I am desperately trying to get my older cat on raw diet, and my new kitten too.

The older cat is very fussy, and her billion reasons of refusing food have made me give up in the first place, but I am determined to start all over again.

I have read that fish in large quantities is harmful and even toxic. But what about mixing some sprats in the food batch?

I have some pro sprats arguments:

* They're tiny and reach maturity fast so they do not get contaminated too much with toxic metals
* not predators
* I can just chop them and feed them with bones, head and all, which would cover the calcium issue.
* it's a bit healthier I hope than sprinkling canned tuna (a trick that's supposed to encourage the cat to eat whatever)
* cats love them and have not figured out yet how to pick them out from there, so a meal with sprats is usually a successful one.

How often could I feed them? In what proportion? For the moment, for an equivalent of let's say 2.5 kg of raw food, I add 3-4 chopped sprats.
