CRUNCHY CAT: Loves Dry Kibble

CRUNCHY CAT: Loves Dry Kibble

Consider crumbling a bit of Freeze-Dried Primal onto kibble meals. If you have a crunchy cat, add warm water very slowly, in small amounts, to each meal as you increase the freeze-dried food and decrease the kibble.

Replace a bit of each canned meal by stirring in a few thawed Pronto morsels. Once your cat decides they like their new raw food, you can begin the transition. If you have a canned cat, you may want to warm up their canned meal before stirring in the raw food to keep the temperature from getting too cold. Take it as slowly as necessary to meet your cat’s preferences.

START SLOWLY

Remember the three T’s: texture, temperature and taste are important to your kitty. And with premium whole food ingredients, Primal has the taste covered. A cat transition to raw can take anywhere from 3 to 10 days based on your cat's age and preferences. Take it slow and don't rush the process.

Pro TiP:

The Primal Starter Pak or 1# Pronto bag are also great choices for those who want to introduce raw foods to their cat but aren't ready to purchase a full-size product. For thawing, rehydrating, and safe handling tips, watch our instructional videos.

COMPLETING THE TRANSITION

You may notice your cat is more excited about mealtime, as well as less smell in the litter box and less shedding on the sofa. Here's how to complete their transition to a fully raw diet:

If you’re still offering some of their original canned or dry foods, now is the time to drop it! Begin feeding a full meal of Primal twice daily. Don’t worry about grazing throughout the day–cats aren’t meant to graze. Feeding two meals a day is healthier for their body and mind. 

Pro TiP:

If you need something to keep your cat busy during the day, try a Raw Chicken Neck instead of a meal up to three times a week or an interactive toy with a few Primal Nibs.
