OK thanks. I'll weigh them soon and post their weights.
If you're feeding bone with every meal, or even a lot of bone every day, you're cats are likely to get constipated, if they aren't already.
I feed them bones every 3rd day or so. They each ate a chicken thigh with bone today. they aren't constipated. Too much raw egg at one time gives Cubby diarrhea within a couple hours or so.
It's generally known that taurine deficiency will kill. So will thiamine and potassium deficiencies. Do you know which foods contain these essential nutrients?
They get chicken thigh often, turkey thigh, turkey heart, other chicken, chicken liver [cooked] whole Cornish Hen with bones, Pork, wild salmon, and raw free range eggs.
All raw meats [and most any unprocessed whole food] contains potassium, and probably egg does too, with sodium. Thiamine I'm quite sure is in meats and organs, and probably eggs to some degree. I have a book that tells nutrient levels of most whole foods.
If you have no idea how much of what you're feeding, how do you know your cats are ok?
I have an idea, but I haven't used a scale yet. They seem as healthy as they've ever been. Did you see my "A Picture of Health" photo of Cubby in the Meet My Kitty section? They both have a lot of appetite, shiny coats, good looking pink gums, and white teeth. I sure seem to be doing quite a good guess at their diets. I'm very fussy about my own diet, and I don't forget to rotate my cats' foods. I have doubts that I could afford to feed whole prey. I better try to work it out with the foods I already have and feed them.
