Also, the 2007 Menu dog food tragedy that led to the deaths and critically compromised health of many cats and dogs left me with an excellent deeper desire to have as much handle as feasible over what goes into my cats’ food bowls. I don’t ever are looking to move through what those people went through once they lost their liked pets due to human greed and deception. I remember feeling a superb sense of relief knowing that my cats were eating a diet that I had in my opinion sourced and ready for them – and that feeling continues. I don’t see myself ever going back to feeding advertisement cat food after having fed a 100% selfmade diet since 2003.
Your cat may make it easy for you and show enthusiasm for the hot food quickly…. but many most?won’t. It took one of my cats Toby many months before he would start eating this diet with any consistency and when he ultimately did start eating it, I noticed that he was picking out the pieces that got a bit cooked when I was warming the food. Toby still is not extraordinarily fond of strictly raw meat so he gets his semi cooked. See below for an image of how he likes his homemade diet half cooked and half raw. I often cook it even more than is shown in the image below.
Interestingly, Toby is one of my cats that does not like canned food. Taking a logical examine the calcium to phosphorus ratio bone to meat ratio, it’d seem that the easiest way to make sure having a formal ratio is to use a complete carcass of something animal you are choosing as a food source. However, after witnessing constipation in lots of raw fed cats, in addition to life threatening urethral obstructions see Anne’s Sidney Beans’ story here and Opie’s story here, and watching lions strip the beef from the bones – leaving many of the bones behind – I am not at ease feeding as much bone as that present in whole chickens, turkeys, or rabbits.
