Hello friends! Raymond and I got a kick of out some of the comments on our Saturday Photo Hunt post. YES! We are real biological brothers. Litter mates. We don't look alike, probably because we had different Dads. Did you know a litter of cats can have up to FOUR different Dads? Wow! We also had some questions about our RAW diet. We have been eating raw food for over a year now. Our Mom thinks our energy level has increased (um, great photo to go with this one Mom!) and that our coats are much more soft and shiny. We shed less too. Raymond, who used to be VERY itchy, is much less itchy and no longer licks patches in his fur.
Our Mom makes our food once a week. She refrigerates enough for a few days and freezes the rest to be thawed as needed. It sounds time consuming, but once you get the hang of the recipe, it only takes about thirty minutes a week to prepare the food.
The recipes my Mom uses comes from an excellent (and well known) book called "Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats". Our Moms first discovered this book a few years ago when our older brother Alex developed CRF. (He was 19 human years old at the time) They fed Alex a high carb diet that they read about in the book. He lived to be 23 years old!
Feeding raw food is not for everyone. If you think you are interested in a raw diet or in homeopathic remedies for cats and dogs, you can check out Dr Pitcairn's website
HERE . We think it's a great book for everyhuman, whether they want to feed raw or not. There are cool recipes for treats in the book too, that are cooked.
We're not being paid by anyone to write this post. We had a few cats ask us about our raw diet and we figured this was a good way to answer everycat at once.
Have a lovely Tuesday, xoxo, Busby
PS-Mom is golfing today so we may not be around to visit until late this afternoon. See you later!
