When I fed raw (frankenprey) here's how it went. I used an 80/10/5/5 split. 80% muscle meat, 10% bone, 5% secreting organ, and 5% non secreting organ.
Three meals per day and on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday they ate bone and muscle meat and one of those days I would add an egg yolk. Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday they got muscle meat and organs. Sunday was muscle meat with the mid day meal sardines packed in water instead of meat.
I prepared the food once a month. I purchased plastic tubs and wrote a name on each.
I would take 7 gallon freezer bags (x2 one for each cat) and wrote the days of the week on them.
Then I'd use the Ziploc little snack bags (the little short stumpy ones) and wrote the days of the week and which cat got that bag. I'd start with Monday, however many Mondays were in that month and open them up, so I wasn't trying to handle the bag with bloody hands.
I cut up all the meat, organs, and separated the chicken wings. The drummetes of the wings I tossed in a baggie for myself, they were usually too big for them. If they weren't then I'd use them. Pro-tip: cut up the organs last. Liver leaves a big 'old mess on the cutting board and gets all over the other meats. I used my regular Wustoff knives.
The cut up meat went into bowls and I set up an assembly line. Opened baggies, bowls of meat surrounding the scale (wrap it in saran wrap to keep it from getting gross from bloody fingers), then space for the filled opened baggies. Once I measured out all of Monday I washed my hands, closed the baggies, and put them in the larger bag named Monday. That filled large baggie got stood up in the tub. Each day of the week followed the same way until the month was done. Tub in freezer and on to the other cat.
Each night before I warmed the last meal, I would put the next days in a bowl in the fridge to thaw overnight. Each meal I eyeballed it and spooned put 1/3 of the food in the baggie into their dish to warm. I also tried to be mindful not to overload one meal with all organ or all bone.
Hopefully that all makes sense....
