Diets of Cats and Dogs and Kibble?

Why I don’t feed my pets kibble?

“KIBBLE was invented to HUMAN convenience NOT for CATS AND DOGS”

What animals in the wild cook their food? I know not one. Processed and cooked foods are DEAD foods. Pets and people are and becoming sicker and sicker on this planet every day.

I advocate feeding your dog and cat a diet of variety in whole and raw living food.
