Well, I don't know....
I have been feeding my two cats the nature's variety prairie brand for about three months and they are thriving on it.
They didn't like it at first, but they love it now. I never have a problem with them wanting to eat it. They get very excited about it in fact. They never liked canned food this much, not even fancy feast.
I think there may be a period of adjustment. It may take a little time for cats to get used to it, but I believe (from my experience) it has been worth sticking with it .
I feed it to them slightly warmed up but still very rare sometimes, mostly because it has been cold where I live. My Vet said that this is fine to do. It isn't like canned, it is still fresh high quality meat.
I just don't understand why this subject is so controversial. Cats are predators... Weren't they designed to eat raw meat? I mean cats love to hunt and eat their prey. They have been doing this for as long as there have been cats. What should be under question is feeding cats foods that they were never meant to eat.
My cats hunt and eat their prey frequently. I have had cats for the last 50 years that did the same. I can't imagine a cat that has never done any hunting. I mean that is what they do...
isn't it? They love to hunt. All my cats that did lived long happy, healthy lives.
Why is it so weird for cats to eat raw meat now? I just don't understand why raw meat is bad now after 55 million years of mammals eating it?
Well, I guess that is why there are no more cats out in the wild.. They ate raw meat and went extinct?
I see mountain lions where I live all the time and I am pretty sure they are not eating canned food.
Just my humble opinion
