Cats are carnivores and need meat. Too many of the dry foods that are out there
nowadays, are full of fillers and ingredients that are dangerous to the long term
health of your cat. It is just like with people....if they do not eat right, they may be
okay, but they may not. And if you love your cat, why take a chance on their future?
For those who prefer to buy grocery store meats, there is a company who sells a
powder mix for that. Feline Instincts, in Texas, has a few varieties of powder to fit
your needs. They also sell a powdered liver (beef or chicken) and a large squeeze
bottle of salmon oil (saves pricking oil capsules for each meal). Our cats do well on
this, and love the flavor. Our kittens are raised on this mix and really thrive on it.
You can buy this powder with the liver included, as we do, saving yourself time.
Once a week we recommend feeding ground chicken or turkey necks with nothing
added. It is mostly bone with very little flesh, so it is not for everyday feeding. The
cats enjoy it very much though so a little once in awhile is a good thing. You can buy
necks in the grocery store and cut them into smaller pieces if you like, your cat will
love it! They can make a mess dragging it around the floor though. An occational
chicken wing (raw only) can also be a good treat and although they take awhile to
chew it all up, they have a blast doing this.
