I don't think people should be worried they aren't knowledgeable enough to feed their cats a balanced raw diet, most people are able to feed themselves (ok, it's hard to deny yourself the cheeseburgers etc
) so with a little research it's possible to feed your cats. And if you are able to feed a preprepared food it should take no more time than taking it out of the freezer in time to defrost !
If I read all this we are being spoiled here in the Netherlands. I want to feed my cats homemade but am still in the process of finding the right suppliers, buying an extra freezer and a meatgrinder. Meanwhile I can buy raw frozen foods meant for dogs but - with the right supplements - suitable for cats at petstores and supermarkets. I can buy 4 kinds of superior preprepared complete raw foods through the supply channels of the manufacturers themselves. There is even a kind made from free range meat ! I feed Carnibest,a complete food, there are different varieties, my cats especially like chicken/lamb. It is ground really fine so the cats don't get to chew a lot, I give them something extra to chew everyday, chicken necks or wings, drumsticks, lambheart, whole chicks, that kind of thing. I've been feeding completely raw for a month, my eldest tom already loved raw meat, my kittens got fed partially raw by their breeder, so the guys loved the Carnibest instead of kibble right away. My usually picky female cat took 4 days to change her mind. The only problem was that she didn't understand how to chew chunks of meat and/or bone, but this week she suddenly ate chicken necks and chicks, so there's hope.
