Do Not Operate Heavy Machinery: made raw cat food today

I’ve been doing this for almost two years, so you’d thing I would know one small detail: Which way does the blade go on the meat grinder? I buy rabbit already ground with bone and organs. I end up cutting up half my turkey thighs, and the other half of my turkey thighs go through […]

My guinea pigs are falling apart

I realized I last discussed about Lily’s passing, but I haven’t updated on Murphy other than her temperament. My last guinea pig, Murphy (Lily’s daughter), ended up breaking a tooth on something. Now, she has malocclusion, and gets her dental done on Monday. Everything needs trimmed under anesthesia from her molars to her incisors. Again […]

Tommy Gargoyle – The weight struggles with my cat

When Tommy was a young man, his mother overdid it and let him eat all the time, and balloon to 21 lbs. That was me. I love this guy, and I didn’t know better. We got his measurements taken at the vet’s office and they told me he was honestly a 13.1 lb cat underneath. […]

It’s all going to work out

I hit a snag. The timing of my running out of home made cat food for the boys is going to coincide with Thanksgiving. The downstairs fridge will not be able to accommodate thawing out 18 lbs of meat, a turkey, and then housing leftovers. Bummer. Making my food is the cheapest way to get […]

I had to find out the hard way

Imagine my surprise to find out, when I weighed my cats today, after two weeks have gone by, that one guy is down almost 5 ounces. My first thought wasn’t that my cat was ill, but that maybe with the stress his dad has been under, he’s missed meals or something. Stewart is 13 lb […]

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. I was about to move […]

Special needs

When I admitted my cats were fat, years ago, I thought I could fix it and that they would go onto have regular lives again, but life gets in the way. We had a problem  with Tommy keeping weight on months after his surgery. How can I go from a chronically fat lard bub to […]
