There are lots of smart, wonderful, and yes - sane - people out there feeding raw meat-based diets to their cats. Some are vets. I learned from many of them, vets and lay people alike, and continue to benefit from feedback on raw feeding from site visitors and from those I've come to trust on the issue.
I strongly encourage you to think twice about any recipe that contains grains or vegetables or relies on plant-based sources to supply vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or other essentials.
The range of passionate opinions on whether to feed raw -- and how to feed it if you do -- is vast. It's also sometimes snarky, personal, and downright weird. But ultimately, any civil and informed debate about how to properly feed a cat is one I welcome.
Check them out, do your own reading, make up your own mind. My suggestion is to remember the scientific facts concerning nutrition for carnivores and consider the wisdom of using any recipe that contains grains or vegetables or that relies on plant-based sources to supply vitamins, minerals, amino acids, or other essentials.
A great scientific source to learn the fundamentals about a cat's carnivore status is Dr. Debra Zoran's JAVMA article.
