|My kittens are 6.5 months old, so they are fed three times a day, plus I leave out two bowls of 1/4c. of Stella & Chewy's freeze-dried without water for them to snack on during the day as we are occasionally gone for 8-10 hours. Breakfast usually consists of a Primal of NVI raw medallion and the Honest Kitchen mixed with water, cranberry extract, digestive enzymes, and coconut oil. Lunch usually consists of Primal freeze-dried mixed with water or occasionally some Tripett canned tripe. Dinner is a raw medallion mixed with THK again or sometimes two medallions. They also get 100% wild Alaskan salmon oil once a week. I use Zuke's grain free cat treats, Cloud Star grain-free treats, and This & That dehydrated lake smelts as treats as well. I occasionally add a few pieces of raw chicken, raw beef, turkey or chicken heart or moose liver into their meals, but I am not prepared to go 100% home-made raw at the present time. They also have a few bully sticks lying around that they sometimes chew on.
The gals were on a mix of canned and raw until a few weeks ago when we transitioned fully onto raw and dehydrated/freeze-dried raw. Kaylee will eat anything, but I think Amelia misses the canned as she will come and sniff her bowl, walk away, and come back to sniff it several times before starting to eat. Maybe it's that the canned smelled better? Who knows.
Once they are around a year old, I plan to transition to only feeding twice a day plus the S&C's.
