Raw as a treat....

I'm not comfortable doing all raw, but considering giving it as a treat here and there. I'm nervous feeding it raw though. So say I'm making a roast for supper, before I season it or do anything with it, I just cut off a small piece and feed it to the kittens? Same with say chicken breasts? What else can I give? Say I buy a whole chicken or turkey, can you feed the neck or whatever is in that bag I throw out normally? (not all at once of course, but a piece of it?) Can I store the rest in the fridge for the next day as a treat? Any other suggestions for feeding raw just a treat? I'm more used to feeding cooked meat and am nervous about doing it raw? (Not that I've ever fed much besides just cat food) So it won't cause problems? What if I were to cook it, but not season it?

On a side note, the rest of their diet is canned 3 times per day and about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of kibble that last them 1-2 days before I refill. Peanut is also getting about 2-3 oz of KMR each day as well.

It is not a good idea to feed raw and kibble simultaneously. One of the reasons cats don't get sick from eating raw food is because they naturally digest it so quickly. Dry food takes a long time for cats to digest, and so it creates a back-up within their digestive tract and therefore they are more likely to get sick from the raw food. A good idea would be to cut out the kibble and feed raw as a snack instead :)
