Commercial Raw Cat Food item created by Anne, Apr 11, 2015
Pros - high quality, fast customer service
Cons - expensive, lousy containers, portion it out yourself
I've been feeding Rad Cat since I decided to switch to a mostly raw food diet. I think it was my first time my rescue ate raw because it took about three days for him to realize it was food that he can actually eat through coaxing him with my finger. Now he gulps it down like there's no tomorrow. I love how it is all natural, free-range and organic which is why the cost is so high. I mostly feed venison, chicken, lamb, and turkey. My cat really enjoys lamb. I don't like how flimsy their containers are and hope they'd change it. Due to the cost, I don't feed it as often as I would like but I would highly recommend to all who want to give commercial raw food a try.
Pros - Cats love this. Very high quality and simple to serve.
Cons - Pricey for multiple cat homes
My cats love RadCat. I usually make my own raw but like to serve either RadCat Turkey or Venison once or twice a month. Such a high quality food I would probably give up making my own if I could afford to feed three cats RadCat.
Pros - Very pure food, appeals to cats
Cons - Gloppy, a bit pricy so shop around!
Our cats love Rad Cat's turkey and chicken: they get a small afternoon meal of one or the other every day and always lap it up quickly. They don't like Rad Cat's lamb, which looks very fatty, and I haven't tried them on the beef or venison. One of the best aspects of a very pure, meaty, food like Rad Cat is that even a small serving keeps the cats sated for a long time. A little goes a long way, which definitely makes the food worth the money.
I love that Rad Cat's ingredient list is short and contains no fillers. I also like the company's testing program. Since it's such simple, appealing food, Rad Cat seems to be a common way to introduce cats to raw foods. We first found Rad Cat when a pet food store employee suggested it for our elderly cat who was in home hospice mode: she'd never eaten raw food but loved the chicken. It was one of the few foods she'd eat and it agreed with her. The only downside to Rad Cat is that it's sold in frozen tubs so it needs to be portioned out and/or defrosted and fed within three or four days. I defrost a large tub and portion everything into small containers that I refreeze; it's an easy task, though the food is a bit gloppy!
Like @Kat0121, I'd recommend seeking out Rad Cat at a local store to avoid shipping charges for frozen food. Nearly any independent store in my area will order Rad Cat, though the prices vary widely and wildly, so it's worth checking around to find the lowest price. I pay $12.99 for a 24-ounce container, which makes the serving cost around the same as "premium" canned foods, but some stores charge three or four dollars more for the same thing.
Pros - ALL my cats love it
Cons - A bit of a pain to get locally , no duck
I like to keep some commercial raw in my rotation. We've tried other brands with lukewarm and cold results. Enter Rad Cat. All 3 cats give this the 2 paws up. They love the chicken and turkey especially. I wish they had duck as all 3 cats love duck. You'll need to find a specialty pet store or an online retailer to get it though. I'd strongly recommend finding a local pet store who will special order it for you before ordering online. That way your cats can try it before you commit and you won't have to pay the (likely) insane shipping charges for the handling of raw, frozen meat.
This is a very high quality food and they clearly take pride in what they do. In a perfect world, it would be all my cats ate but my budget does not allow for this, sadly. I keep it around as much as possible as they really enjoy it. Give it a try. I doubt you'll regret it. I'd suggest starting with the chicken or turkey.
