Raw Feeding for Kittens
Raw fed kittens truly thrive. As obligate carnivores descendant from North African wildcats, their diet should mimic the whole prey they naturally hunt in the wild. This consists of raw muscle meat, bones and organs. Your kitten might even start to show you their predator behaviors and hunt birds, lizards and rodents around the house.
Why Feed your Kitten a Raw Diet
Cats cannot survive without protein from meat. Protein is the only nutrient they are able to burn for energy. The various nutrients they get from meat fuels every function in their bodies so if they aren’t getting enough, their health will suffer.
Your kitten will benefit from a raw food diet in the following areas of health:
- Development of immune functions
- Skin and coat condition
- Healthy growth and development
- Oral health
- Energy and stamina
Transitioning your kitten to a raw diet
If your kitten has not been raw fed previously, it is recommended that you transition them to their new diet slowly.
Kittens can take longer to transition to their diet than puppies. They are weary of change and therefore tend to be fussier eaters. But remember, your kitten was built to consume raw meat and bones, just like their cousins in the Sahara.
Choosing Raw Food Products for your Kitten
