Poseidon eating our chicken in the raw grind with a side of sardine. We don’t normally feed on carpet but he was scared at first and I had to get him out from under the bed somehow!
If you are changing your cats diet, doing it gradually will lessen the chance their tummies will react poorly to the change. Make sure to transition over a week or longer. The first two days feed 1/4 new and 3/4 old, the next three days mix in about 2/3 new with 1/3 old, the last couple days feed 3/4 new with 1/4 old. Finally, you can feed all new.
All of the kittens adopted from our cattery will come home with 7 days worth of food.
*Kitties flying solo will not come with raw food due to flight restrictions.
We feed our felines a combo of homemade raw food and Hills Science diet cat food. The kittens begin this diet when they start to wean from mom. Kittens will eat approximately 3-4 times per day and around a tablespoon or so each setting. Measure their food at first so you can see how much they are actually eating so you can tailor the serving size to your cat.
I normally feed raw or Hills in the morning and evening and leave out kibble during the day while I’m working. I honestly prefer the raw diet because it helps with gi tract, teeth, coat (skin), etc AND their poop isn’t toxic smelling like when feeding commercial cat food because there aren’t as many additives.
The links below take you to the recipe I use to make our cat’s chicken meals as well as the company I use to order other pre-ground prey from. My meat grinder can only handle chicken bones and other soft bones so I order other pre-ground meat from this company to change up the proteins. I’ve researched companies extensively and found that BJ’s Raw has the best prices for great quality meat. Plus you can buy whole rabbits and organs to make your own mix or you can buy it pre-ground with the correct ratios of meat, bone and organs. Below is a pic of the 10 pound Ground Turkey containers.
