly been to a good 70% of the ones in CT.
Highly recommend this place to everyone who has a cat or dog that they want to start or continue on a healthy diet!!
Great selection of anything and everything you could need
Best in the business. The owner Jennifer is amazing!
Needed some help with one senior labradoodle and super picky Havanese. The staff was SUPER helpful and attentive. She even sent me home with some samples to try to make sure my picky eater is satisfied. We got lucky and the samples sent home with me worked out. I'll be returning today to stock up.
I've visited just about every other pet store between this one and Clinton and this is the ONLY store that went above and beyond to help us find the perfect foods for our fur babies.
