ernie & emmy
New to worrying about cats and their eating habits....have always easily fed cheap dry food...left out to eat at will. The cats are my daughters, and now that they are overweight she wants to change their eating habits and bring weight down.
Have started canned and the pouch variety, no problems with cats eating it. Will use up existing dry, and due to camping in the summer they will need to continue to eat dry while we are gone a couple days at a time.
In no way shape or form will I be trying to feed the cats raw, sorry, not in my lifestyle for the cats. BUT, I would be interested in learning if there are small raw snacks that can be given to them on occasion, kind of like the meaty bones I give to dogs for chewing needs. Ernie is 20lbs, Emmy is 16...I'm sure with the new feeding shedule twice daily they will lose the weight needed. Can we give them say, a chicken wing, pork neck bone (about 3 inches in length) or maybe half of breast on occasion?
