Raw Cat Food

I learned about this raw cat food diet when I got my daughter Ariel her Tonkinese kitten. As long as we have had little Bynx he has eaten this diet. Even our older cat has been eating this diet for a couple years and seems to like it. I will be honest and say that it took a little time to get our older cat adjusted but it was well worth it. All I can really say is that the results are in the litter box.

Cat Food

Cat Food

16 oz. (1 pound) Raw Coarse Ground/Minced/Sliced Meat/Poultry
4 oz. (1/4 pound) Organ meat (ie. liver, Kidney, Heart, Gizzards, etc.) Raw Whole Chicken Necks stripped of excess fat or Lamb Riblets
(NEVER cooked! Cooked bones splinter!)
– We prefer naturally-raised meats when possible
2 level tablespoons VitaMineral+ Feline Supplement
1 – 2 tablespoons Essential Fatty Acid (EFA) Oil (Refrigerate after opening)
A dash of
Kyolic Aged Liquid Garlic(Refrigerate after opening)
1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon Feline Enzyme Supplement mixed into food at serving time
Minimum 500 mg. Taurine
Optional Ingredients:
2 – 4 oz. (per lb. of ground meat)
OR
1 tablespoon Food-processed raw or pureed vegetables (zucchini, yam/sweet potato, yellow squash). Veggies may be included in recipe for extra fiber in the diet.

Ground Salba Seed


Treat meat with 6-8 oz purified water combined with 4 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract. Pour solution over and blend into meat – do not drain off. Use only enough solution to obtain consistency of rich chili. Chicken necks can be marinated in the solution in the refrigerator, separately.

Cut organ meats into bite-size chunks. If not using ground, chunks should be appropriately sized for kittens (and cats) with dental problems and larger chunks may be fed to healthy adults.

Mix all ingredients together.

After removing excess fat from chicken necks, cut into pieces the length of your thumb. Feed raw bones for dessert (bones are eaten last in the wild). They need to have eaten some of the basic recipe first. Think of them as Nature’s toothbrush!

The serving size for an adult cat is approximately 2 heaping tablespoons per meal, usually twice a day. Kittens are introduced to this diet at the age of 5 weeks and can start with one half to a full teaspoon 4-6 times a day while they are still nursing. Introduce chicken necks to kittens at 8 weeks of age with watchful supervision.

At first, leave food down for approximately 1 hour morning and night. Kittens, pregnant queens and lactating females eat 3-4 times daily or on demand.

Cats and kittens like their food very fresh. Therefore, keep food in the refrigerator up to 3 days. We recommend storing the food in a glass bowl with a tightly fitting lid (Pyrex® makes nice ones), as glass conducts cold better than plastic, and plastic off gases organo chlorine and affects flavor.

Many people make up large quantities and freeze in serving portions. It is ok to freeze in plastic. Do not refreeze more than twice and try to refreeze within no more than 24 hours after you’ve made up the food. You may add supplements when freezing. Enzyme Supplement to be added only at serving time.

Always defrost in refrigerator. Never microwave anything! Safe handling of raw meat is imperative. Wash hands, dishes, and utensils in hot soapy water. Clean surfaces with environmentally safe cleaning products, such as 30 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract diluted in 32 ounces of water.
