From what I've read it's not a good idea to feed a purely vegan diet to cats.

 

Here'a a nice long thread about vegan cat food which may answer your questions (haven't had time to re-read it to make sure though!) :)

We now feed our cats around a 90% vegan diet with fish based products maybe once or twice a week. We started off as pure vegan and everything was fine for almost 4 months but we got a bit worried about not knowing enough and doing damage.

The vegan kibble we buy states that it has all the nutrients cats need including taurine so they probably would have been ok on it and once we have researched in more depth we will move them back onto it. They enjoy the taste as well.

It's funny when we get abuse from pet owners about feeding them a vegan diet. For starters at least we know what our companions are eating rather than processed food that contains 10% of meat which is either slaughterhouse scraps or meat that is considered unsaved for human consumption.

Most of the vegan petfoods are alright for human consumption but meat based ones aren't.

Vegan Cat FAQ http://www.vegancats.com/veganfaq.php

Ami cat food has the best reviews for vegan food and it's on the vegan cat site.

If you want something non vegan, others can fill you on probably on what they use.

If you want to use non vegan food, it doesn't make you not vegan or anything. Most of what they would get are byproducts and scraps off the slaughterhouse floor (Gary Yourofsky touches on this. You should check out his amazing speech on youtube) so it's not like you are "usually" further supporting the slaughter of animals.

Eco dogs and cats is also a good resource: https://www.ecodogsandcats.com/
