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 […]

Cats gotta eat

I just re-ordered the rabbit from Hare Today for the boys’ food this month. I also went poking around their website a bit more. I knew they sold guinea pig but I didn’t know too much about it. Today I read how they are raised and at what weights they are sold. The smallest being […]

Hare Today

They have so many meats for your pets but we usually buy 7- 2 lb chubs of fine grind bone in ground rabbit per month to mix with our supermarket turkey thighs for the boys.

update from the surgeon

Tommy’s day on Friday was a tough one. I got up and fed him a half serving and gave him a dramamine. A half hour or so later we put him in the carrier. He was thrashing about and going wild (I’ve never seen him like this) and got the cone off in the carrier […]

2 more weeks

After Tommy got his cone off, he would make himself bleed while grooming. He wasn’t particularly rough with his nethers, but it was still sensitive. I left a message for the surgeon and a day or two later he called me back. Leave his cone on for two more weeks until his 1 mo checkup. […]

The raw food

things happening

I woke up today, not wanting to leave the bed. Ate a pancake, drank some coffee. Cleaned the guinea pig pen. Clipped the 5 girls’ nails. Refilled the hay and gave them dandelion greens and italian parsley. Sifted out the cat litter boxes. Took the trash out. Had guinea pigs screaming at me again. Gave […]

NEXT BATCH OF RAW

I’ve got to do a lower calorie formulation. Eggs were optional so at 700+ calories, those are going to be left out. Skin from the thighs is optional so I’m going to cut out that. It was about 500 calories. Currently I’m pulling back portions on the two boys. Tommy is up a half a […]

dietary changes

Tommy has been doing super well since a day or two out of the hospital. I’ve had he and his roommate on pre-made raw food and canned food so that he gets fluids in him throughout the day for his urinary health, instead of binging a few times at the water fountain and then peeing […]

Emergency – Tommy Gargoyle

I’d noticed my cat straining in the litter box around 11am Tuesday morning. I thought he was constipated so I broke out the canned food and olive oil. He kept going into the litter box trying so hard and so often that he’d actually laid outside of the box napping there between bouts. I made […]
