Consider feeding Raw...
We understand that feeding Raw can be an intimidating endeavor to owning a Bengal cat but cats are Obligate Carnivores and as such a well balanced complete Raw diet is the healthiest and most cost effective way to be sure your new Bengal will be healthy and happy for years to come.
Feeding kibble is not the healthiest option for cats since they get most of the moisture from their food. If you do choose this option, make sure that you are providing a high quality, grain free canned which has the moisture they need. In nature, cats get the moisture they need from their prey, not kibble.
Feeding kibble can cause health issues later in life, such as Kidney issues and urine crystals. Just like humans, eating an unhealthy diet can cause health issues later in life.
Below we have included some links that will be helpful in the process of learning to feed a healthy diet to your Bengal.
Pre made Raw
For those that would rather not make their own food, we have a link below to purchase it from, "Viva Raw".
We have ordered from Viva Raw and have had great success feeding it. Our cats love the varieties and we love the fast shipping. If your baby is new to eating raw we suggest starting out with a single protein like Turkey.
The recipes they use are what is called a 80/10/10 mix meaning its 80% meat, 10% ground bone and 10 % secreting organs, like liver.
This code gives first time buyers 20% off your first order; TIKKASKYBENGALS.
We have also tried "Wild Coast Raw" that is made locally and can be purchased from Mud Bay Pet Stores. We really liked this food but may not be the most economical.
Make your own Raw Grind using 80/10/10 mix
Below you will find a link on a grinder that will handle chicken and turkey bones and a recipe calculator to help you figure out how much of Meat, Bone and Secreting Organs you will need.
We use the 80/10/10 mix on all our home grinds and the cats love it.
