My bulk order has arrived and I must say im impressed .. I just need to know what else to add. Is it necessary to add anything else??? variety is expensive but what I do is once a week chop some liver and kidneys for them . My freezer is now also completly full , so there isnt room for variety.

What it seems they do is do simply remove the feathers from laid out cornish hens and then chop the entire chicken .... brains, liver , the tripes the entire lot.... now its roughly chopped so the cats have to have a good chew ... im just wondering tho.. would the amount of organ meat in one chicken be enough ????

Tyson doesnt tolerate beef either :roll: he loves kidneys but it gives him the runs ... so with him its a bit of a problem. I sincerly hope he is going to grow out of all these "tummy"issues.

The other thing there is quite a bit of bone , but would it be too much ??? im not sure it looks like more meat but if it causes constipation what veggies could I add.... cooked pumpkin /carrots etc ???? my cats all eat veggies and how much veg .

the amount of bone doesnt seem to be as much as I thought . it would seem the packs are 90% meat .

I do know the cats love this mixture more than the other I had which was pure mince.. and very fine mince at that.

If it has bone, muscle meat, liver and other secreting organs then you needn't add anything--maybe some fish oil if you aren't feeding fish.

No veggies!! If they get constipated add some more liver.

Variety is key, just because one food source isn't likely to have all the nutrients--but I would think that if chicken is all you can offer its better than commercial pet foods.

I feed beef, pork, venison, turkey and chicken currently.

If Tyson can't handle a lot of liver and kidney at one meal, then try what I do - give a very small piece of liver and kidney (or other secreting organ) daily. That way you won't overwhelm his sensitive stomach with too much rich organ meat all at once.

If you have constipation problems at any time with any of the cats, just make sure you give that cat more muscle meat and organ and less bone until the stool has softened sufficiently. You can also feed a little canned or cooked pure pumpkin to help soften stool.
