I was referred to you for information on natural cat food as I inquired about hair ball remedies. I was advised by one person butter on a cats paws. Would that not be a bad addition to a cat’s diet?
The best resources for natural catfood are: Richard Pitcairn’s, "Natural Health for Dogs and Cats", "The Complete Herbal Handbook for the Dog and Cat" by Juliette de Bairacli Levy and "The Barf Diet" by Ian Billinghurst. These authors cover the range of opinions regarding this topic. It has been my experience that once a cat is on a good, homemade diet they have little problem with hairballs.
