If anyone is wondering why my picture is of a dog, it is because I post on the Dogster raw forum all the time and have just decided to give my cat a go with raw.
Anyway, she is 11 years old and has a tumor on her kidney. Other than some weight loss, all of her tests have come back in the normal range and it hasn't officially been diagnosed as cancerous, though I am fairly certain that it most likely is. She really slowed down on her dry food, so I began feeding her canned since I was told that at this point, it's most important than ever that she is eating. At first, she was allllll about it. Now, I think she is bored with what I am giving her. She hasn't lost her appetite for other food, such as boiled chicken or even the canned dog food I have to use on one of my dog's kibble for the time being. She will eat Special Kitty with no problem!
Two of my three dogs are fed raw and it's the best! The other dog is a rescue and I am trying to put weight on him so he's eating kibble. I would like to begin feeding my cat ground whole raw. I know it isn't beneficial for the teeth with ground, but that's not my concern at this point.
Does anyone have any experience with starting feeding a cat raw that shows no signs of health issues from a tumor other than minor weight loss? I am planning to order duck, goose, turkey, rabbit, and chicken. Will this provide her with the necessary nutrients or does another source need to be added?
