Hope everyone doing alright! Seb had to visit the vets the morning to start his vacs again (because of an infection last time that prevented him getting his second injection) and the Vet said she was very happy with him and he was doing very well although she said he is starting to put on a bit of a belly! This came as a surprise to me - looking at him now I guess I can kind of see it but I have been told by various sources to give kittens as much raw as they want to eat. I don't leave food out for him all the time but I top up his plate till he walks away for his mealtimes (4 times a day). Should I be regulating his intake this early? He is only 16 weeks old - the last time I weighed him a few days ago he weighed just under 2 kilos. I'm especially surprised because Seb doesn't eat nearly as much as some other kittens who I have heard - he manages probably about 150 grams of raw a day - we play with him constantly and he's very active so I am slightly surprised! Also - I did end up mentioning to the vet that Seb was being fed raw and whilst she didn't disapprove, she did mention that there is significant risk with raw re salmonella and other bacterial infections. I had previously brushed this aside but some papers that I read today have made me start questioning whether raw really is safe, even if it is nutritionally sound. For people who do feed raw at the moment - I've been feeding seb chicken only and have tried him with a few chunks of pork to see if they're alright with him. When making batches using meat like pork, or beef ,what do you use for bone content? Do you use bone meal or add a chicken carcass to the mix? (also completely unrelated... but when should we start to think about neutering? Is it likely to become a problem if our vet isn't neutering at the moment?) Sorry for the long post - can send pics if people want to see my boy in return! Thanks!
