I fed raw for a while. Some cats are HARD and some are easy. For one of mine he never switched (though he has changed a lot with age and I bet I could switch him now). For my other cat it just took mixing little bits of raw with his favorite snack food (pre cooked chickens from stop and shop) and slowly increasing the size of the raw bits. I hear kittens are easy.

The biggest thing to remember with cats is that they are limited in what bones they can consume. Chicken wings are the biggest most can handle, even then some can't do biggest section (humerus equivalent). Also remember for taurine dark meat is better than white meat, so thighs are better than breasts. I don't remember my menu, I just know I fed 2% of his body weight and fed 80% meat, 10% bone, 5% liver, 5% other organ (I could only get kidney). I'd measure that out each week then divide it up into daily portions. There is a cat forum with an active raw section I know of if you'd like to know more.
