Anyone who raw feeds their four legged kids, knows about Raw Feeding Miami!! And if they don't, they're missing out! 

Why? We'll get into that in a minute! 

We have always been great fans of RFM, and have always wanted to try their products - well, for our cats to try them, that is. 

Raw Feeding Miami is a company that chooses carefully their ingredients so they can be " grass-fed, hormone and antibiotic free, all natural, or USDA grade "

They also have a wide variety of products, which is very important for a balanced raw diet. Not only that, but a special variety of supplements we haven't seen anywhere else. 

In addition to that they've got some really neat bulk packs, as well as starter packs for beginners - which is really awesome and helpful when you first start raw feeding. 

Before we get into the goodies, we would like to point out RFM's presentation of their products and company overall. 

Something that really is important to us is feeling a sense of closeness and transparency when dealing with people or companies, especially sources that we order our cats' food from.

RFM definitely earned our trust through their honest, well-written story on their website; sharing their personal experience and reasoning behind the foundation of their company. Through their very professional presentation, it seems they have invested a lot of time to make a beautiful and well working website. Also, they have shared a lot of articles to help guide beginners and explain a little about the whole raw diet idea. All this makes for a very comprehensively positive experience.

Plus, they are partners with one of the most important raw feeding websites we know - one we used personally as a guide to learn how to feed raw responsibly. 

Summary:

  • Great and professional presentation 
  • Helpful information on their website
  • Promising vision for their products 

Let's see if their products are indeed what RFM claimed them to be. Just as importantly, how will their final condition be after two days of travel? And last - we will let the real, picky, and furry judges decide in the end. 


Let's open up our long-awaited raw-some RFM package! 

Yes, that was pretty much the most exciting thing that happened that day, or week..or month!

Brrr! After not being able to feel our fingers, or knuckles, we can confirm that the packages have arrived safely, and were frozen rock hard! Wow! It actually had some frost on them, which we haven't seen before. 

Everything was packed in together nicely. The box had zero damage and it was simply thrilling when it arrived. 

There was no single item that was thawed out, or with any tears. Really impressed by their condition. It was delivered on time as well.


Let's take a more thorough look at each product, and review RFM's description of them.

Chicken grinds:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $3.75 (1 pound)

  • RFM's raw chicken blend
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free. Not enhanced
  • Our grinds are made following the 80/10/10 whole prey ratio
  • This item can be fed as a meal
  • Ideal for small breeds, cats, and dogs who try to swallow things whole
  • Contains ground up chicken: meat, bone, heart, liver, kidney
  • Cat owners are recommended to add a nutritional supplement such as Alnutrin
  • This listing is available in 2.5 LBS and 1 LB bags

First of all, let's point out that RFM uses the correct feeding ratio on this product. A balanced feeding ratio of 80/10/10, which is one of the most important factors when purchasing a product like this. For example, in Greece, raw feeding companies (that we have encountered) do not know / have not studied how to responsibly feed a balanced raw diet and therefor their ratios are out of line, and extremely dangerous for your pets. RFM has done their research. 

Furthermore, since it contains all the other important organs of the chicken, and since you don't have to buy them separately, the price is extremely acceptable. Not to mention, if you have a picky cat that doesn't want to eat the bone, it is already ground up in here. Also, it's a very fast and convenient way to feed raw. All in one package that is sealed very well, and every inch of it is filled up with raw. 


DUCK GIZZARDS:

RFM's Description of product 

Price: $22.79 (5 pounds)

  • Whole duck gizzards
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free.  Not enhanced
  • Should be fed as boneless, as 80% of the diet
  • Already cleaned out
  • Very meaty, considered red meat
  • Smaller in size, great for all sized pets
  • This listing is for 5 LBS of product

This one is a heavy fella! Filled up with duck gizzards that's gonna last you for some time! Hormone and antibiotic free is always a pleasant thing to read – it is important to be able to feed clean meats to your animals, and since it is not always possible to afford organic products, RFM helps with their strict selection. 

A quick look through the frosty package, you can definitely see an intense red color poking out. 

Again, RFM's directions of feeding this product is spot on. 

So it's about $4.56 a pound, which compared to other companies is much cheaper, and some don't even carry it.  


DEHYDRATED RABBIT FEET & EARS:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $8.00 (3 ounces)

  • Dehydrated rabbit feet and ears
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free.  Not enhanced
  • Completely natural with no preservatives
  • Hair is still intact
  • Each bag has a mix of ears and feet
  • This listing is for 3 ounces of product

This product was cleverly packaged. It wasn't together with the frozen products, but they laid it on top of the plastic bags – since it didn't need to be kept cold. 

