Cats FAQ's - what you should know about raw feeding

We use only the best meat and fresh produce fit for human consumption in our products and have carefully sourced suppliers that do not use growth hormones or antibiotics. Good quality, meaty bone cuts are mixed with organ & muscle meat, fresh vegetables & fruit.
We do not add any fillers, grains or preservatives to any of our meals, nor are any preservatives or other substances added.

As an adult, a cat’s daily intake should be between 160g to 200g per day. Cats will not overeat on RAW food, as opposed commercial food.

The goal is to maintain the correct body weight for the breed and type of cat, so if your pet looses or gains weight, adjust the feeding quantity accordingly. Feeding once or twice a day is both acceptable and more down to personal preference. If twice a day, the % indicated above needs to be halved per meal. Kittens will normally be fed 3 meals a day until they are 9 months old. 

This article by a  vet in the US provides a good overview on raw feeding for cats. 

Yes, despite some beliefs to the contrary, feeding them Raw and Kibble at the same time is possible and often the case when transitioning from Kibble to Raw. It is however not recommended to mix Raw and Kibble together. 
The point of feeding Raw is to provide your cat with a healthier diet and get it off the Kibble. If you want to continue feeding some Kibble, use them as treats instead of food. 

Yes, some of the Complementary Meals are BARF (Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods), specifically the whole minced rabbit and chicken, Phoephe’s Pheast, Remmi’s Grub and Gourmet Gobble. Naturally the day-old chicks are also a complete meal.
The ratio of these ingredients is typically:

    •  80% muscle meat
    • 10% bones (minced)
    • 5% liver
    • 5% other organs

The other products consist of one or more ingredients and should be fed in addition to the meals, to ensure balanced feeding of your cat.

 

If your cat is new to pilchards then cut them up small and gradually feed bigger and bigger pieces until they eat the fish whole

Feeding your cat too much calcium rich food (bones or ground calcium in the meals) will result in hard hard and slightly white stool. If not addressed, this can lead to constipation which if severe, may need veterinary attention.

The remedy is to firstly change the meals to boneless meat and organs only (this will act as a mild laxative) until the stool has normalised and then continue feeding meals that contain less calcium than before. If your dog is constipated, administering Slippery Elm Bark Powder will also help by soothing the digestive system and lubricating the colon walls.
