Rad Cat Raw Diet Premium Raw Food for Cats is a premium, all-natural, complete, and balanced raw diet formulated exclusively for the domestic feline carnivore. For cats, simple is better – and they love it! Rad Cat Raw Diet is made as close as possible to the diet that nature intended for domestic feline carnivores. Help your cats experience true health and increased vitality by giving them food they were meant to eat.

  • USDA Inspected and US Sourced
  • Antibiotic and hormone-free
  • Free-range or pasture-raised
  • No preservatives
  • No by-products
  • No grains
  • No fruits or vegetables

Rad Cat Raw Diet Premium Raw Food for Cats cater to the obligate carnivore. Even though domesticated cats no longer need to hunt as their ancestors have, their digestive systems remain unchanged. Feeding a raw diet closely mirrors what cats would naturally eat in the wild, contributing to true health and vitality. Cats are healthiest and happiest on a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. As grains have proven to be an allergen for many cats, we decided not to include them.

This simple philosophy provides a broad range of health benefits including: natural weight control, healthy skin and coat, and naturally clean teeth. Staying true to the most natural, evolutionary feline diet, no fruits or vegetables re added to these products. The main ingredient is meat - muscle and organ - which is incredibly appealing to cats’ natural, carnivorous instincts.

The Benefits of a Raw Cat Food Diet

  • Healthy skin and coat - Many cats are allergic to grains, which can lead to pathologic skin conditions.
  • Naturally clean teeth - Many dry foods leave a starchy coating on teeth, which promotes plaque. Feeding a raw diet can lead to healthier teeth and gums.
  • Decreased litter box odor - Many pet foods include protein that is indigestible, which leads to an undesirable odor at the litter box.
  • Natural weight control - Cats are healthiest on a high protein, low carbohydrate diet.
  • Increased energy and vitality - Cat's digestive systems are designed to ingest raw meat and are healthiest eating what Nature intended.

Some Changes to Expect

After a full transition to a raw diet, cats typically will drink less water. Cats in the wild get most of their water from their food. A raw meat diet naturally contains more moisture than dry or canned food, so your cat may be less thirsty, yet be getting plenty of water.

There may be a change in the volume, odor, and color of feces. It will stink less! It may also be somewhat harder and dryer and be colored shades of dark and light brown. Much of the crude protein and crude fiber in most commercial dry and canned cat foods is not digestible and contributes to a higher volume of stool. Along with the assurance of knowing that all the food that is ingested is being digested, the reduction of odor is a nice side-benefit.

Overweight Cats tend to lose weight. However, weight loss must be closely monitored. Rapid weight loss can lead to serious health problems. A holistic veterinarian who is skilled in transitioning to raw diets can provide the best advice, especially when transitioning a cat with chronic health issues.

Lethargic Cats start to play more and may even exhibit hunting behavior. Cats are healthiest when fed a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. When cats aren’t experiencing the metabolic highs and lows associated with high carbohydrate intake from grains, they will use protein as their energy source, as they were designed by nature to do. This tends to provide more sustained energy throughout the day and reduces the need to "graze".

Allergies tend to clear up, which may be a result of less exposure to potential food allergens. Many cats have allergies to grains that can range from very mild to severe. These allergies can manifest on the skin, can affect digestion, and also contribute to runny nose and eyes. The reduction in allergic symptoms may be a result of not only a reduced exposure to allergens from a higher quality food, but also from a stronger immune system. The more nutritious the food, the stronger the immune system will be.

Fur becomes incredibly soft and shedding is reduced. This can be the result of better nutrition and is typically one of the initial benefits observed after changing cats to a raw diet. There may also be a reduction in human allergic reactions to cats due to the reduction of dander.

Available in Beef, Chicken, Lamb, Pork, Turkey and Venison, Sold frozen in 8 oz, 16 oz and 24 oz sizes.

All of our complete and balanced raw diets meet and exceed AAFCO guidelines for all life stages of a cats life.

