|I started the journey to frankenprey because my cat wasn't enthusiastic about the frozen prepared meals we started with.
I began adding chicken hearts, then chicken gizzards to get her used to chewing and to build up jaw strenth.
I got as far as giving her a couple of bone-in quail legs. The first one she crunched up no problem, and the second she moved aside then finished the rest of her dinner.
However, now we've gotten to a point where she mostly finishes up her ground dinner, so I no longer have the need to move to frankenprey.
So, at this point, I think I'm going to stick with the pre-ground frozen supplemented with chicken gizzards to give her something to chew on.
This has the advantage in that it's easy enough for my roommate to understand (either it's warm up what's in the ziplock bag, or at worst it's defrost two hockey pucks of ground meat and two chunks of frozen gizzard).
Thanks for all your help in understanding the frankenprey model and helping me come up with a transition plan, even though I've decided I no longer need the frankenprey.
