Most cats prefer to eat their food at room temperature. Simply take the food from the freezer the night before and place it in your fridge in a container to thaw overnight. Place the thawed food in your cats dish and serve. As with any raw meat product, surfaces, food and water bowls, and meat containers must be washed with warm soapy water, after use.
When determining how much to feed your cat, you must consider age, health, activity level, and weight. Cat owners should monitor their pets dietary intake and adjust as necessary. Place both hands on the side of your cats ribs - when cas are at their proper weight you should be able to feel their ribs. A slow conversion is recommended for cats whose immune system has been compromised or for cats experiencing other health issues. For those cats with immune or health issues, IrRAWsistible recommends consulting a holistic veterinarian or other veterinarian experienced in raw feeding.

New to Raw
Cats are fussy eaters and more difficult to transition to raw than dogs. While many cats do convert easily, some cat owners have to be patient and persistent during the conversion process. Here are some helpful hints to get you started: Gradually add small amounts of raw food on top of the kibble. Over the course of 2 - 4 weeks eventually convert fully to raw. If after 2 - 4 weeks this does not work, then begin to convert kibble eaters to a better quality canned food. Mix the canned food into the kibble over time until they are eating all canned. Introduce the raw food by gradually transitioning the raw into the canned until your cat is eating an all raw diet. This process may take 2 - 4 weeks, and will vary by cat.
- If already feeding a canned food, gradually convert canned food eaters to raw by slowly mixing the raw food into the canned food. Over the course of 2 - 4 weeks fully convert to the raw.
- During the conversion process - feed 2 -3 times per day. removing the food after 20 minutes. Dispose of any uneaten food and feed fresh again for the next meal.
- Add some salmon oil to the top of the raw food to entice trial. Cats love it and it's a great source of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids.
- Once you have converted your cat, begin a rotational feeding schedule between proteins. This will enable your cat to benefit from the diverse nutrition sources.
- Stay determined and be persistent. The benefits of raw feeding are worth the short term inconvenience!
