"My cat won't eat this new raw food; what should I do?"
Give up immediately and fill a gravity feeder with cheap kibble.
There are so many different factors involved in how quickly and enthusiastically a cat will accept a new diet. If you're still leaving dry food out all and allowing her to "free-feed" off that, then you're not letting hunger work in your favor. You're not doing your cat any favors by feeding dry food. Perhaps begin by limiting meal times with dry food, then switch over to a quality canned food.
When kitty's eating canned food, ditch the kibble and start sneaking very small amounts of the raw food into that food and slowly increasing the amount over time until the transition is complete.
Get the dry food OUT of your house. Your cat can probably smell it and will hold out stubbornly if she knows it's there.
Devoted kibble addicts often have a difficult time accepting the new food, so you have to employ some tough love, and gather your own patience while honing your feline manipulation skills to get your cat eating healthier food.
