    We warm Uber's food a bit just so it's not straight from the fridge cold, not enough to really cook it. We're currently mixing the meat with some hot water but I feel like the heating isn't even and I'm not sure how warm the food is getting. Something I like about using the water is that it helps with mixing the vitamins into the meat. Does anyone have tips for getting a nice even warmth?

      Honestly they probably would not notice the difference, try it without warming it. :)

        We used to scoop his meals into a zip lock baggy and rest it in some warm water for a few minutes everyday to warm it up. The last week we thought why not try just giving it cold and save the hassle. Now we serve right from the fridge! Yoda doesn't seem to mind either way :)

          Thanks for the replies.

          I won't fret so much over the temp of the food now. We will still add the water though because he's used to it and he seems to like the ''broth".

            I have a deep bowl that the food bowls sit perfectly on top of (rim to rim). This means that I can feel the deep bowl with boiling hot water, and then set the more shallow bowl with cat food into the deeper bowl. I spend a very short amount of time pushing the food around and getting it heated throughout from the hot water in the deep bowl. For me, that works really well when they want heated food. I don't always keep their food, but in the winter time I do. I hope that makes sense. If not, let me know.

              @Xandria I do think I understand how you described it. So the bowls are situated like a double boiler?

                      My boys always used to love the raw food right out of the fridge:)
