I happen to live in a very pro raw feeding city so I have loads of resources.
It does help to have support but if you can get the premade mix all you need is the meat and livers. I use the Feline Future sometimes and 5 out of 6 gobble it up. Pampered Prince Cleo only likes one brand of raw food.
Even if a person were able to give one raw meal a day it could go a long way.
My foster kitty is on dry and canned but I gave her a raw food snack and she scarfed it up. Sometimes it is a matter of finding the right mixture and the right meat. Some cats LOVE beef. Mary goes bananas over it. Lucia loves anything. Seldon loves everything but if it is chicken or turkey he is even happier. Saffron and Sachi will only eat my homemade food.
I know it is hard to find support in some places and it seems scary-RAW
-but once I saw the benefits I was hooked and never looked back. The litterboxes that don't stink will keep me doing if nothing else. My foster's box reeks in comparison and I find myself cleaning it 3 times a day. Raw food eaters have fewer poops and less odorous ones.
