These differences become particularly apparent when you compare a carnivore like a cat with a herbivore like a goat or a horse. Goats and horses evolved from ancestors that subsisted on plants and adapted parts of their digestive tracts into massive fermentation vats which enabled them to efficiently utilize cellulose, the major carbohydrate of plants. In contrast, cats evolved from animals that lived on the carcasses of other animals, and have digestive systems that reflect this history i.e extremely small fermentation vats and essentially no ability to utilize cellulose. The digestive system depicted below - a carnivore is the simplest among mammals.
