|Good to know, Khina. Just to clarify -- if you're saying cats need to eat at least once every 24 hours, it sounds like a 24-hour "fast" would be ok to try with Bella as a one-time-deal, to see if that helps her start eating the raw food (she'll be hungry and more inclined to eat). Is that right? Again, just wanting to clarify.
We agree about not leaving food out all the time. That can make for fat cats, especially if they are indoors-only. We follow exactly what you prescribe - set feeding times and amounts, and the food is removed if not eaten in a certain period of time. The amounts are very carefully measured, too.
Well, Bella's Pawrent, we wish you good luck! If you simply cannot get Bella to eat raw, you might try EVO, as it touts itself as "minimally cooked", and, just as important, it's grain-free. We give our cats some EVO kibble with their Primal raw food, but we occasionally give them EVO canned, too, as they start to get bored with the same wet food every couple of weeks. BTW we are planning to try raw meaty bones to eventually replace the kibble, but we're not quite there yet.
