How to make a Raw Diet at Home for your Savannah Cat.
We at Luxury Savannahs feed our cats and kittens a raw diet a few times per week in order to keep up the protein, vitamins, and nutrients they need.
**An easy way to feed your Savannah raw is to give XS or S baby chicks or quail (dethawed) throughout the week so your cat and kitten has all of the nutrition that the organs, bones and feathers provide. Feeder mice are also great for the fur and organs and bones are very nutritious for your Savannah. (These can be purchased online. Please try not to feed your Savannah LIVE mice (unless pinky mice) or birds. It is best to purchase them frozen)
Also, it is also great to give your cat the opportunity to eat raw eggs. If we are cooking eggs for our family we will give our Savannahs some of the egg yolk and egg white from the bowl (after we are finished pouring eggs into a pan or we will separate into a different bowl for the cats) This has protein. It is also okay to give your cat the egg shell! This has calcium that is great for your cat!
Our friends at African Image Savannahs have given us a basic recipe to share for anyone interested in making a Raw diet at home for their cats!
Raw with Organs basics:
1 pound raw hearts (chicken or beef) per 4lbs of chicken
1 pound of liver per 9 pounds of chicken
Chicken breast, thigh, drums or legs, and/or rabbit (gutted), duck, game hen, or quail (just chicken is fine)
Grind all together and freeze any that won't be used within 3 days
Kittens will eat 1/4-1/3 cup 2x per day and adult cats will eat 3/4 a cup 2x per day.
Do not reheat or heat up in the microwave. Heating up the raw will make it hard to digest when it cooks the bone
You can use hearts as treats.
Also if you do not want to grind up bones, you can add egg and egg shells to the grinder as well. Add two egg whites and one yolk. (too much yolk can be fatty)
