There are some websites by holistic vets who give tips on how to introduce raw to animals (very slowly for dogs to prevent digestive upset), and over a longer period of time for cats because they get “addicted” (literally!) to what they are fed....refusing all else. Takes time and patience but it’s possible to do. For cats, check out littlebigcat.com (Dr. Jean Hofve’s site/blog) and for pet issues in general: healthypets.mercola.com (Dr. Karen Becker). She has great articles on feeding and her book “Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats” is our raw feeding guide. The key is not to give up. It can take months to get cats to switch, but it can be done —dogs generally take less time because they are “scavengers” by nature and will eat most anything. Hope that helps!
Then again it is still painful to Me to remember about how several years ago a particular type of furry cat toy was becoming so popular with pet owners. Then one of the big three did an expos-e undercover video of a worker in a chiniese factory throwing tied up live cats into a huge pot of boiling water to fish them out later for the skins to make the furry toys.
Just broke My heart to hear about that.
Are you feeding with hide/hair/feathers on?
