    Why do cats and dogs in developed countries like the US and UK eat better food than Humans in countries like Pakistan and continents like Africa? I was real curious and this didn't seem right to me

    Because the food is produced in the developed countries and it's hard and expensive getting it to the places that need it. Not to mention the people will pay more money for it to feed their cats than people in Africa will.

    Because they can afford to give their pets better food, cultural differences too, pets are treated more like family across the Western world whilst in other places they tend not be.

    This is an example of economics dictating culture rather than the other way round, as the standard of living in Pakistan and Africa will increase so will cultural attitudes towards pets.
