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. If you would like to continue receiving this product please note that you may receive Rad Cat tubs that have split open during transit and that Only Natural Pet will not replace or refund such items. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 888-937-6677.
