Hi everyone, just looking for some advice. I am trying to stay away from kibble, but as we are occasionally gone for 8-9 hours, I like to leave out a measured amount of dry food for the kittens to share if they get hungry. They also get raw/canned three times a day. They are 5 1/2 months old. I am currently transitioning from NVI Chicken Raw Boost kibble to Ziwi Peak air-dried. I read a post on here that said you could leave our freeze-dried food and feed it like kibble without adding water and I wondered what you all thought of that idea? I feel like it would be okay since it is not making up much of their diet. It might also be helpful if we have to go out of town for a day or two. We usually have someone to stop by and feed canned or raw when we're out of town, but since our friend usually is only able to stop by once a day, we need something we can leave out for them.
The kittens have had Stella & Chewy's and Primal freeze-dried before, but I have always mixed it with water and fed it during a mealtime. I am not interested in getting an automatic feeder for canned food as Kaylee is a heartier eater than Amelia, and she would probably "steal" Amelia's portion.
