that only feeds the boys for a month

Start to finish, it takes about 3 hours. That was after deboning half the meat, parcooking the boneless meat, making the slurry, grinding some of the boneless meat, cutting up half the boneless meat with the scissors, opening up packages of bone in meat plus organs, and SQUISH with gloves.

Consult with Dr. Pierson from Catinfo.org

We’re going to consult with Dr. Pierson
