So, as some of you may know, we were adopted by a new cat the day aftter hurricane Irene blew through our area. He's another male (makes 4 of them) who was emaciated, infested with fleas, had/has large areas of missing hair, etc.
He's coming along really well on a partly raw, partly grain free canned diet. Both my DH and I can tell that he is filling in because his hip bones are not so prominent and his coat is starting to feel softer.
Typical, however, to the situation of adding a new cat to the household, every cat is at least somewhat ill at ease. This is translating into some unbalanced diets for the boys as they don't always eat, or they'll pick out a few pieces, etc. We're especially getting bad with the bone meals as no one seems to want to be bothered chewing apart bones, except for small ribs, and there are just some many ribs in a rabbit or game hen!
The guys all get feed canned in the a.m. and then they get a raw meal around 3:30 and another around 9:00 p.m. Do you think that it is ok just to muddle along this way for a while, or do you guys think that I should start worrying about calcium in their diet? I do have some h-t ground raw/bones/organs, but, of course, no one seems to want to eat it; too bad it would be the perfect solution.