Feeding Guide

  • Any change to a cat’s diet can cause digestive upset, so close monitoring through the transition period is essential.
  • Go slow, use caution, and consult a holistic veterinarian.
  • Feed adult cats approximately 3.5 ounces (a healthy 1/4 to 1/3 cup) twice per day, based on the cat’s age, size and activity level.
  • Younger cats may eat larger meals.
  • Weaned kittens should be fed multiple small meals throughout the day.
  • It is best to serve food at room temperature. Do not cook.

Safe Handling

Always handle raw cat food the same as any other raw meat product. Clean surfaces immediately and never leave the raw food where small children can have access to it. Also, after offering raw food to cats, do not leave the food out for more than 30 minutes and discard all left-overs.

Recommendations for Transitioning Cats to Raw Food Diets

There are several methods for transitioning cats to a raw-meat diet. A cat’s natural instinct is to ‘fixate’ on food, which helps kittens to learn what is food and to recognize it when they see and smell it. What is sometimes referred to as a cat being ‘finicky’ is really a manifestation of this natural tendency. Some cats require a gradual transition to a raw diet, while others take to it immediately. Use the method that seems to fit the cat’s personality best. When changing to a raw meat diet, we recommend eventually stopping all feeding of dry food – completely.

Cats Currently on a Kibble Diet Only
Begin by offering a small sample. If they taste the sample at all, begin offering small amounts as a treat in the morning and evening. Gradually reduce the quantity of kibble left out for the day. Move toward one set meal in the morning and one in the evening with the raw and dry food, slowly increasing the raw portion and decreasing the kibble until the cat is completely transitioned.

Another option is to transition to a commercial wet food, then transition to the raw diet from the canned food.

Cats Currently on Wet Food Only
Begin a feeding schedule of twice per day. Place small amounts of the raw diet next to the regular diet or mix with their current wet food. Gradually begin increasing the ratio of raw to canned until the transition is complete.

Cats Currently Eating both Dry and Wet Food
Slowly move to a feeding schedule for the wet food twice per day and reduce the amount of kibble left out during the day for grazing. Add small amounts of the raw diet to the canned wet food or offer as a separate treat at meal time. Gradually begin offering kibble only during meals, and eventually not at all.

For cats that have trouble recognizing a raw diet as food and are completely ignoring it all together, here is something to try:

Place a tablespoon of raw food next to their regular food. This will let the cat begin to associate raw food with their meal time. It may be a slow process, with the cat only sniffing it at first, but gradually, they begin to decide this might also be food, will taste it, and eventually begin a transition.

There is $14.95 shipping surcharge on all frozen raw orders. Please read the following carefully:

  • Shipping Fees  - Frozen raw orders no longer qualify for Free & Flat Rate Shipping due to increased costs. We currently ship all frozen raw via FedEx Ground or FedEx 2 Day Air based on estimated time to your your shipping address. To avoid spoilage, shipments which would take more than 3 days to arrive by ground must be upgraded to FedEx 2 Day Air.

  • Tuesday Shipping - All frozen raw orders ship on Tuesdays. Due to stocking requirements, orders placed by midnight Sunday will ship that Tuesday. Orders placed on Monday or later will ship the following Tuesday.

  • Special Packaging - All raw food and bones are shipped frozen in special styrofoam-lined boxes with dry ice. The frozen raw surcharge is to cover the cost of the dry ice and special packaging.

  • Delivery Time – Time frames vary by state but in most cases your delivery will be on Thursday or Friday. If you will not be available to receive your order and place it in the freezer within 24 hours of delivery, consider placing your order another time.  

  • Holiday Shipping Restraints - Due to the FedEx holiday schedule we are unable to ship frozen raw on the holiday weeks of July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's.

