Maybe it is because 'raw' meat contains bacteria, (which is why you wash your hands after handling raw meat) and kibble not so much.?

I believe the idea of feeding both kibble and raw being bad has been debunked. For me, it was just easier to start focusing fully on the raw and forget the kibble. For others, mixing will make more sense. Neither way will hurt, I'm sure!

Us too, and thankfully they all made the cold-turkey switch no problem.

With BG I have to break things into super small bites. Also it depends on the protein she likes chicken LOL

I have read that lightly searing the meat at first can get the picky ones interested sometimes. You would then sear less and less until they take it raw.
