Do Cats Really Like Fish?

Ocean eating Primal sardine grind

Do Cats Really Like FishDo cats really like fish? I ask this question because it came up at our house this past week. The answer to this question in our house is, it depends.Primal Sardine Grind

Mom got us some Primal sardine grind at our local store where she gets our raw meat. Since we love an occasional treat of tuna, she thought we would love this. Ocean dove right into it and licked his plate clean. Echo and I weren’t so sure. I licked it a little and Echo (Mr. Picky) just walked away. Now mind you, this was totally different from what we are used to eating. It smelled different and had a much different texture. And you know we cats do not like change.

Raw Food Diet — Easier than You Think!

My raw food diet is paw licking good!

My raw food diet is paw licking good!As you may know, mom has fed us a raw food diet for several years now. We posted the diet and how to make it a few weeks ago.

The process is really very much the same.Supplements for a raw food diet

We come running from wherever we are in the house when the chicken comes out of the … Continue reading

Waste Not, Want Not

C&O with chicken treatsWhen mom first started making us raw food*, she left all the skin on the chicken. After a few months of eating this delicious concoction, we all started getting a little fluffy, as mom called it. A review of the website that the recipe came from said to remove some of the skin from the chicken if that happened.

Back then, mom was making 30+ pounds of food at a time. So by the time she removed about a third of the skin, that was a lot of skin. She hated to see it go to waste but didn’t know what she could do with it. She thought about the dogs she had as pet sitting clients and wondered if she could … Continue reading
