Yes, my cats and dogs get raw meat and bones. I am lucky that I have a supplier of high-quality, hormone/antibiotic-free meats. They are not for human consumption because they are ground up with bones and other parts of the animals that we normally wouldn't want--even intestines. Check out my blog on "Jake" and you will see why I highly support the "BARF" (Biologically Appropriate Raw Foods) Diet for my carnivorous pets.
I like to add for some people that might think that feeding your dogs raw meat might make them dangerous to other animals (I've been told this by well-meaning friends) that my 3 very large dogs (2 labs and a pit) romp with my goats. It's a sight to see. My neighbor (whose dog attacked his sheep) can't believe his eyes! It's early training (familiarity).

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Feyr looks to be a blue (colour) point (pattern) Ragdoll (breed). "Bicolour" just means "with white". We crazy cat ladies like to make pet owners think we're smarter than we really are with fancy terminology.

Devon Rex. I have photos in my gallery.

You only need to feed two meals per day, no need for kibble in between unless you have a kitten.

She actually purchases it at Pet Planet. She also feeds kibble but not grain kibble. But the person I talked to at my local (Trail Blazers) store said that I shouldn't feed kibble too. If I don't leave kibble out the poor boy would starve as I am gone about 10 hours a day for work. I purchased some frozen raw food at Trail Blazers for now. Not sure I have the time either to make the food right. I will check out your friends site.
What kind of cats do you breed?

Edit Thanks

You'll find recipes online. Be certain you include bone meal and taurine in whatever you make. I'm a cat breeder and rescuer but I don't feed a homemade diet because I don't believe I have the time to do it properly, but I will experiment one day soon.

One of my Devon Rex friends makes her own raw:
manxtech.tripod.com/rawdiet.html

Ask your breeder for advice. If she advocates raw, she'll have favourite recipes that work for her cats.

Do any of you do raw diet for your furry companions?
How do you do it?. There is lots of information out there. Some say feed them it ground some say, it should be in as real a state as possible (carcass). The new kitten is on a raw diet, but it is ground and frozen bought from the pet store. Just wondering on other opinions. Thanks
