well, im reading a lot on the site about raw feeding, something i had never heard of before i found the site, im english.. so maybe its a cultural thing. i have been trying to find recipies and information, but im just so confused, is there a site anyone knows of where i can find clear directions and info?


i have found a few recipies that look like i can do them, but there are a few details im still confused on, like bone to meat ratio, and how much to feed at one time, and what is suitable for each of our cats, two at 7-ish months and a 5 month old.

we want out kitties to be healthy, and im looing at the foods that are available localy, and they are full of crap, and the ones i have been looking at online are just too expensive to feed 3 kitties :cat: :cat: :cat:


i hope we can make the right choices for our pets, in my eyes we chose to have them, and in taking responsibilty for 3 little lives we have to do the best for them, as we would human children.

thanks

Emma

Welcome! I woul have a look over here http://www.rawfedcats.org/ This should answer many of your questions.

I've tried to switch my three cats, and havent had much luck. If I only had two, or even one, I think I could do it. Its just so hard to get the three to eat the same thing. Plus with the dog..really, it comes down to me be lazy with the cats :o and not trying 110% to switch em over. With a kitten, its simple, but older cats can take a lot of time.
