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 […]

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 […]

Teeth Cleaning Day

Tommy and Yue are 8 year old “almost” siblings. They’ve never had a dental cleaning. Tommy used to let me scale his teeth for tartar, but I lost the tool almost 2 years ago and shrugged it off. Eventually I bought another one, but his tartar had build up so much it would have been […]

We’ve been doing ice cube portions since we started, but last week we started to weigh out the ice cubes before serving, making sure they were 1 oz. I added some turkey skin back into […]

Recently, they’ve started another product line called Cleanprotein that seems to care a lot about your cat and their nutritional needs.

Still don’t have the hang of it

Tommy is not bottoming out on losing weight. Our scales says he’s very close to hitting 12 lbs flat, and he’s supposed to be at 13. We’re going to be consulting soon with Dr Pierson from Catinfo.org over how and what I am feeding him. His weight loss trickling isn’t alarming enough that he has […]

Trying to get the swing of this raw diet

Tommy and Stewart started raw 5 months ago. It was Nature’s Variety Raw Medallions in chicken. Then it was bone in rabbit with turkey and 20% skin and I think 10 egg yolks. Well they gained a pound. So I’ve been doing rabbit and turkey without skin and no egg yolks. I had Stewart at […]
