    To raw or not to raw... that is the question!

    So I've heard of feeding this raw diet... My sphynx are not on raw, I actually didn't know it existed when I got my first sphynx and she was healthy and growing so I never questioned her food. Furthermore, my vet never even suggested it! Obviously, I want whats best for my babies... Everyone...

    Day 1

    I've started the transition! Any small worries I had about Elfie not wanting to eat the raw pretty much went out the window! She looked at it, it's new after all, then at me. Sniffed it looked at me. Took the smallest little nibble possible .. I swear her little kitty eyes went wide and she...

    Whole prey?

    I'm going to pick up some frozen whole pretty for Odysseus tomorrow (rabbit, rat and baby lamb). I've never fed whole pretty before but he is already on raw food.

    Feeding raw & kibble at the same time

    I have seen people asking about this a few times here. I was doing some reading and found the following article which I found really interesting. Quite long but definitely worth a skim. This applies to feeding them at the same time (ie. mixing or free feeding dry while feeding raw)...

    I have finally decided to make the switch to raw for Bane and Fluffy. I have plenty of extra time and I have done lots of research. However, a lot of the blogs I have read seem to contradict themselves. Some say not to feed cow and pork, while others say to feed cow and pork. Then others say...

    Does Anyone Feed Bone-in Raw?

    After raiding this great forum for information I've ventured out there (*points to that nebulous space call the interwebs*) and read as much about raw diets for cats as my brain could handle. I'm presently of two minds: 1. Ground Raw w/ Chunks This seems simple enough. Use the ratio, pick...
