The salmonella article is exactly why I just can't do the raw food. Even Rad Cat, I cooked it a bit. I don't offer it any more, but when I used the freeze dried raw, I saw that as not really raw. When I rehydrated it with warm water it smelled cooked. Anyway, Rad Cat wasn't the only thing in the rotation. I fixed it for their 3rd meal bed snack. I'm not sure I believe that cooking destroys the nutrients in the meat but I'm not sure if Rad Cat uses some sort of supplemental mix that they add which might be heat sensitive. In any case, it's not a very economical choice because it's impossible to scoop out a meal's worth out of the frozen brick, so then you have to thaw it all and then it's like you have a day to use it.Just please remember that your cat needs a balanced diet. You can certainly achieve that with homemade food - raw or cooked - but it's something to keep in mind. Just feeding beef is not a good idea and neither is just feeding chicken breast. As a treat for a healthy cat, sure but then it should be less than 10% of your cat's overall nutrition.
