Hi I have been considering feeding the raw diet to my cat but he only likes pate I can almost never get him on eating meat bits, and he likes dry food. I figured if I did ever get him on raw diet I would have to work with that.

I was hoping for some book recommendation and to articles and/or books. I own a kindle so any kindle books are good too.

Not sure about books but here are good web sites to learn more about raw food diets way to go


There's nothing wrong with canned food smile Can you stop feeding dry food and only feed your cat canned food? That's one step you can take right now in trying to convert your cat into a raw food eater way to go Dry food and raw food don't go well together in a cat's tummy because of the different digestive rate. Dry food takes a long time to be digested so if there's raw food in the tummy as well, things can "back up" and cause an upset tummy.

Some people can only manage a part canned food and part raw food diet and that's ok way to go And by part raw food I mean that the raw food is completely balanced food on it's own, not just a couple pieces of meat added to the canned food.

Human found that using freeze dried raw food helped to get Emma to make the transition from canned food to (commercial) raw pet food. Maybe that's something you can try smile

Keep in mind that ground raw is very similar to pate. You don't have to add chunks of meat if she doesn't like them, or you can work up to bigger pieces if she does well with the ground.