  • Delivery Instructions - Please ship to an address where someone will be available to accept the order. If this is not possible, please leave a note for the delivery person on the scheduled day of delivery with instructions on where to leave it (that is not in the hot sun). We cannot offer refunds or reships on thawed food that is not signed for by a person at the time of delivery.

  • Returns - Because of the unique shipping and handling needs of frozen raw products, we are unable to except returns on these products. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Care Team at service@onlynaturalpet.com or 888-937-6677.

  • SEPARATE RAW FOOD ORDERS - If you are ordering both frozen raw food or bones and other, non-frozen items, you will need to place two separate orders, one with your frozen raw items and one with your non-frozen items.

  • Rad Cat Containers: - As retailers of Rad Cat and not the manufacturer, we have no control over the packaging of the product itself. We have found that the plastic container that the manufacturer uses can become brittle in low temperatures and break or split open during the shipping process. Please be aware that we will never ship any Rad Cat containers that are open or split in any way and we package them very carefully, however there is an inherent risk that it may happen in transit. Moving forward we will no longer be able to refund, replace or reship this product should this occur once it leaves our warehouse.

Comments about Rad Cat Raw Cat Food Diet:

My cat has rejected every other brand of frozen raw food that she has tried. (She'll eat freeze dried raw food, but not if it gets old.) I bought a container of the turkey, worrying she would reject it like the rest, but hopeful she'd like it because it has few non-meat ingredients (which she generally dislikes) and mostly all a single meat (which she prefers to most blends). She did love it, to the point where it's tripping me up to just feed her and never come back to uneaten food. Hopefully she keeps liking it!

Her background: she's an older (14 year old) cat who was feral and has been on raw food her whole life, with a few brief adverse stints on high quality kibble. (Allergies, smelly stools, etc). She likes poultry the best, followed by fish, with mammals coming in last. (This is why a lot of blends are problematic for her - when they are, say, poultry and mammal, she rejects them on account of the mammal). She's a tiny, slim, and still very active cat.

How I'm feeding her: I thawed the container, then froze roughly half ounce chunks on a tray covered in aluminium foil. After frozen, I put them in a Ziploc bag in the freezer. When I feed her, I give her a few of the chunks, and she eats them when they thaw (or sometimes, like tonight, before they thaw). I supplement with chicken organ meat because she's used to it and likes it.

Comments about Rad Cat Raw Cat Food Diet:

I started feeding Rad Cat when my 11.5 year old Siamese was diagnosed with diabetes. He needed a low-carbohydrate diet that would help him maintain hydration. The cause of diabetes in his case was a rarely diagnosed disease called acromegaly (pituitary tumor) causing unregulated secretion of growth hormone and insulin resistance. He became dehydrated easily. This food helps him stay hydrated without having to resort to sub-Q fluids (which he resists). Vets will not recommend raw diets due to the increased risk of infection from E.Coli and salmonella bacteria, but if your cat is older and has a serious illness you don't have a lot to lose anyway. This food has helped my cat.

    Comments about Rad Cat Raw Cat Food Diet:

    I have some sickly older cats and thought the raw food would help. They can't wait for me to get it on the plate! They LOVE it! Weren't too enthused about venison just chicken. The cats ARE feeling better so I will continue to purchase the raw chicken for them.

        Comments about Rad Cat Raw Cat Food Diet:

        RadCat was recommended to me at a Petfoodexpress location. Long story short, tried it for 4 weeks, it did NOT improve cat's coat and skin and was an absolute mess to divide into portions.

        RadCat's response about the downsides of their packaging was not a compassionate one and eventually they stopped replying altogether. We switched to Darwin's, who think one step ahead and provide a convenient packaging (individually sealed portions, plus they send you a container for thawing).

        The RadCat food comes in 3 different containers, 8, 16 and 24 ounces. And while 8 ounces is OK to thaw once and keep that way in the fridge, the 24 ounces one needs to be thawed and separated into portions, for feeding one or even two kitties. This is EXTREMELY hard to do with the current packaging type (jan 2017).

