I know there is still a bit too much grain and vegetable matter in the food for cats, but the cats have done fabulously on it, and I'm currently trying to remake the transition to raw. They do get supplemented with raw chicken hearts, gizzards, octopus, and fish. I feed a third a cup of dry plus a quarter of a can of wet per grown cat, and a half a cup of dry plus a quarter of a can of wet per growing kitten (I have two), so a little food goes a long way. They maintain their healthy weight perfectly on that and the kittens are growing at a good rate. Their coats just glow and even my cat Athena, who has had the driest, roughest coat I've known for a cat since I got her, feels silky now.
