@AlbertaLolita: Thanks for the advice! Fasting is a good idea, we have really vocal cats though so I’m interested to see how they handle it lol The lady we’re getting the kitten from gave us the recipe she uses for all her cats – she’s a pixie bob breeder so she’s got a lot of them lol.
2.5# ground chicken leg quarters (with bone. If no bone, add 2TBSPN bone meal and 1TBPSN unflavored gelatin.) Chicken thighs preferred.
.5# ground chicken hearts
.25# ground chicken livers
2 egg yolks
1/4 c. Dannon plain yoghurt (full fat)
2 tsp psyllium powder

As a supplement, feed what you’re having for dinner! RAW, beef, chicken, quail, pheasant, organ meats, limited fish, NO PORK!!!! Bring home ‘treats’, cut in strips and/or cubes and freeze. You can pull out a piece when needed.
Also, maybe yogurt, cream cheese, heavy cream as a treat.
**** This diet works especially well for kittens. As they get older, chunk the muscle meat into large bite sized pieces, grind the rest of the ingredients together and serve. The chunks help keep their teeth clean, as well as improve their digestion. Some grinders come with different plates. To make chunks and save time, use a plate with ¾” holes for a very course mix.
–I use NuVet Plus available online from http://www.NuVet.com 1-800-474-7044 order code 87457 Use as directed.
–I also add 1 scoop Ambrotose to the whole 3 ¼ lb mix above, or sprinkle on food like salt before serving. Order from http://www.choosereal.com or call 1-800-281-4469 The product code is 37101. I know it can be pricey, but a tub will last you a long time. When you consider what you’ve already invested, this is just “maintenance”.
–Zeolite detox powder. Add 1/8 scoop two times per day to food. http://www.regalsupplements.com/zeolitepure.html?AFFID=104278
