Please Help!! Three kittens were abandoned yesterday and there is one who I kept and his new name is Lucky(actually I am not sure yet). He hasn’t been weened from his mother but the mean people had left him and his siblings at my garage. They didn’t even give them the time necessary with their mother. He is currently drinking cat milk from the store. I want to know what to feed him. I was hoping to transition my other cat to raw food who is going to be 1 years old 31 Mar also.
I was looking over some of these cat recipes and I am at loss because I haven’t bought meat before, and my family doesn’t eat meat so how do I know if it’s good meat or not. Also what is good meat to feed cat’s. Pork and Beef doesn’t seem like something a cat would naturally eat if in the wild, because the animal is quite large. Also do you add seasoning, and where am I suppose to find taurine? I thought it was banned in the U.S. I only see it on energy drink labels.
I would give the cats that I grew up with when I was young, tuna juice. The tuna was in the can with water. Is it ok to feed the cat tuna from the can. Is tuna, salmon and other fish in the can processed? Do you actually grind the bone(chicken, fish etc) for the cat, and with what? Also do they actually sell rabbits in the store? Why would anyone eat rabbits that is so sad. I see people also mention adding olive oil, flax oil or omega 3 to the cats diet. If we give them fish does he need the supplements? I don’t see any recipes with fruits, although I saw one with carrots, is fruit bad for cats and what vegetables are we not suppose to feed cats?
Please don’t laugh at me, I am a complete ditz with raw food for cat so much advice and help is needed. I assume organic is best but how do we reduce salmonella poisoning for cats?
