I recently calculated that I spend $4.19 everyday for my one cat who eats 100% raw. This is based on 6 freeze dried primal nuggets per day. I need to stick to a 100% raw diet due health issues (diarrhea). But the cost is just outrageous! Frozen nuggets are cheaper but he got sick of it and refuses them. I have a 2nd cat who eats high quality canned and he costs $80/month to feed. It's actually better for him because he's prone to constipation. I end up spending about $200/month on cat food. More importantly my cat gets tired of eating the same thing all the time. This is where rad cat came in but as we all sadly know they are no more. I need to add variety because I know my cat will get sick of the freeze dried primal and then I'll have nothing to feed him. So the natural conclusion was that I needed to start making cat food. I've been saying I wanted to do this for a long time. We're moving into a new apartment in December and I'm planning in buying a freezer chest, grinder, and kitchen scale. I guess the first year I'll break even with the equipment I need to purchase. Some Questions: 1 - Do you feed 100% homemade raw? If I want to save a lot it's economical to feed 100% homemade. But I'm scared that I'll hurt my cat. Would love to hear about some healthy cats on all home made raw. 2 - I've seen 80/10/10 mentioned a lot. Is this by weight or volume? 3 - Is 10% too much bone for a lot of cats? Guessing 7% is better? If so, where do you put the other 3%? To muscle (meat and heart) or organs (kidney and whatever else)? Does this affect the amount of supplements to put in? 4 - Is it cheaper to buy all the supplements separately or is a mix better? 5 - For my raw rabbit feeders. How do you compensate for such a lean meat? Do you just leave extra chicken skin on when you feed chicken to balance it out? My plan is this: A - Chicken from supermarket using Dr. Pierson's recipe. Minus the baking. So i will be grinding chicken bone. Planning on trying this first before I start ordering a ton of other meats from Hare Today. Maybe I'll start off with chicken thigh and a premix. B - Whole Rabbit Grind (no fur) from Hare Today with extra rabbit meat mixed in. Individual supplements. No bone grinding needed. C - Turkey chunks from Hare Today with eggshell powder and maybe a premix. I want to mix it up with the phosphorus content because Rad Cat didn't use bone. No bone grinding needed. D - Quail grind from Hare Today with extra turkey meat mixed in and individual supplements. Not too much. Just as a treat meal to mix it up. Way too expensive to be a staple.
