He's eating raw finally!
Hi there! My Siamese cat Richard is 3 years old. As a kitten I tried to feed him raw as all my dogs eat it. He initially ate a premade pattie mix but after about a week it started making him sick, vomitting etc. After two weeks of trying every type of raw I could think of I finally gave up and started feeding him kibble with his canned food. Over the years I have thrown him different meat/bones an mixtures, all of which he turns his nose up to. Four days ago I was thawing a premade raw mixture on the counter and I found him happily chowing down on it!!! I've been giving it to him as his morning meal and canned as his dinner. Of course I would love it if he would eat it all the time but at this point I will be satisfied with once a day.
The premade is what they call a protein blend. It it sourced locally and is hormone and antibiotic free. It's not sold in stores, I pick it up from a company locally. The protein blend is approximately 35 % beef, bone, muscle meat, tripe and organ, 40% chicken, 20% fish and 5% egg.
I'm looking for suggestions regarding any supplements I should be adding or whether you think this is would be okay to feed him one meal and canned the next.
I know that whole bones (prey model) is best, my dogs get it and sometimes I supplement with this protein blend for a treat. I'm just happy at this point he's eating something not already cooked!
