    Questions Re: Meat Grinder & Bones

    Thanks for the replies. I've read all popular literature including Dr. Pierson's. I hear people are grinding bones in a blender called Vitamix, so might consider that. They are pricey though.

    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...

    Diatomaceous Earth

    I want to prevent worms, fleas and ticks naturally without the use of chemicals. I've read DE (food grade) is effective and want to try on my kitties. What dosage is recommended? I read 2 tsp a day but wanted to make sure. For fleas and ticks, I will try neem leaf extract. If you know other...

    Fearless, Stupid Cat....

    Yes, I agree. I can't imagine losing my beloved cats after losing my own mom in a traffic accident... I once took them to our city apartment and they became kinda depressed, so I will find ways to keep them occupied and busy inside the house.

    Fearless, Stupid Cat....

    Yes, I tried walking them on a harness and leash and they were adamant not to move an inch.... or go the opposite ways deliberately, so I couldn't walk them together. I'm thinking about covering the entire backyard/front yard in mesh...

    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 didn’t know that dark meat had more protein! Yes, I should start rotating at some point, though our kitties seem to be content with only thigh meat for now. I’ll try rabbit and quail as well.

    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...

    New Brand Of Food - Anyone Tried It?

    We just bought 3 flavors (100% natural salmon, mackerel, and tuna) to use as a treat because purebites isn't readily available around here. What makes these Applaws treats different from human grade fish we eat? It's packaged, so I guess it's for convenience? I'm not a big fan of feeding fish on...

    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...

    Where To Apply Sunscreen?

    Thanks for the reply! We live in Australia where UV is said to be harsher and our kitties love going out in the backyard, so just as a precaution I decided to apply sunscreen on them even tho their coat is dark. We are using Dr Zoo's Zinc Free Natural Sun Cream. FiltaBac is also available here...

    Where To Apply Sunscreen?

    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?

    How Much Hearts?

    Oh, good :) And I was incorrect in calculating % of livers and hearts in the mainstream online recipes in my original post. Hearts is actually 15% of the diet (or 20% of muscle meat) and livers 8%. I just made food with 7% bones, 5% livers, 15% hearts and 68% meat. Hope this mix will keep their...

    Raw Food And Urinary Problems?

    I also got harnesses for them but they don't really go far when they are leashed! As far as we know, there is no other cat invading our garden but you never know. Maybe other cats come in while we are sleeping... we have possums tho. Our kitties climbed a tree and up there I spotted a possum...

    Raw Food And Urinary Problems?

    I've been using this one Oz-Pet Animal Litter and Bedding since they were 3 months old. They have always used it and shared it without any fuss. In fact it looks so comical and cute that they sit in the same litter tray together. Maybe sharing the same litter suddenly started bothering them...
