Actually, brain is a secreting organ. So are kidney, spleen, testicles, pancreas, and supposedly eyes (eww).

Oreo, you might want to read through this:

Thanks smile


So, with my dog, when he started raw, my research said to introduce the meats slowly and feed one type of meat for about a week before introducing another type.

Same deal here? If I feed say chicken, and Oreo likes it, do I feed it for a few days before introducing something else?

It can't hurt for a couple of days, but I wouldn't wait too long before trying to introduce another protein source. At least some variety over time is important as different meats have different nutrient profiles and you wouldn't want your cat to get stuck on only loving chicken, or beef, or whatever. This would be a lot more important to stick to with an allergy cat, or a cat with known digestive issues.

Tried feeding some ground beef this evening. She seemed to like it pretty well.

Fed some turkey tonight. smile

At first she didn't seem to get it and I had to cut the meat into tiny little pieces. But then she started to prefer the larger chunks.

Here's a couple pictures:
