I am just about ready to vote raw food for President of the World ;} I can't tell you how happy I am that I switched my cat to a fully-raw diet. The long-story-short of her tale is that she was a lifelong kibble cat, much to my shame - I got her when I was 16 so I didn't know any better. In 2010, my German Shepherd was diagnosed with cancer, so I started looking into better foods for both of them. That was when I transitioned my cat to grain-free canned food. In 2012, my cat was diagnosed with kidney failure (CRF/CKD) and was given ~6 months to live. I refused the vets' "prescription diets", did a TON of research, and switched my cat to a raw diet (ground meat/bones/organs).
I saw an almost-immediate improvement in her health, happiness, and energy. She started playing and running around again - maybe not like a kitten, but much more than before ;} Her fur got soft, thick, and silky. And her poops became small and dry, and they don't smell at all. Plus, she got her appetite back - she actually enjoys eating now! And of course, the #1 thing - it's 4 years later and she's still alive.
I really think a raw diet benefits cats SO much, especially ones with health conditions. It's so "easy" for a cat to digest a raw diet, because, well, they EVOLVED to do so! ;}
I feed my cat ground raw meat/bones/organs. If you could find that in your area, Casper should have no problems lapping it up - no need to chew!
