Cost of Raw for cats

March 13th, 2010, 04:55 PM
I just finished making 26 lbs of raw for the cats. For those who are wondering the cost of raw versus the cost of quality canned here are the numbers:

It cost me $35 to make it. I bought soup/stew whole chickens for $1/lb, skinless chicken breasts (whole chickens were not meaty enough) for $1.97, eye of round for $1.97/lb and chicken livers and gizzards.

26 lbs is about 75 cans of cat food (5.5 oz). It costs me about $2.70 with tax for a can of NV Instinct, that would be about $200 worth of cat food :eek:, so I saved about $165.. Average cost per can-50 cents. :thumbs up

This is enough raw for one month, feeding 3 cats half raw half canned and one cat all raw. :eek::eek::eek:

It takes just over an hour to make the food.
