We have two new 3 month old kittens and have decided to try feeding them raw - breeder had them on dry with some raw. All is going well so far and I wanted to ask some questions to ensure we have everything covered.
We are using the rough 80/10/10 frankenprey percentages, with foods as follows:
Meat - 80% - fed as chunks, not ground
Beef - they love this!
Chicken - went down well
Salmon - went for it the first time, less keen the second time
Venison - TBC *being delivered tomorrow from Nurturing by Nature
Heart (various) - TBC*
Bones - 10%
Chicken neck - TBC*
Chicken wings - TBC*
Sprat - TBC*
Partridge - TBC*
Organs - 5% Liver/5% Other
Lambs Liver - went down well
Kidney - need to get some
Gizzards - need to get some
Occasional egg - TBC
Occasional fish oil if they don't take to eating oily fish
Cat grass (a plant, not dried) - may get this or something similar for them to nibble on
The list isn't exhaustive, just what I have planned for now, so other game and meat/organs from animals listed will also be fed over time.
- Does this look varied enough?
- Given there is a decent amount of dark meat here and I'm not grinding anything, my research suggests that this should provide enough taurine, is this the case?
- I've seen some posts that mention other supplements, is this really necessary?
Apologies for the long post. Any advice much appreciated.
