Murphy : 4 year old guinea pig

I realized I hadn’t given any update for March. Her blood came back and appeared negative for lymphoma. Her weight went up, then back down, and we went to the local vet and she was put on antibiotics because she was doing this weird huffing. They wanted to do a few tests, but that would […]

#BasePaws DNA CatKit update #8 – IMAGE HEAVY

I tried to think of a few ways to present the new version of the report, but a PDF would be most useful. I’m just not sure if I know how to put PDF files on here, so I printed out the reports for both Princess Yue Pants and Tommy Gargoyle, and adjusted the photos. […]

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 […]

Waiting for my restock notification from Hare-Today

This company has been supplying me my rabbit for our home made raw food since December 2016. The last order I placed was the end of June and I just used the last of it a week ago. I need to put in a new order, but we made some changes to the formula so […]
