Progress So Far with Raw Feeding
Well, now that I successfully have all 9 cats on canned/wet Felidae cat food (yay!), I've been researching the benefits of feeding raw. I believe it is something I can do, especially if I can get some free meat from Craigslist now and then--as with 9 cats to feed (and my husband still unemployed), that would be a HUGE help!
So far, most (not all 9 yet) of my cats have eaten and enjoyed chunks of boneless chicken thigh, chunks of boneless stew meat, and ground beef.
What I've done to entice them is to thaw it (I have it in a ziploc bag and float it in hot water for a few minutes to bring it to room temp), then give a little squirt/pump of the salmon oil, and a small sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. I mix it all up and serve them individual pieces.
Most of them have really enjoyed this and want more!
Is this a good start? I realize there are no bone and organs given yet, but I'm just starting.
They still receive canned/wet food as their first meal of the day, as I've been trying the raw as their evening dinner meal.
Any advice/help is appreciated!
