Meat grinder

I am thinking about switching to raw for my three cats. Is a meat grinder required? How do I look up recipes without a meat grinder?

Also, is Dr. Pierson's recipe for raw cat food okay for a cat with a history of urinary blockages? He had the PU surgery, but I want to make sure he'll never get the crystals again.

Well you dont need a recipe or a meat grinder for the frankenprey model. You just feed 80% meat, 10% edible bone, 5% liver and 5% other organ balanced over a week or so. You need a variety of meats and organs tho, and the more variety the better. Raw feeding isn't nearly as complicated as people make it out to be sometimes.

I just read her whole page. Fantastic reading and if you want to feed that way, I dont see a problem with it. I don't think I would, and my cat would miss chowing down on bones, but it's a great recipe for someone willing to do the work. But if you are feeding her way, you do need a grinder.
