Freeze-dried necks

#3
The cat CRAP raw feeding Facebook group has people that say to be careful not to feed too much neck tissue and chicken neck bone. Either freeze dried as a treat, or in a raw recipe as a source of bone. Supposedly it can contain enough thyroid to create problems. I don’t know how much is too much, or how likely this is to be a problem, but as HB’s most favourite thing in the whole world is freeze dried chicken necks, I use blackberry clippers to cut them into small sections, and try to save them for very special treats. For general rewards and clicker training I try to have alternatives on hand. Turkey neck bones seem pretty heavy and I would think most cats would have difficulty eating these? But chicken neck bones seem to be a nice and wonderfully crunchy treat.

I was thinking of duck necks, as they are smaller than turkey. Zazu isn’t super enthused about chicken, so those are out, lol. I was thinking it would be a special treat for her once in awhile, or as you suggested, cut into smaller chunks more often.

I also cut my freezer dried chicken necks into two or more pieces. My boy starts out playing with them; then realizes they are edible.

That must be entertaining to watch! Zazu is the opposite, I only know she’s full when she starts playing with her food instead of eating it.
