  1. This is so helpful. I tossed the high end kibble after watching “ The Truth about Pet Cancer.” The transition was a little tough with the “ where is my kibble” stare-down. Fortunately I was also feeding human grade canned food and this has been accepted. We are further progressing towards raw food in small steps. This is my first cat ever and she was a “ barn cat” raised on kibble. ( and probably lots of mice) The pointers about timing of feeding were so spot on BC my kitty did have access to all you can eat kibble.Its been about 2 weeks scince I tossed the kibble. We are at a serving of human grade food when she sits at the feeding station. No worse for the wear. I did nearly “ cave in” to the convenience of kibble but have streamlined the feeding process to make a few days at a time. Larger batches to follow. Thank you for your excellent suggestions. Purrr fect. Timing! Sincerely, Joanne Green and her cat Lily.

  2. My cat would lick his urethral area constantly because of crystals created by the dry food. Ever since I put him on raw he has not done it once. I wish the benefits of raw food were known 10-15 years ago. He has damaged kidneys now and I know it was the dry food that did it.

    Also, I add water to his raw food bowl and he doesn't drink any pure water since he started eating raw. I am told this happens often with dry food and is normal.

  3. You forgot to mention that many cats died after catfood was first created b/c the "nutritional experts" weren't aware of the existence of taurine.

    My kitties get feeder mice; day old chicks; 1-2wk old quail; quial frames; chicken wings, meat, livers, hearts, and gizzards; turkey meat and hearts; rabbit; beef; veal; lamb; pork; ostrich; and the occasional sardines, mackerel, salmon, talapia, or catfish.
