How to transition your cat to a raw cat food diet...
The standard rules that applies to the entire process is...
- Take baby steps and be patient. Each cat will transition at their own pace and each may require a different or multiple techniques to accomplish the task.
- Age does not matter. I have personally transitioned kittens to seniors.
- Your cat should eat at every meal time and not loose weight during the process.
- Starvation should not be a manner in which to encourage them to transition.
Here are a few quality and reliable links that provide a lot of detail on transitioning:
