A raw diet is one of the best ways to fulfill cats’ nutritional requirements. There are numerous benefits from feeding a raw diet to your cat, including improved digestion, reduced stool odor and volume, increased energy, ability to maintain ideal weight, better dental health, and better urinary tract health.

Embraced for decades by holistically oriented pet parents and holistic veterinarians, more pet parents are looking to raw feeding as an alternative to feeding highly processed food.

Raw Paws Signature Blend Complete Turkey Patties for Dogs and Cats

We received the Raw Paws Signature Blend Complete Turkey Patties for Dogs and Cats.This blend is all meat – no veggies added with a ratio of 80% meat, 10% organ and 10% ground in bone.

This blend, even though labeled for both cats and dogs, contains appropriate levels of naturally occurring taurine for cats, who have higher taurine requirements than dogs.

The convenient 8 oz patties make portioning simple.

Putting Raw Paws Pet Food to the test

The 8 oz patties arrived in a 10 pound cryo-vaccuum sealed bag inside a well insulated container on dry ice, and were frozen solid on arrival.

Raw Paws suggests thawing the 10 pound pack in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours. Once partially thawed, you can separate the patties and refreeze what you’re not going to use within the next 3 to 4 days .The portion size works great for us, since 8 ounces is one day’s worth of food for the girls.

Raw Paws ground chicken does have bone ground in, but I did not see any visible fragments (something that has been an issue for me with some other brands in the past.) I like that the food contains no veggies or other fillers.

Allegra and Ruby both loved the food – our initial test resulted in clean plates for both of them. Since they’re not always receptive to change when it comes to their meals, that’s a testament to the palatability of the food.

In addition to the 8 ounce pattties, Raw Paws also offers 1 pound and 5 pound chubs.

Raw Paws Pet Food ships nationwide with free shipping on orders over $49 for non-frozen items, and orders over $199 for frozen items.

When it comes to supplements, it can be difficult to determine what’s good and what’s not. That’s why I’m delighted to introduce you to Tomlyn® today. This company creates supplements based on their belief that if you maintain a strong, clear focus on doing what is medically right for pets and combine it with on-staff veterinary oversight, the formulas created will be comparable to those sold in veterinary clinics.

Mews and Nips: Edna the Fire Cat

edna-fire-cat

This week’s biggest news story in the cat world involved a tortie: Edna had called San Francisco’s Fire Station 49 home for the past four years, providing purrs, cuddles and stress relief for the first responders at the station. After an anonymous complaint last week, the fire department ordered Edna removed because ” the cat in the facility compromised the sterility of supplies, equipment and pharmaceuticals used on patients.” The decision unleashed a firestorm (pardon the pun) of outrage across multiple social media platforms. As of this writing, Edna is living with one of the first responders, but San Francisco’s fire commissioner has asked the department to reconsider the decision. To keep up to date on Emma’s fate, follow her on Instagram.

If you missed any of the stories featured on the Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: Continue reading…