We have done some research and compared prices. Indeed, RFM's dehydrated rabbit feet & ears product is pricier than the rest we found and compared with. However; this bag includes ears as well and is again, hormone and antibiotic free with no preservatives. 

From what we see, the fur looks really clean, and everything feels well preserved. 

We are especially excited about this product!


TURKEY HEARTS:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $4.95 (2.5 pounds)

  • Raw Turkey Hearts
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free. Not enhanced
  • Should be fed as boneless, as 10% of the diet
  • Great substitute for pill pockets! 
  • Loaded with natural taurine, ideal for felines
  • Customer favorite!
  • This listing is for 2.5 LBS of product

The most important factor to point out here, is that again they have done their research. It is a very nutritious meat and extremely important for cats, like RFM states as well. 

The price is very good compared to other companies. 

This too arrived well frozen. 


GROUND BEEF LUNG:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $6.00 (2.5 pounds)

  • RFM's raw ground beef lung
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free. Not enhanced
  • Should be fed as boneless, as 80% of the diet
  • Nice alternative to ground beef
  • Ideal for picky eaters
  • Contains ground up boneless beef lungs
  • This listing is for 2.5 LBS of product

We are thrilled to give our cats a taste of this! Fancy, fancy, fancy – package has a different design than the rest. 

Price is also very appropriate. Again, great and accurate recommendation on the feeding ratio. Another healthy source with no antibiotics or hormones. 

The texture seems really nice, with deep red natural coloring. 


TURKEY LIVER:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $4.60 (2.5 pounds)

  • Whole pieces of turkey liver
  • Should be fed as organ, as 5% of the diet
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free
  • Sourced in NC
  • Not enhanced
  • This listing is for 2.5 LBS of product

We cannot see so much yet, since it is still frosty and frozen solid! 

It sounds very promising, again with no additives. Correct recommended feeding ratio. 

Compared to others, price is very competitive. 

Excited to take a closer look later on! 

Package perfectly sealed with no leaks. 


TURKEY GRINDS:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $4.75 (1 pound)

  • RFM's raw turkey blend
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free. Not enhanced
  • Our grinds are made following the 80/10/10 prey model ratio
  • This item can be fed as a meal
  • Loaded with natural taurine
  • Ideal for small breeds, cats, and dogs who swallow things whole
  • Cat owners are recommended to add a nutritional supplement such as Alnutrin
  • Contains ground up turkey: bone, thighs, heart, liver
  • This listing is for 1 LB and 2.5 LBS of product

We can't get over of how neatly packaged this product is, and what a beautiful color the meat has! 

Again, correct prey model ratio, and something that we think is pretty cool; the selection of meat parts. Instead of adding a cheaper source of muscle meat, they choose to add thighs which is high in taurine – perfect for those feline fluffs. That's dedication right there, and no cutting corners! Good job on that one! 

We compared other turkey grinds products, and realized that not many companies carry this in particular - and the ones who do have added more bone variety, no muscle meat, and only organs, so that the ratio is out of balance. 

No complaints about the price. Very fair.  

Package arrived frozen and with no damage. 


TURKEY THIGHS:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $10.85 (2.5 pounds)

  • Boneless turkey thighs
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free.  Not enhanced
  • Should be fed as boneless, as 80% of the diet
  • High in taurine and great for cats & kittens
  • Easy to digest, great beginner item
  • This listing is for 2.5 LBS of product

Speaking of turkey thighs! Look at that fantastic package or rawliciousness!! Wow! It might be frozen, but we can clearly see how fresh and great quality the meat is!

Like mentioned before, turkey thighs are high in taurine and RFM knows that too, so it confirms the reason why they choose to put thighs in most of their grinds. 

Not too worried about this price either. Yes, it is slightly more expensive compared to chicken thighs – but personally, we can't get this locally, so we are thankful to have this product through RFM, no matter the price. 


CHICKEN TRIMS: 

RFM's Description of product

Price: $4.85 (2.5 pounds)

  • Boneless pieces of chicken meat
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free.  Not enhanced
  • Should be fed as boneless, as 80% of the diet
  • Locally sourced in FL
  • Some batches can have some fatty pieces
  • Easy to feed, no cutting required
  • This listing is for 2.5 LBS of product

What are chicken trims?? If we judge by its color, we would say boneless pieces of chicken breast meat. It is relatively cheap and the meat has a nice color to it. The only negative issue for us personally, we always try to feed our cats darker meats for higher intake of taurine, and usually never get chicken breast for them, since we don't use any supplements. 

However; that doesn't mean there is something wrong with that product – just a slight worry of non experienced people thinking it is safe or appropriate to only feed this product since it is cheaper than other meat varieties would be – which pets definitely need. 

