|How long can raw food be left out before you take it back? My kittens love the raw food (Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Bites) that I give them, but they tend to eat half and come back for the rest later. They do this with all food, so it's not that they don't like it, but how long can it be left out and then eaten safely? I mean, do wild cats eat their kills in stages or for prolonged times like wolves? If I give it to them and they eat some, is there a time when I can take it and put it in the freezer to give later or is it just bad after that?
Also, my kittens have a hard time eating apart, they've gotten used to eating out of the same bowl. I'd like to regulate how much each eats and keep one very fat kitten from stealing the other's food. However, when they are put in separate rooms, they just meow and refuse to eat. Would some tough love be appropriate here?
