|Hiya, I've been feeding my cat a premade, ground, raw diet (Furry Foodie by Ayreshire Farms) supplemented with chicken gizzards (because everyone says gizzards are like cat dental floss).
Recently, she's regurgitated her meals a couple of times. I don't know if I got a bad batch of gizzards, or if she was swallowing pieces of gizzard that were too big for her to get all the way down.
I do recall reading that cats learning to take frankenprey may have a period of adjustment while they learn how much to chew their food before swallowing, and there may be some regurgitation until they get it figured out.
I've put her back on just the premade food for a bit, but plan to re-introduce the gizzards, for the dental floss reason listed above.
So my question is how big or small should I cut up the gizzards? Should I cut them into "strips" of whatever length the gizzard is, or "chunks?"
I want her to get the benefit of chewing the gizzards while avoiding having her regurgitate raw meat on the carpet.
