I'm curious as to how much you are spending per day per cat feeding dry. I am able to feed raw for 70 cents/day per cat. If you didn't buy the chicken from Whole Foods, which charges about twice as much as do, say local ethnic butchers, then you could roll in for around half that.
I've heard they have to eat more dry than raw, as it isn't as high-octane of food. Also, cats don't drink enough water to compensate for dry food, grain/starch-free or not, and stand a very good chance of ending up with CRF.

If you can't adopt, then foster "bottle baby" shelter animal, to save their life. Contact your local pound for information. <http://www.laanimalservices.com/volunteer_fostercare.htm> If you can't bottle feed, foster an older animal, to save their life, and to free up cage space.
