PMR is designed to provide family cats with a homemade diet that replicates the diet of a wild feline without requiring the pet to hunt and kill wild prey while eliminating all processed foods and grains. A complete PMR diet for cats consist of 84% muscle meat, 6% raw edible bone, 5% liver, and 5% other organs in order to achieve optimal balance.
Frankenprey is another term used for raw feeders who follow ratio guidelines of PMR but feed a variety of different cuts of meats to complete their cat’s meal to correct guidelines. Meals can consist of multiple protein sources in a single feeding.
Some raw feeders give the whole animal, with pelt/feathers and innards intact, which is where the term “Prey Model Raw” came from. Feeding whole prey to your cat provides a perfect balance of muscle, bone, and organs.
It is optimal to feed whole cuts and/or whole prey to your cat to provide teeth cleaning benefits, higher taurine levels, and endorphin release. Feeding grinds does not provide teeth cleaning benefits and grinding exposes the natural taurine in the meat to oxygen which destroys the amino acid.
