How to feed kitty right. Watch for additional articles on fiber, calcium:phosphorous, pre-made raw diets, etc.

Pork chunks Recipe
This recipe is for those kitties who like their meat cut up into chunks, as opposed to ground-up. It is better for cats as it gives their jaws a bit of a workout.

Since different meats and veggies have varying amounts of calcium and phosphorus, it is imperative that you first determine how much calcium and phosphorous there is in a given type of meat so that you can then calculate how much calcium to add to a lb of meat to attain the ideal Ca:Phos ratio which ranges from 1.2 - 1.4 Ca: 1 Phos We have a calculator available to forum members that does this very easily.
