Question by : Raw food diet for 12-week old kitten?
My husband and I just brought home a 12-week old Siamese kitten. His breeder feeds her cats and kittens good quality dry and wet foods, but I would like to introduce our little guy to a raw food diet. We discovered (after years of numerous vet visits) that manufactured cat foods (especially the dry kinds) tend to be lacking certain nutritional components, so we switched our cats to a raw-food (meat) diet, and both regained their full strengths and only needed to go to the vet once a year for their check-ups and shots. It was amazing how well this switch worked. My question is, how should I go about switching our kitten to this type of diet. The reason I ask this is because we’ve only ever “switched over” adult cats, not a kitten. Kittens aren’t just “miniature cats”, and have their own specific nutritional requirements, so I want to be sure of how to do this before we dive in head-first. Also, how much should we feed him each time?
“old cat lady”: I feed my adult cats various fresh, organic meats (chicken, turkey, rabbit, etc) as well as the same quality of fresh organ meats.

Ask your vet!!!! Puh-leeze!
Why don’t you check with your VET instead of the idiots on here?!? I see so many wrong answers to really easy things here that I can’t believe anyone would even consider asking something this important on YA
