Hi beccaj99! That's awesome that you're trying to feed your kitty healthy food.

Please help me!
Try a different protein source, like chicken, turkey or rabbit. I had a cat that couldn't tolerate beef for some reason. Would projectile vomit if he ate any. You might also want to lightly cook the outside of it at first, then gradually cook it less and less to acclimatize him to the different enzymes in raw meat. Adding a pinch of probiotics from a health food store could also be useful during the transition since his intestinal flora may need a little assistance.

Good luck!
