Raw feeding cats
Raw feeding is typically associated with animals like dogs and snakes, even though cats are just as carnivorous and derive similar health benefits from a raw food diet. While many of us understand that cats are natural hunters – what cat owner hasn’t had their cat bring a bird or mouse carcass into the house before – few allow this fact to influence their cat’s diet. A natural, raw food diet can be enormously beneficial for a cat and will ensure that they’re healthy and happier than ever before.
Though you may consider your cat a ‘house cat,’ that doesn’t mean that all of their instincts have been suppressed – nearly all cats will benefit from a raw feeding regime, even if takes them a little time to acclimatise.
The benefits of raw feeding catsTransitioning from a processed pet food diet to a traditional and natural raw food diet can take some work at first. However, the benefits are very much worth the effort and your cat will soon be eating raw meats and whole prey with great pleasure. While kittens require no transitioning – they’ll take to raw foods as if they were the most natural things in the world (they are to a cat) – older cats may require a little patience.
When transitioning, it’s important to ensure your cats continue eating on a regular basis. While it may seem easier to get them to switch by depriving them of their processed food, this can have negative effects if your cat goes for longer than 12 hours without a meal.
Raw feeding cats depends on slowly weaning them off their old food and onto the healthier raw foods. In some cases, this will take months and in others, it will happen in hours. Just remember that each cat is different and will work on its own schedule. It’s also a good idea to try different types of raw food, as your cat may prefer chicken liver to chicken stomachs.
