|BK is right. The only way to really add supplements, by and large, is to add them to ground food. So cats who won't eat bones or organs, for example, may need ground food so that they get all the components mixed together where they can't pick them out. I agree - cats can, at least initially, be more difficult to feed raw to than dogs, primarily because dogs are usually not too finicky, whereas cats seem to take being finicky to an art form.
If you still can return the grinder, that's great, but there is no reason why, if you've already used it, that you can't spend a day or two grinding up some whole carcass chicken, rabbit, etc. and store it in the freezer for future use. Since you only need 10% bone overall, that means that you can still offer them whole chunks of meaty meat - hearts, gizzards, chunks of beef or chicken, etc. You probably only need to feed something with bone maybe three days a week, depending upon how bone-heavy the grinds are, so that leaves the rest of the week that you can feed chunks for teeth-cleaning benefits.
