I recently discovered that the jar, full of tempations treats, got knocked over and devoured They cats knew the jar, it was on the coffee table...guess they were hungry and decided to help themselves Now they have no treats and won't be getting any for a loooooooong while But they do enjoy their raw food and seem to consider that a treat in itself

Thumbs down Raw is best

Hi Twin Tails,
Actually, raw food is the best food for pets; it's what their digestive systems were designed for. Raw food has vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, etc. that mostly get destroyed when it's processed, cooked, and frozen. That translates into less then healthy pets. This is why pet food manufacturers add these compounds, or at least some of them, to the pet food we buy. Problem there is it's the cheapest forms they can get and never everything that pets need for good nutrition. Raw veggies,meat and fish does provide these essential nutrients. The pet food manufacturers are like our health care system; if it's not profitable it's not treatable or doable.
Even the top end pet foods fall into this category, as they must, by law, process their products according to FDA guidelines, which go so far to protect us and our pets food supply that it actually now harms us.
The massive increases in diseases involving body dysfunction are the proof that what we now call food is actually toxic to our and our pets bodies.
Ah, progress!

Yeah, my cats see raw as a treat, and will eat it over canned any day. They are on 75% raw and 25% canned. All cats are much more calm and don't stink nearly as much, lol. But anyways, those treats are no longer in our home, and I think for a treat I will give them something they rarely get (a bit of salmon or something).
