The popularity of feeding raw food to carnivore pets is observed to be a constantly growing trend. Whereas an increasing amount of research is dedicated to raw feeding of dogs, little is known about raw feeding in cats. The present study reports the results of a survey that asked catowners about their sources of information, riskasessment, motivation, changes in the cats health after starting a raw diet and the rations fed. In addition, these were checked for nutritional adequacy.
