How much do you feed raw meat each day?

Hello Everyone,

Ive decided that now that I should be giving Catty and Kitty more raw meat than I usually do now. How much raw meat do I give cats each day?
I give the occasional bacon rind choped up finely but that's really about it.

Any suggestions??

The following threads should be helpful:
Natural Diet Information Resources

What does your menu look like?
Also, the following websites:
Feline-Nutrition.org

Catinfo.org

Catnutrition.org

Rawfed.com
Best regards!

P.S. Bacon rind is actually not a good thing to be feeding your kitties.

It really helped! What happens if I feed them a little bit of bacon rind?

Hey KittieLover, good to see you're trying to feed them more raw. Bacon rind is not good because raw pork has parasites that would harm your kitty! The best meats to feed raw are poultry, beef, lamb, rabbit and other wild game!

Good luck and have a read at the links given above! Our 3 kitties are on a pre-packaged raw at the moment with Orijen dry but I'll be making my own raw very soon!

Not to mention that bacon is full of nitrates and salt. Not good for little kitties.

Hello Sephie!
I won't feed them bacon rind anymore! I don't want their cholesterol to go up! I will feed them more beef and maybe chicken? I give them abit of chicken aswell.

Thank-you so much for the information! I really appreciate it!

In developed countries, there is no more concern about parasites in pork than there is about parasites in any other type of meat.

We feed raw pork ALL THE TIME. No parasites. Also, freezing the raw pork tends to get rid of the ickies anyhoo, doesn't it?
