My cat with the thyroid problem (named MadMax) had readings so high they were off the charts. We had him from a kitten, so knew all his story and we were fully aware of his "character". He was fine with us unlike Rocco, but like Rocco, Max was hard to feed. He would cry for food constantly, but...
I put it in a plastic takeaway container with a lid. No water got in as I was warming it up.
Everything that I got today was from Kiezebrink, a specialist in raw meats for animal food.
Bad! Because you are breeding your mice it might not be such a shock to you like it was for me. I was...
I have shoved it all into the freezer except 2 portions. 1 of which is the other half of the mouse meat chub - no prizes for guessing where that is going tomorrow!
The other is a portion of minced day old chicks. Please tell me now if that is another one to be wary of.
I really think they should put a warning on the mouse product on their website. Lol.
I am super impressed with them too. The variety on offer is amazing, and compared to other companies that offer minced cat food they are excellently priced.
As an example: Another company that I found, their...
I replied on the other thread too @lisahe.
When I first opened it the smell wasn't bad, very mild. But when I brought it up to room temperature that was when it got horrific.
Honestly I am traumatised by it. I am now really reluctant to do anything with any of the other meats.
I called the company and spoke to them about if I needed supplements (they also sell supplements with and without calcium).
They advised that as long as I provide a variety of protein sources as described on their website over a week then the chubs will be a complete diet. The proportions of...
It absolutely freaking reeks, it is utterly vile. I retched when disposing of the leftovers
I will never buy it again. Even Loki who is mad about raw meat ran away from it, but then again we always suspected that Moxxi ate his prey. We know that she loves mouse 🐭
I have just portioned up some of the raw meat that arrived today and prepared some of it for their first meal.
I chose the minced mouse, popped it in a tub with some chunks of raw chicken thigh and stood it in warm water.
When I took the lid off the smell was revolting, not in a "gone off"...
My very first order of raw, complete cat meat has arrived (frozen) in chubs. I excitedly unpacked it all, looked at it then repacked it because I realised that I didn't actually know what to do with it!
They are all single source protein chubs, so I will be feeding them in rotation for a...
Something else just occurred to me - did he get his thyroid checked? Cats with overactive thyroids can behave like this, including the picky eating.
I had a cat with an overactive thyroid and he was almost bi-polar with his behaviour.
He had radioactive iodine treatment and came home an...
I don't know if this helps with your anxiety at all, but this is my journey so far:
We used to have a BIG metal bowl of Iams that was available 24/7 to our 2 cats.
Loki (ginger boy) would nibble on them if he was hungry before mealtimes.
Moxxi (tortie girl) was a dry food fiend.
My family and I stayed with my Mum for 6 weeks in 2016, she had 3 cats, Rusty, Penny & Amy.
During this time Amy (an extremely anxious cat) learned to trust me enough so that she would come to me for attention, which was unheard of with her. My son formed a bond with Penny.
We then returned...
Would it be accurate to say that you are the main care giver for Rocco? Do you always feed and play with him or do you share these roles equally with your boyfriend? Does Rocco mostly go to you for attention?
You were working from home when he entered your life. You were at home 24/7 with Rocco...
I have a cat who would play-chase her tail, or so I thought!
Turns out that she stopped that behaviour when I expressed her anal sacs. The left one had filled up and was irritating her.
Did the vet check her anal sacs? Apparently it's a fairly common symptom.
