Among the scores of findings from the "Pottenger's Cats" study - conducted over 80 years ago - was that the negative effects of feeding a cooked diet accumulated over time and generations. Cats fed a "heated" diet became more conspicuously ill, with each successive generation of non-raw-fed cats showing more and more signs of poor health.
While we have learned a great deal more in the intervening 80 years about the details of sound cat nutrition principles, Dr. Pottenger's study provided a seminal foundation that all of us cat nutrition geeks can only be grateful for!
