Paula’s Raw Cat Food Links

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

So I realize that I have promised many people links to the raw diet we are now successfully feeding our cats and haven’t delivered! So, I am just going to post the links that I referenced while researching this. I’m not an expert on it by any means, and don’t feel confident enough to answer questions, but these links should answer any questions, or put you in touch with people who can.

For those who don’t know, we fed our cats “high quality” dry food and canned food for years, and thought we were doing right by them. They have had numerous health problems over the years, and when Dakota was diagnosed diabetic last year, I did some major research. I found that many people with diabetic cats, had switched to an all-natural raw diet, and were having great success with it. So I immediately switched, and within a week, the change was noticeable. Dakota had more energy most certainly, as did the other 2. When I brought him back to the vet, for his first insulin shot, it was found that his levels had stabilized, and he didn’t need it. The only thing we had changed was the food. They have all lost weight (a good thing for them!) they are all spunkier than they have been in years. And they are all as soft as minks, with no dandruff, and they are just incredibly glossy. I was skeptical, but wanted to try something else before insulin, and now I’m a total convert, they seem to like it better too. And honestly, we’re spending way less per month than we were buying them the premium dry food.

So here are the links I referenced. There are many more out there too. Good luck!

It all started at this page

http://www.felinediabetes.com/

There are wonderful resources here, even if you don’t have a diabetic cat. Lots and lots of information and very nice people on the message boards.

Probably the most helpful page. Very informative and easy to understand.

Another good page

And the recipe we’re currently making for our kitties

The food we started off feeding them before we started making our own. They give it 4 paws up!

Jasper and Tuxedo Recreating the Lava Cast Forest

Some of you may remember, Paula and I went out to Bend and visited the Lava Cast Forest. Jasper and Tuxedo didn’t get to come along, but they created their own version of the Lava CAT forest, by creating deep cat casts  on the bed!  If you don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, check out our link.
