If you are looking for a good Homemade Raw Recipe
It is important that you feed the same food your breeder is feeding when your kittens come home. If you want to switch to a different food that is ok but do it slowly.
UNTIL THE KITTENS GET OLDER PLEASE STICK TO CHICKEN NOT BEEF.
This is the recipe :
6.5 lb Batch Chicken and Beef
5 lbs of Beef Meat/chicken thighs
5.25 oz Chicken Liver
5.25 oz of other secreting organ( we use beef kidneys)
11.5 ounces of chicken hearts or beef hearts
3.5 tsp of eggshell powder
If you don’t want to grind your own egg shells you can buy a powder
This is one I found on Amazon Click here> Amazon Eggshell replacement
If you plan on transitioning from a wet Raw food we recommend Freeze Dried. This is a great option for Raw feeding or introducing different proteins. This is also an option for feeding a balanced RAW diet without the fuss of dealing with raw meat. Stella and Chewy’s, Primal Pet,
If you are planning to change you need to SLOWLY change to the new food (over the course of at minimum 2 weeks) to avoid upsetting the kittens’ digestive system.
There are other sources of Raw food that can be delivered to your door such as: Darwins Pet Hare Today Balanced Blends
WHAT SHOULD I FEED MY BENGAL
Many people always ask "What is the best thing to feed our Bengal/Cat"
The BIGGEST answer will be RAW because it is the best option. if you truly want the best then the answer is a well balanced Raw diet. 80% protein 10% bone and 10% secreting organs.
2nd best option is a wet high content protein canned food. They need a food source with a high moisture content as well as high protein and proper nutrients.
***Almost Any wet canned food is better than kibble.
Last resort is dry kibble. If you choose Kibble I would go with INSTINCT Limited Ingredient. Instinct at least has a freeze dried Raw coating. Or a grain free food like Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain.
Cats are obligate carnivores. This means they eat prey ie. Meat and bone and organs.... Does this sound familiar. These are the ingredients to a raw diet. Nowhere in the history of felines do they roam the wild and pluck kibble from trees or fruits and veggies from farm lands.
To each their own, but just know these are the 2 options best and 2 best for your feline family member with dry kibble coming in behind dead
Kibble for Dogs was first made commercial at the end of the 19th century circa 1960 and for cats around 1976 and was made to make life easier for pet owners and a nice money earner for the manufacturers. Never was it ever designed with the cats health in mind. 😉 Before then, domestic cats spent thousands of years catching rodents, birds and other small animals and probably receiving scraps of meat from their humans.
Back then people didn't even keep cats as pets. They were useful for keeping vermin at bay so people let them take shelter in the barns and whatnot. The cats earned their keep and were not fed by people. I certainly don't understand the mentality that mother nature is wrong and humans know what's best for cats.
Not sure how anyone can say raw is a fad. Something cats ate for thousands of years before kibble was even invented? Kibble on the other hand is a relatively recent invention and should be considered the real fad.
