Cats, like dogs, have had a diet based on whole raw foods since the beginning of time. It is only by human intervention have our cats started to eat grain and wheat based diets and as a result the levels of disease, skin condition, immune dysfunction have escalated.
Cats have a unique metabolic system and are required to eat frequent, small meals to keep this balanced. When switching to a raw food diet it is really important to take this into consideration. It is not healthy to let cats fast in any way and you may need to mix with their current diet, gradually altering the ratios until you are feeding 100% raw.
Cats require an essential aminio acid called taurine. They cannot create this like dogs do thus rely on a diet high in taurine for health and wellbeing. Taurine is found in most meats but most readily available in the heart organ. A raw diet high in heart and rich in meats provides a sound foundation for the cats nutritional requirements.
