    Questions Re: Meat Grinder & Bones

    Our meat grinder (TreSpade) suddenly died on us.... only after 1.5 year of very infrequent use, although it boasts 0.8HP, cost $1,000 and is made in Italy.... only 1 year warranty. I'm completely deflated and upset. We live in Australia and can't easily get our hands on reputable Tasin or Weston...

    Fearless, Stupid Cat....

    One of our 18-month-old cats Valentine isn't afraid of cars or neighbors and I fear she will be squashed by a car at some point if this behavior continues. They don't even move from the driveway when I'm driving off or coming home but that's probably because they know I'm aware of them. No...

    Nutritional Values Of Chicken Whole Legs Vs Thighs

    I just checked USDA Food Composition Database for nutritional values of chicken whole legs and thighs and discovered that the thigh meat alone contains more protein and less fat compared to the whole leg consisting of the thigh and drumstick. Granted I don't really know how to use these...

    Raw Chicken - Lean Or Regular?

    My two kittens have been on raw chicken diet (87:7:5:5). Two local farms supply certified organic meat and we as guardians recently compared the two chickens to see how they compared, although we didn't think we could tell the difference. Turns out one is lean without much fat while the other...

    I read you apply it on their nose and ears but.... should it be applied inside the tip of their ears or outside? I also applied it on the nose above their nostrils (pic attached). Am I doing this correctly?

    According to PMR diet, it is recommended to follow 84% muscle meat (incl. hearts), 6% raw edible bone, 5% liver, and 5% other organs. And then I look at popular recipes online and notice that hearts account for 20% of the entire diet, and 24% of muscle meat. I have no idea how much is ideal but...

    Raw Food And Urinary Problems?

    Our 6-month-old kitten (boy, neutered) suddenly started urinating on our beds about a week ago and since then he's done it almost every single day, twice on Sunday. He also did it right in front of us. Now we close all the bedroom doors, although they (he has a sister who is the same age) always...

    Selective Eater (raw)

    I've started giving my almost-6-month-old kittens raw food two weeks ago. I made the first batch with fresh organic, pastured chicken, organs and eggs from the same farm. I was about to run out of the food, so as a temporary measure I went to a local supermarket's butcher to get chicken thighs...

    Help - Substitute Lite Morton Salt

    I need your brains... what's the daily requirement of iodine for cats? Since I've moved to Australia, I cannot find Morton's Lite Salt... so I've followed Dr Lisa Pierson's suggestion to use 3/4 regular iodine salt + 14 capsules of potassium citrate (99 mg each). The iodised sea salt I'm using...

    I'm one of those crazy cat ladies who wants to go on a road trip with her kitties. So far I see two types of car seat/cover. 1. folding individual seat...
