Thanks for all your input. I will start by transitioning Crush from kibble to wet food and introducing a raw meat tid bit or two when I'm preparing our food.
I had Beena check his teeth, he's only missing 2 front teeth, all the molars seem to be intact.
Questions about bones: What kind of bones are small enough and soft enough for a cat to chew through? I can see my Cocker Spaniel chewing her way through a chicken neck or back, but I can't see Crush doing that. For all that he's a big cat, his jaw is tiny and his teeth look like wee pearls, not bone crushers!
Thanks again. Will keep you updated as I begin transition.
If you're green, you're growing...if you're ripe, you're rotting!
I try to greet the world like my pets do...boundless enthusiasm, intense curiosity and no concept of yesterday and tomorrow.
