If you’ve come into Kriser’s, you know we love talking about the Raw Diet. It’s what many of our team feeds our own furry families, cats included. Why do we love raw for our kitties?
1. It’s the closest thing to their ancestrial diet. Remember, cats are hunters. Raw is the closest thing to prey.
2. It has all the natural moisture and nutrients of raw proteins, and pets gobble it up!
3. It’s tasty!
Yes, frozen raw requires a bit of planning, since you have to defrost the meal in advance. (Microwaving kind of defeats the purpose!) But Rad Cat, one of our favorite raw cat foods makes that a bit easier. This brand is only available in our stores in Colorado, Illinois and Texas (for now), but it’s a great option for your finicky felines. The 8 oz tub is just about right for 3 days worth of food, which is just about as long as we recommend leaving raw food defrosted in your fridge. Perfect! And if you have multiple cats, there’s a 16oz option for you as well!
As with any food, and particularly with raw, we strongly recommend a probiotic and enzyme supplement to help break it down and make it more efficiently utilized by your pet’s body.
