Raw Feeding Cats & Kittens

Begin your raw feeding journey by following our step-by-step guide!

We've tried to provide everything you need to get started.......except the pet ;)
Raw feeding is a lifestyle choice for both you and your cat or kitten. The journey is smooth for many but can be a little bumpy for some. Don't give up, the benefits are more than worth it....!

Step 1

 

How much of this and how much of that for MY cat/kitten?

Use our easy to use raw feeding calculator to find correct daily portions and ratios of raw to feed your cat/kitten, according to their age and weight.

Our calculator will also give an estimate of raw feeding costs. The cost estimator is a guide – you can successfully raw feed for less than the estimate and also spend a lot more - if you wish!

(*Cost estimator is based on low cost range of minced products for DIY raw feeding available at Raw Pet Supplies).

Step 2

Using the results from our calculator, start with only one or two proteins that are easy to digest. Leave introducing the 10% secreting organ until weeks three to four.

For cats, we recommend you choose from ONE or TWO of the following and start by mixing a little of the raw with their existing food. If all goes well, start reducing the amount of previous diet and increase the amount of raw into each meal:

  • Minced Rabbit

  • Boneless Chicken (minced or chunks)

  • Minced Chicken (max 10% bone)

  • Boneless Turkey

  • Minced Turkey (max 10% bone)

 

After the first week, if you are happy things are going smoothly, and stools are solid but not dry or crumbly, introduce a new protein every few days or so. Don't rush your cat/kitten and always mix something new with something already fed successfully. Cats also need taurine - this can be found in heart and red meats. Be sure to include these options in their diet regularly to avoid missing vital nutrients. Don't forget the 10% secreting organ from Week 3! Introduce the organ slowly - start with as little as 2% of overall diet and build up to the full 10% over a period of at least 1-2 weeks. For more detailed information and advice about raw feeding cats, we recommend CatCentric or Facebook Group Cats Completely Raw And Proud (Cat CRAP).
