Preparing for "Lunatic"
As mentioned in another posting, we have put a deposit down on a purebred Bengal with show/breeding rights from a well respected breeder. Our little girl will be coming home in early June. I haven't had the opportunity to talk to the breeder yet (husband did all the work...technically "his" cat and he likes the name Luna). But he is agreeable to a raw diet. I am assuming the breeder isn't feeding the kittens raw when they send home a bag of Royal Canin dry food (ugh).
When we get her, I am assuming we will need to transition her to raw from the wet/dry food she will be used to from the breeder. I know kittens have huge appetites and am guessing she will be extremely active (hence my appendage to her name...LunaTIC). How should we transition her to raw? Right away? Slowly? Would it be okay to leave dry (ugh) kibble out for her during the parts of the day when we are both at work? (That isn't often, but there are a handful of days each month when we both work the same shift and she would be home alone for several hours). Do we start with canned food and kibble..then slowly transition her? I don't want a "kibble monster".
We are looking for a second kitten for company. And I am really hoping her name isn't permanently Lunatic!
