Okay, so I recently switched all my critters (dogs and Maple) to Taste of the Wild. Maple LOVES the TOTW green can cat food. I've been feeding dry in the am and wet in the evening. It seems to be working well. I also have, since we brought Maple home, fed raw scraps (a tiny piece of chicken breast or deer when I happen to be cooking it) so that she wouldn't turn her nose up if I ever decided to go raw.
Well, I've put my pooches on a 25% raw diet, and I will happily do the same for Maple but I don't know where to start.
As soon as this bag is gone we will be feeding ALL canned food. But I want them to have some of the huge benefits of raw as well.
I can't go ALL raw because, simply, we don't have the freezer space.
1. Is TOTW okay for cats? She likes it MUCH better than BB Wilderness (although I may create a rotation).
2. How do I go about feeding the kitty 25% raw?
Thanks! I actually bought Maple chicken gizzards, but I'm too scared to feed any yet! Mol!
Oh! One more thing,
3. She has gained a LOT of weight in the last couple of months. She's getting a little pudgy and has a HUGE spay pouch. Is this normal for a 1 year old indoor kitty? We do play with her, but she doesn't do a whole lot energy wise, and she ALWAYS begs for "more" food. I'm not sure I know the appropriate amount to feed her, and I do want her to be healthy!
