Once again, on Catster, they're saying gizzards are a good source of taurine. If this is true, then I have no worries. Gizzards are pretty easy to get. Hearts are pretty hard to get. I was only able to feed one once, two or three years ago.
The kittens are currently on wet food, and I'm told they won't eat anything else. I was planning to do a gradually switch, anyway. Take a little of their food home, mix it with our food, put less and less of their food in with each meal, etc.
Do you think ground beef will be a good meat to start on? Just thinking it might be similar to what they're used to eating at the moment. And then introduce chicken thighs?
I'm also going to introduce kibble (I have Wellness Kitten), because she's going to need to be fed that when I have to leave her with a friend of our's while I'm on vacation later on this summer. Plus I'm still thinking I might go with partial raw for a bit, especially if I don't have organ sources totally sorted out before then. Because that is still somewhat of a problem. (I DID find what looks like some kidney from months ago in my freezer this evening, though.)
Should be getting the kitten in a little over a week from now. Excitement. I'm pretty sure we've decided which one to get now.
