|Hi Quintan and family!
Your menu as you listed it is on the right track, but it needs some tweaking.
I would not serve liver by itself as a meal. To make liver into a meal on it's own, you would have to serve a lot of it, more than would be required it a cat's diet. Eating too much liver causes mushy poop, so you would be dealing with some messy litter boxes. What I do is serve a piece of liver, or whatever organ I'm serving, in with another meal. So you could put a piece or two of chicken liver in with some chicken muscle meat, or gizzards, or with a neck, you get the idea. It is ok to serve heart by itself as that is not a secreting organ and counts as a muscle meat for raw feeding purposes.
I would not serve beef short ribs to a cat. Beef bones are way too big for a cat and they might damage their teeth. More appropriate sized bones are those found in game hens, chickens, and rabbits. Even duck and turkey bones are generally too big for most cats.
If you are planning on feeding Quintan raw be really careful about bones as he is just a tiney kitten. You could maybe try pinky or fuzzy mice with him.
