|Hi Tigger. Yes, it is perfectly fine to offer them bits of raw meat while they are on a canned diet. You don't want to feed raw within 12 hours of feeding kibble because of the slow rate of digestion of the dry food, but the digestion rate of canned and raw is very similar.
Just be aware that if you start feeding them a lot of raw that you will have to start balancing the raw part of the diet (80% muscle meat / 10% bone / 5% liver / 5% other secretiing organ). If you are just giving slivers/bites now and then though, you don't have to worry about it.
If you want to read up on the raw diet check out rawfedcats.org, catinfo.org, catnutrition.org and the raw section of ibdkitties.net.