        You have to divide the meat into portions yourself and freeze it again in your packaging of choice. In practice, this means a lot of extra cleaning up every two days and a lot of opportunities for human food contamination. This is just not convenient or safe.

        Their response was something like, our containers are recyclable and that's very good on its own. We also don't get freezer burn. The patties will never be as good as our ground meat. OK, that made sense for a few minutes.

        Well, RadCat, thanks for doing something that benefits YOU but not your customers. I have to divide the portions anyway, and then I get the freezer burn. I do all the clean up, and btw I don't use recyclables when I freeze the portions again. I also end up with food thawed and freezed again and thawed again.

        Overall, I am happy that RadCat is not the only one company producing holistic raw food for cats. Do your research and good luck!

          Comments about Rad Cat Raw Cat Food Diet:

          Dear Rad Cat, my mommy is typing this for me I try,but my paws don't do the best job. I am a 3 month old Sphynx kitten and my mommy has feed me only Rad cat and a very expensive dry food even though it contains things my mom does not want me to eat, but she is concerned about my not having free choice when she is gone being a nurse for 12 hour at a time. When my mom picked me up from the breeder I was 11 weeks old and only weighed 2 lb's the weight of a 8 week old kitten. My mom and Rad cat put 1 lb on me in less than a week. My mom was going to make her own, but our veterinarian gave us some Rad cat samples and boy are we glad she did. So far I have had Turkey, Chicken, and Lamb, my favorite is the Lamb so far, we will be trying the rest soon. My mom only gives me the best and thinks all kitties should have the same. Sincerely Krissy Kitty

          Two of my 4 cats liked; two hated it. Of the two feral brothers, one loved it and one hated it. Go figure. The cat for whom I bought it has IBS and hated it. By hated, I mean thoroughly despised it. She would rather starve herself. I tried putting a tiny bit in with the food she liked, but no luck. I wish the company had a trial package with small samples of all their flavors.

            Comments about Rad Cat Raw Cat Food Diet:

            Our Henry, a 9.5 YO male indoor cat had some of the worst ieosinophil granuloma complex (horrible skin condition from allergies) our vet ever saw. We transitioned he and our two female cats to only raw, and about 1/5 canned diet. In combo with HESKA drops (immunotherapy to correct Henry's allergies to dust/storage mites and many plants), we finally committed to ONLY Rad Cat and occasionally one other raw brand. Henry's suffering has ended. Our girl kitties look good and their check-ups are good. They almost never vomit up the Rad Cat like the sometimes do the canned wet food. Although we have set aside a special plastic tub in our kitchen sink on the one side to soak the Rad Cat dirty plates, and we must sterilize them in the machine separately b/c it is raw food, and it is messy and expensive, I feel it is a good value compared to all of the later-on in life expenses of feeding cats dry, commercial, frankly, unhealthy foods. So we are actually SAVING money.

              Comments about Rad Cat Raw Cat Food Diet:

              We cannot say enough about the benefits of rad cat. Our little tortoise Cali had terminal illness, but Rad Cat easily added 12 to 18 months or more to her life. She had become extremely finnicky and had lost quite a bit of weight. After being on Rad cat for just a week, she began to gain weight, seemed more energetic and purred more :))

              Even though it was expensive, it was worth every penny! Certainly cheaper than vet bills. We would highly recommend without reservation. If you are on the fence, simply give it a try. You won't go back and your cat will thank you!

              Comments about Rad Cat Raw Cat Food Diet:

              My cat struggled with chronic bladder infections for a couple of years even after going on what the vet recommended, prescription canned abused pig food. It's been over a year now on RAD cat food and absolutely no symptoms! I am supplementing with a herb from a holistic vet however I believe the food was the cause in the first place. It's such a relief to me and my love kitty. The only negative is that it costs so much because they increased the shipping to NH by $50 almost unaffordable but I will pay to avoid a suffering child!
