on saturday i got raw chicken to use in a trap to try catch a feral who i found out loved it. though he was to smart for me, he gets into the cage, grabs the chicken in his mouth, gets back out without touching the thing that makes it go of (it goes off really easily, just ask any other of my cats).
anyway, i decided to give the rest of the cats the extra chicken thighs(think thats what it was) and they loved it
they had no problem figuring out just how it works, even ate the bones just fine. so i got more today and they ate all four of the pieces of chicken with no problems. i had to cut it up so they couldn't get in fights over it though, think 20 some cats and only four large pieces of chicken. what i think i would give them each night is about a pound worth.
they have done so great with eating raw, so i think i might replace their wet friskies that they get every night with raw, which is about the same price even though they get a little bit less raw. they still have to get 50% of thier diet in dry food, which i know isn't ideal though i only can feed them once a day so there isn't much i can do but give the dry besides. i guess my main question is if it is okay to just feed them raw chicken and possibly turkey or beef but not give them any organs besides? they still have to get dry (which is a mix of instinct, kirkland, and wellness right now) so would it have enough of the vitamins/minerals that they need?
i wouldn't be able to do more than just the raw meat for a while, my parents are thinking i have completly lost it already. at least they are okay with this if i pay for it. and i can only get a weeks worth at a time because of barely any room to put it in the fridge/freezer.
sorry for the confusing post!
