CatCentric hosts one of the largest, most active groups of its kind on Facebook. Created in January of 2014, the group has grown phenomenally fast and as of this writing boasts nearly 5,000 members. It’s managed by some of the most compassionate, knowledgeable ladies I’ve ever met and together, we’ve created a safe place where cat owners and guardians can share their experiences and offer help and support to one another on topics from nutrition to general care to behavior.
Every cat lover – regardless of background or beliefs – is welcome in the CatCentric Community. The only requirement for joining is that you, too, love cats. 🙂

What is My Budget for Raw Food? – There are two components to determining how much it will cost to feed raw: 1) the cost per pound, and 2) the amount your cat(s) need to eat. When eating 100% raw, most raw feeders find that due to the high bioavailability (and quality) of the raw food, they need to feed their cats 10% – 30% less food compared to volumes of canned. This file provides an easy-to-read conversion of canned food into cost per pound to help you understand your budget for raw food. It doesn’t consider the cost-savings you will likely experience due to needing to feed less food compared to canned.
