There is no law "how to feed cats and kittens properly" where everyone is different.
We prefer to spend more money on buying good food for them vs feeding store bought, commercially processed foods and pay high vet bills later. Our cats do not suffer from urinating/kidney or other digestive issues. No hair loss or similar symptoms of vitamin/mineral/nutrient deficiency. Our cats all live a happy life and thankful for the foods offered .
We buy frozen wild caught fish. Sockeye and Steelhead are more digestible. Very healthy, natural and delicious for cats ! They love it! Also, we purchase chicken breast, boneless thighs , gizzards and hearts,ground or chunky beef. Normally, we try to grind all meats and yolks together and add small amounts salmon oil, a mixture to enhance the smell . All of our cats got used to it.
Shrimp and crab is a good source of natural food too . All sea foods must be WILD CAUGHT ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Farm raised seafood creates a food poisoning condition for cats, especially for young kittens.
Any fish may contain excessive amounts of mercury, so consumption of seafood has to be limited to up to 2 times per week.
Raw meat and fish ingredients must be deep frozen for at least 10 days before unthawing in order to kill any possible parasites and larvae presented.
We will give you some samples of pre-frozen food when you come to our residency to pick up your kitty.
Our kittens are fed 2- 3 times a day and adult cats cats are fed 1-2 times a day.
Kittens may eat as much as they want while eating the meal. Leftovers are taking away . Food cannot be available for kittens and cats at all times. Felines must be hungry when they eat their next meal. This a healthy way and is proven 100%.
We also raise ADGA registered Nubian dairy goats. There is plenty of fresh raw goat milk, yogurt and homemade soft cheese for our family and cats. In addition, we raise Barbados Black belly sheep and internal organs are often fed to our cats after butchering lambs. Fully or partially cooked meat and fish is another way to feed your feline, but raw food is more natural way for them.
Teeth maintenance is essential for kittens and adult cats. Dry kibble can be offered too to maintain their teeth.
