What are your opinions on store bought raw diets. I don't have any confidence that I'd be knowledgeable enough to give them a healthy, balanced, and safe diet. Which brands are best?

Commercial raw foods are safe smile Human feeds Nature's Variety frozen raw food. All of the varieties EXCEPT bison are 100% complete diets for cats.

One drawback to commercial raw foods is that many brands include fruits and veggies that cats don't need in their diet shrug It is only a small part of the food, though.

Mail order raw food brands like Feline's Pride do not contain fruits and veggies, just raw meat, organs like gizzards and liver, maybe a few things like eggs and such and vitamins and minerals.

If you don't want to make your own raw food from a recipie or the frankenprey method or even using a pre-mix, commerical raw pet food is the way to go smile
