How about small pieces of raw chicken or liver or gizzards? You freeze the pieces and take out to thaw as needed for treats smile If you buy chicken breast or other whole cuts of meat for your own meals, buy a little more or cut a piece off to use as cat treats.

You could also poach raw meat in plain water and use that plus the cooking liquid as treats. Cut the cooked meat into bite sized pieces and freeze in an ice cube tray along with some of the cooking liquid.

I didn't mean for my previous post to be mostly bold shockred face Must be the fleas again confused

I've heard that lots of cat don't like The Honest Kitchen shrug It seems pretty texture-less once rehydrated shrug There's too many veggies and stuff in it, too.

Many people add fish or salmon oil to their homemade raw food to add in omega 3. The salmon oil you have should be fine. We use the fish oil brand recommended on C atinfo.org We squeeze out two capsules for 2 lbs of raw meat grind. We may try salmon oil later.

Keep in mind that the Better In The Raw pre-mix is for boneless meats. The pre-mix has calcium in it so you can't use bone-in meat. Too much calcium in the diet can lead to constipation. If you use Beter In The Raw, giving a chicken neck a few times a week would be ok I think thinking A small piece of organ every day would also be ok.

You can feed venison smile

I don't think there's an organ that a cat can't eat thinking BK would probably know more. Liver and gizzards are the most commonly fed.

How about grinding boneless cuts of meat at home with the Kitchen Aid and then adding in the necessary supplements? Here's one: http://www.catnutrition.org/recipes.html

Additional resources for raw diets: http://www.thecatsite.com/t/264154/raw-feeding-resources

We use a pre-mix with chubs of raw meat from the pet store instead of individual supplements. For boneless organless meats, we use Better In The Raw. TC Feline is another pre-mix that can be used. When we use chubs that have bone and organ, we use Alnutrin for meat and bone.

I agree with BK - EVO 95% canned foods are complete diets way to go

Charles, any canned food can be fed to a kitten smile Most are formulated for all life stages anyways. The "best" one to feed is the one your cats like to eat way to go Try different brands to see what the cats like. A grain-free brand would be best. A canned food only diet is best for cats, IMO smile

Here's the company's response to our email:

Yes appropriate for cats as well. The bones are fine enough…just need to let me know in the comments section fine grind.

No other ingredients. If it’s chicken legs with liver and hearts….that’s whats in it.

livers and hearts for poultry

livers kidneys for beef, pork etc

Meats are from mountaire farms, mapleleaf farms, Turkey valley, etc. Restaurant human grade and quality…and in date. Nothing is ever expired or close to expiration either. We buy our products fresh to make them to order.

Our beef is from NY and VT dairy cattle. We have agreements with 41 farms to pick up their retired dairy cattle…whether they have 1 or 10, we pick them up. This summer when the market prices soared, I didn’t have beef because our farmers found it more profitable to take it to market…and I couldn’t blame them. The prices were insane. So we had beef but it was mixed with beef heart as well. If you have any further questions, please feel free to call me at [phone number].

Our tripe is from local farmers who bring their cows to auction for their own consumption or for farmers markets…so the animals they come from are top quality.


Seems pretty good thinkingsmile We'll give it a try later. We just restocked with Bravo, HT, and Blue Ridge chubs over the weekend and it'll be awhile until we have space in the freezer again.

BK wave There's a thing at the bottom of the web site that says all items are made to order. I imagine a fine ground could be made for smaller dogs :-K We can inquire and about veggies.

Here's a list of other similar raw food co-ops: http://www.dogaware.com/diet/rawgroups.html
