We exclusively provide RAW only! RAWR~

Our Cattery's Dietary

Our preferred choice is feeding a raw diet, specifically the B.A.R.F. Diet which stands for Biologically Appropriate Raw Food. (PMR for cats)

Exploring the debate between kibble and raw diets can be a complex and extensive topic.

Here's a shorter version: Our cats and dogs' health has vastly improved. They now have a good shiny coat, shed less, developed strong muscles and a thick body, cleaner teeth, reduced odor, and fewer vet visits!

Common Inquiries Regarding "Raw Feeding"

Aren't you scared of parasites?

No. Just follow the instructions for deworming your pet as usual.

Take into consideration that your pet has the potential to acquire parasites unexpectedly, such as by engaging in activities like licking the floor.

What are raw diet alternatives?

Consider trying a homemade diet for your feline companion. There are numerous online recipes available that allow you to create your very own 'Cat Food Loaf' with ease.

How much should I feed?

The daily feeding amount is determined by considering your pet's age, weight, and activity level. For instance, an adult cat with moderate activity should consume 2.5% of its body weight. Do not be alarmed if your cat does not finish their meal, unless they show signs of illness or lethargy. In such cases, it is advisable to consult a veterinarian immediately.

If your feline companion seems to be experiencing excessive weight gain, it is recommended to measure their food. Provide a daily guideline for feeding, and exercise.

Is it Expensive?

Depending on where you are located, the price will be different.

Raw diet should cost about the same as a prescription 'premium' veterinary diet. Minus the vet visits.

For cost savings, it is recommended to make your own cat food.

To save time, we recommend engaging with the Raw Feeding community on Facebook in your local area to discover reliable vendors.

Based on my perspective, feeding raw can actually save you money in the long run. With fewer vet visits, you'll be able to cut down on expenses and allocate your funds towards other important aspects of your pet's well-being.

My cats at home are already on kibble diet, can my new kitten adjust?

Yes!

If you are comfortable feeding kibble/commercial food, consider supplementing the diet with freeze dried or unseasoned chicken as a topping to increase the protein intake.

*Due to the low moisture content of kibble/commercial food, it is necessary for your cat to drink more water than usual.

Does the meat need to be cooked?

No.
A raw meat diet is designed to be fed just like that -raw. There is no need to cook, just simply thaw, portion and feed. While it's true that some pets may have a preference for cooked food, it's crucial to keep in mind that the cooking process can lead to the loss of vital nutrients. As a result, feeding them a raw food diet is often recommended for optimal nutrition.

Prioritize fresh, raw food over highly processed pet food.

How do I store raw food for my pet?

Raw meat should be stored in the freezer and defrosted in a fridge, on the bottom shelf, thoroughly prior to feeding.

In order to ensure the safety of both you and your cat, it is crucial to observe basic hygiene practices when handling cat food. Treat it with the same care as you would raw meat for human consumption. After feeding your cat, remember to wash your hands thoroughly. Furthermore, it is recommended to promptly clean all surfaces and bowls used during feeding. Lastly, it is advised not to refreeze defrosted food and to store any leftovers in the refrigerator.

Can I mix raw food with dry/kibble food?

No. The digestive processes of carnivores are distinct for raw food and kibble, which can frequently lead to stomach discomfort.

Can raw meat cure my pet’s allergies?

Yes.

Pets often develop reactions to the colourants, preservatives, flavourings and non-meat ingredients (such as starch and gluten).

Pure meat diets exclude all of these unnatural ingredients.
