Welcome to Raw Foodie Friday where I'll be sharing recipes of what I feed to my dogs. Every week, I receive an email from someone who wants me to give them a balanced raw food recipe. I've attempted to do this many times in the past, and I found that I didn't have the experience; especially back when all of my raw meals were made with a base mix. Today, I make raw meals on the fly daily, and my dogs are thriving, and I'm excited to share those meals with others who need inspiration.
Raw Cat Food Recipe
This week, I want to focus on making cat food. My cats eat Rad Cat (yep, I still have tons of it, bought out the store and the co-op) mixed with wet food. I'm also feeding Cosmo the cat food recipe by Darwin's Pet. But I haven't made cat food yet. He's tried the dogs' food, but I haven't made cat food specifically for him because I'm nervous about getting it wrong. So I'm doing some research and will be sharing some videos with you.
Also, if you have tips, please share them with me. Thanks!

Can Cats Eat Egg Whites?
Yes! There was a period of time when people thought feeding egg whites to pets would cause a biotin deficiency, but there is only a risk if we're ONLY feeding egg whites. Feeding the whole egg is great for both our dogs and cats.
