One of our cats has decided she does not like what we bought her. We started the raw recently and she was the first to gobble it down. She loved it. She would eat and not throw up, like she did with kibble and canned. Now she won't eat it, she may nibble but she looks as if she is looking for something. Should we try different meats? We are feeding chicken breast some bone in, chicken hearts, gizzards and I tried egg but neither were interested. The girl who was originally hesitant is now chewing bones and eating raw as if she has her whole life. I did try mixing choped up raw with canned food but she just licked the gravy and ate a bit of it.
**the first chicken we had tried was prefrozen. The stuff we got now is fresh and we froze it ourselves

Thank you for the link. I am getting some duck from a friend, and venison soon too. They are still eating some evo wet food as we didn't want to totally change all at once. (we've only started like two weeks or so ago) She had eaten the bone in breast once. We had tried raw out just to see if she'd eat it and she did happily. So my guess is she is bored of the chicken. I'm going to purchase some more variety. Also I saw that mice are good to feed once in a while. With whole critters like that do they need to be fed as is or without the fur on?

Wanted to update :p. We've been doing so much better now! They are eating a bit more variety, the picky eater is no longer picky(she's been mowing)
Seems she was just waiting to see if she'd get her old food again haha. Now she understands this is her food.
She loves liver and beef and has been happily crunching bones too. I found bison and rabbit as well
She eats so slow lol chewing very carefully, our other cat finishes first and attempts to steal. Usually met with a death glare :)
Going to pick up feeders in the morning and I think the place has quail eggs too.

Glad to hear! Our kitties go in and out of pickiness phases and now they are starting to see what is for dinner is for dinner and there are no options.
