When I was first thinking about trying raw food with my cats I looked at a few of these kinds of raw food premixes. There are other kinds out there as well, like TCfeline or Better in the Raw. I was originally going to buy my own supplements using the recipe on catinfo.org, before I came across the concept of prey model. It all seemed very overwhelming to me at first but it really isn't that complicated to make your own pet food.
i just spent that last 2 hours today making 28 pounds of raw and thats with clean up time. most of that 2 hours was prepping the chicken for the grinder.
14lbs of chicken
7lbs of turkey
7lbs of rabbit
the rabbit and turkey i got off haretoday and all i had to do with it was put it in a big bowl, get the wet mix (water + supplements) and add it to the bowl and mix it all together. then i put them in containers and put it in the freezer.
i think that's about as easy as making the wild mix and prob cheaper since the supplements i bought will last many many batches.
i was pretty much forced to make it today since i ran out of raw and they wouldn't eat the back up canned food. once they got a taste of that raw they dont want anything else.
oh btw your bengal looks super cute! i just got two bengal kittens.
I once used the premix + ground meat from Whole Foods Market. Although my cats loved the food, it was an expensive option so I quickly turned to home-made version.
Like j1n, I also use recipe from catinfo.org. It takes about 2-3 hours to make ~12lb food and then clean-up. It's a manageable task but my hubby sometimes complains about me spending too much time on cat food.