Can't wait for us to open this one up and write more about it!


GROUND SALMON:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $11.50 (2.5 pounds)

  • Ground boneless salmon meat
  • Should be fed as boneless, as 80% of the diet
  • Feed in moderation, very rich
  • Wild-caught from Alaska
  • Not enhanced
  • Replaces fish oil pumps for fresh omega 3's
  • This listing is for 2.5 LBS of product

Boneless salmon meat? Wild-caught in ALASKA?? Replaces fish oil pumps??? That's right up our alley!! Many of you who read our raw meal posts, know we do not use supplements at all. We have tried Salmon oil before, but weren't happy with it. 

The biggest issue here in Arkansas is to find wild-caught salmon from a good source. There's nowhere to get it locally! 

So this sounds extremely promising for a fantastic price!

Also, accurate warning about feeding in moderation due to richness of its meat.  

Package arrived frozen with no damage. 


RABBIT BONES:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $15.50 (2.5 pounds)

  • Raw rabbit spines and ribs
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free.  Not enhanced
  • Should be fed as bone, as 10% of the diet
  • Soft, pliable bones, easy to chew through
  • Some batches can be fattier than others
  • This listing is for 2.5 LBS of product

We are pretty excited about this one! Since we choose to feed our cats (and dogs...and ferrets) chunks of meat, and whole pieces of bone instead of ground up, this is a nice change for them. Cats honestly need a lot of variety, or sometimes they will get tired of the same old things you give them. However, you cannot always find the right bones for felines at the local super market. This is a great alternative, which is also very affordable. 

Again, seems to be very high quality – great selection of bone parts, correct direction of feeding. RFM has really a wide variety of rabbit products, which is really neat. Rabbit is one of our cats' favorites, and we are excited to see what they think about this. 


DUCK GRINDS:

RFM's Description of product

Price: $5.80 (1 pound)

  • RFM's raw duck blend
  • Hormone & Antibiotic free. Not enhanced
  • Our grinds are made following the 80/10/10 whole prey ratio
  • This item can be fed as a meal
  • Ideal for small breeds, cats, and dogs who swallow things whole
  • Cat owners are recommended to add a nutritional supplement such as Alnutrin
  • Contains ground up duck: meat, bone, heart, liver
  • This listing is for 1 LB or 2.5 LBS of product

...and the last of our products! 

Very similar to the previous grinds, so our review on them applies to this one as well. Price is higher than the chicken and turkey thighs, which is logical. 


TIME TO RAW-VIEW!

Be warned! These images were shot in a more "food-styled" and graphic manner than the previous photos! Our excitement turned into creativity! 

CHICKEN GRINDS

Alright folks! Check out that nice texture and great color! We love the fact that you can still see individual pieces in the grinds, and that it is not completely mush! The meat doesn't have any bad smell, it is easy to squeeze out of the package and the package doesn't get too messy either. 

It seems to be really high quality, and our cats definitely approved. 

Wooden spoons for decoration.


DUCK GIZZARDS

Extremely clean pieces with nice red color – huge as well! Some are fattier than others – which is awesome, since the local chicken gizzards we used to get are extremely lean and our cats despise them! Really love the fact that the gizzards are already cleaned out which saves time when food preparing. 

Again, no foul smell, looks very fresh, intense red color, solid pieces, and a lot of meat for the price. 

Knife for decoration.


DEHYDRATED RABBIT FEET & EARS

Every cat owner should ABSOLUTELY order these right about NOW! The cats LOVE these dehydrated rabbit feet and ears!!! We have our Rosie-Posie right now carrying one through the whole house, for two hours now. Do your cat a favor, and click the order button. 

As for the actual product, it is very interesting how it feels. The inside of the feet is hard, yet the outside is fluffy and clean. Ears are dry and hard, like rawhide. 

Extremely impressed and happy with this product. Thank you RFM! You made all our cats' dreams come true! They now can say, they have a lucky rabbit foot. 

Faux-fur throw for decoration. 


TURKEY HEARTS

Rawfeeding_Miami_table_2048_1.JPG

Do we need to say anything? Look for yourself. Size and solid shape of heart, fantastic color – definitely a winner! 

Our cats really loved this product. They didn't leave one bite on their bowl, and it was the first thing they attacked. 

Paper for decoration.


GROUND BEEF LUNG

This product is a little different than the other grinds – which was an experience!  It has a very interesting slimy texture, (not mushy) – you can still see pieces of the meat. It also has a distinguishing smell which we assume that is what makes picky eaters enjoy this. And it has a beautiful color that indicates good quality of meat and freshness. 

It is definitely a more afforadable way to feed a protein of red meat to your cats, and we definitely recommend this product to our fellow cat/dog owners. 

