Oh and yes, keeping clean water available is very very important for cats. One other consideration is that cats need taurine--not an ingredient that is easy to supply with a raw diet I think. I've never had any issues with kibble fed cats and other than confrontations with other animals causing some minor injuries (and in one case a major abscess) mine have lived very very long lives. The youngest I've ever lost a cat to anything but major trauma was eye cancer and she was 18.
