|I agree. Try raw. Here's a quick and easy recipe to try in transition from commercial cat food to raw:
Quick Poultry Feast
1 lb Raw chicken or turkey thigh flesh only with the skin
(ground or chunked)
1/2 tsp Powdered or finely ground eggshell (or 850mg calcium supplement) NOT optional
1 Jar (71g) Baby Food Stage 1 or 2 Vegetables WITHOUT onion (carrots, peas or butternut squash)
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Divide into meal portions, using freezer bags or ziplock bags or jars. Freeze what will not be eaten immediately.
As simple as it is, the ingredients in this recipe actually provides a carnivore all the key nutrients it needs. The poultry thighs provide the complete amino acids spectrum, including taurine as well as vitmains including A, D and K and many of the B's. The poultry skin provides the essential fatty acids. The egg shells provide the calcium and trace minerals. Theoretically, you can do without the vegetable baby food - but in my experience, it adds palatability to the food as well as providing needed fiber, starch and phytonutrients.
