    How do you prepare your raw?

    Just made up some fresh batches today, even had some left over for the dogs! I like to freeze in muffin trays and then pop them out into an airtight container. One muffin is one meal. How do you prepare and store your raw meals?

    What scented candles do you all use that are safe for your cats? I love a good candle lit bath at the end of a long week, but unfortunately my cats are perverts and will scream to be let in with me. Actually I think they just enjoy the warm steam and company, they like to nap on the bath mat...

    Greenies and Teeth

    My cats love Greenies. Great, I thought, it will help clean their teeth for me! Except... one of my cats doesn't chew his Greenies. He just straight up swallows them. At first this concerned me cause it could be a choking hazard. But it also concerned me that the Greenies can have no effect on...