Bones are just for the purpose of decoration in this picture. RFM doesn't include them in this displayed product. 


TURKEY LIVER

We are definitely digging all the turkey products. The meat just seems to be so much "intense" (in a good way) than the other poultry products. 

When we did these photos of the product, bags were still semi-frozen. When we opened the turkey liver package and tried to grab some livers to display, instead of them breaking apart – like chicken livers do for example – most of them broke as whole pieces.

What to say? Really nice liver pieces, none of them had any bad color, nor were they mushed. As you can see, the pieces are literally shining freshness! Rosie is excited as well! It was actually a challenge to hold her back, so she doesn't eat them! (P.S. do not feed so much liver as displayed at a time)

White bowl for decoration. 


TURKEY GRINDS

Have you ever visited a French or German restaurant and ordered "steak tartare" ? Well, if we were to rename this product, it would be "turkey tartare" – it simply looks amazing! 

Kinda scary when the ground meat for your pets looks better than the store bought version intended for humans! 

Really impressed with these products so far. 

Parsley and paper for decoration.


TURKEY THIGHS

Please do us a favor and look up "Raw Turkey Thighs" on our dear friend Google, and just compare the results to what we see here. 

We did not change the colors of this product! RFM is cracking us up! Can you guys sell products for human consumption as well? 

Just really impressed with the quality of this one especially – kinda shocked when we took it out of the bag. 

Great sized thighs, no bad smell, solid heavy pieces that will make a great meal filled up with taurine, for our feline friends. 

Slate piece and Rosie Posie tail for decoration. 


CHICKEN TRIMS

What a convenient way to feed chicken to the fluffs! For those of us who feed chunks of meat to our cats, this is simply brilliant and very helpful! 

The pieces are like small sized chicken tenderloins. This package had little fat in it, which is great since most of it was actual meat instead of fat. 

In this picture, the meat is semi-frozen and therefor you see some grainy texture. When it thawed out, the pieces were like you'd imagine when buying a chicken breast, and cut it up. 

Again, the only negative remark for us, is that we don't personally feed light meat, because we think darker meat is better. Overall though, the product is of great quality, and would also be a great and easier way for beginners to transition their pet to raw with this product. 

Scissors and metal container for decoration.


GROUND SALMON

Have your cats ever tried ground Sashimi? Mango did, and he is a loyal fan now!

In all honesty, it is a great way to keep in the freezer, take it out for meal prep, and it will thaw out on the top first so you can scoop it out and put it back in the freezer. Some might not agree with this method, but we do that all the time and it is very convenient, and much easier dealing with this than the actual salmon pieces that take a longer time to thaw out. 

The product has a funny fishy texture (as expected) it includes the gray pieces, which we really like – they are rich in omega 3's – doesn't smell fishy in a bad way, and overall looks very pleasant and fresh. 

Definitely recommend this product! 

Parsley and plate for decoration. 


RABBIT BONES

These rabbit bones, we were glad to notice, have a TON of meat on them! That is also why it was difficult to separate them when semi-frozen. So, you kinda get bones and meat as well in this product, which is very cool and makes the price much more accepting. 

Again, the meat has a really nice color. Pieces are large, and when thawed out, easy to separate. 

Cats are extremely excited about this particular product, and we are too. Definitely a staple from now on. 

Cleaver for decoration. 


DUCK GRINDS

We really really love the fact that their grinds still have a nice texture and are not completely soup! Our cats definitely prefer a nice texture, or else they won't even touch it. So, we're really happy about that. 

It is also not messy at all, and resembles a lot the ground meat you buy at the local store. The handling of it is very easy and it doesn't stick to your fingers as much. 

It doesn't have any foul smell, looks very fresh, and it is a handy product to have in the freezer for a fast breakfast or dinner. 

We definitely recommend this product as well. 


All good things come to an end, and this was our last product to review! Hopefully RFM will send us some more! Haha


CONCLUSION

In all honesty, we couldn't be more happy with RFM's products. This review was genuine and as much as we tried to look for any negative remarks to make, there simply were none to be had, and we think this is very important when choosing a raw feeding company to order your products from. 

We have researched raw feeding for years now, and more intensely when we started our cattery here in the States. In almost every article we read, we would come across Raw Feeding Miami, and there is a good reason why. 

We believe they have invested a ton of time in good presentation, dedicated marketing, and to find safe and reputable sources to import their meats from. 

Also, we've had some communication with the owner, Carla, and she has been really wonderful to work with. She quickly sent us the products after it was agreed to do to real review of them, and ever since, she has been patient for us to complete this project. 

It was really a fun experience, and RFM definitely gained a loyal customer.
