|Hi everyone, I'm happy I found a forum that I can post to about raw food for cats!!! Just recently switched my cats to raw. We're doing the Raw Meaty Bones thing. ::Yay!!::
I'm wondering though, about how much do *you* give your cat(s) per day??
Measurements like "a fist-sized amount" or "2 drumsticks" would be greatly appreciated. Or pictures if you have them! Thank you, thank you!
I've been reading on a bunch of sites about how much to give a day... X% of body weight at this age, X% at this age.... or X grams/kilos/etc... but I don't have a kitchen scale and am kind of confused.
Thanks soooo much for any help!! And sorry if this has already been talked about in a previous post. =)
A little more background:
I have two cats, Zila (4 mo. old) and Zul (~7 yrs) and have switched them over to raw cold turkey (or cold chicken, haha) 3 days ago. They LOOOVE it! They've eaten chicken necks, chicken heads, heart, some other organs, breast and almost all the attached bones I've given them. Probably about a good two handfuls a day, split into two meals for the older cat, and 4 little meals for the younger one. They aren't having any problems with digestion that I can tell. They are both indoor/outdoor cats and catch mice, etc., outside already anyway so maybe they are already used to raw.I will definitely give them more than just chicken as I find good sources of meat. Really looking forward to all the health benefits they will get from this diet!!
