The information you provided as well as the links on cat feeding its has helped Charlie tremendously! Now I can say with great pride he has graduated to raw. I will still use the canned food in rotation but to me seeing Charlie woof down his raw gave me great joy! Thanks again for your help!!!

I'm so glad to have been of assistance to you and your Charlie. I, too, use canned still in rotation. It's helpful to have them still willing to eat canned, for instance when one has the flu and is too sick to do much more than open a can.

Are you feeding commercial raw?

He's been eating a few bits of the raw deer that was given to me. Along with the meat he gets the heart, liver ( he LOVES), spleen etc. I was a bit skeptical to give it to him first, but when he went near the dog's bowl and started eating the scraps I gave him his own portion.

Also no more fish based foods, if I buy the canned its poultry or beef.

Remember that for cats the phosphurous/calcium balance is extremely important. If you are feeding less than 15% of his intake in raw muscle meat (heart is considered muscle) that's okay, but any more than that needs to be balanced with calcium, either by bone or a supplement. Be careful not to give too much liver at once, it is very high in vitamin A.

Yeap that was the first week he had the raw. The second week he's been eating the feet, wings, pork etc. The first time I gave him those things he turned up his nose. Snobby little bugger. Now he's "right" there along with the dogs.
