Hello furriends, Bugsy here!
Things have been quite interesting lately around the house - first of all, meowmy stole our crunchy food from us - COMPLETELY - GONE! Can you believe it? All of the sudden, one day it was there, and the next it wasn't - no more crunchy goodness for us to mounch at throughout the day! The nerves!
Then she had this crazy thought that we are something called carnivores - or something like that. Means that we eat other animals like the one on TV! NEVER in a million years I would thought that!
Anyways, she is feeding us this thing called "Raw meat" three times a day now. And get this - it is ALL we eat. No treats, no crunchies, no nothing! We are now on day 20 - yep, I am counting!! And so far we had a huge animal called lamb, turkey and rabbit.
Frankly, I love it - particularly the lamb- pretty yummy stuff! In the beginning I was not too convinced, and meowmy was being very careful because of all my tummy problems and all.... But now I know exactly where to go at meal times to watch her kill the prey and make it nice and tasty for us.
One thing is for sure - for 1yr and 2 months I had the runs and was not feeling good at all.... All those vet trips didn't fix me.... I was taking a ton of meds and eating some crunchies that had an "ok" taste at best.... It took only 5 days on this new "Raw" diet, as meowmy calls it, for me to be all fixed up, and my poops are all normal and solid. I feel so good I am running all over the place and tearing the house down!
I am also off all my meds! I am only taking one probiotic and my stomatitis medicine.... That one I need to take....
Now meowmy just needs to convince Lucky to eat the meat - meowmy says she is a die-hard kibble addict, whatever that means - I think, she just feels bad for the other critters....
But we are working on it - she is already eating on a schedule (hehe, didn't see that one coming, did you lucky?!), and she is getting the meat as treats, dusted on halo freeze-dry chicken crumbs, which is her favorite thing in the world! Little by little meowmy is increasing the treats for her :) Hopefully it won't take too long for her to join us at the meat room! She doesn't know what she is missing!
Meowmy said my next step will be to try chicken...... it always gave me the runs.... maybe now that my system is better I will be able to deal with it - I hope so! I think it is yummy!

Pee Ess: Thank you so much for your support with Gracie's running to the bridge.... I was looking for her around the house for a very long time, and couldn't understand where she had gone :(
It's been a month now... We miss her so much... I loved her very very much... Meowmy is doing better, and our hearts are healing, but the house is still very empty. Gracie is very loved, and will be forever in our hearts <3

Hi ya, Bugsy! We hear that raw foods are really good for us so we'll be interested in how you all do with it.

We read about several kitties on the "raw" diet. Mom Paula says she barely has time to fix meals for herself, so she'll just keep trying to feed us "premium" foods.

We know you miss Gracie. Mom Paula still misses Sweet Praline.

We're on a mostly canned diet, with only a couple of TBSP of kibble a day to satisfy us because we're kibble-heads (especially Derry). But the mom says raw is the way to go, if possible. If not, grained-free canned. Good for you all for transitioning to a species-appropriate diet.

We have known other kitties that do well on raw diet. Hope you can handle the chicken!

Hooray for you! Harley and I eat a raw food diet, too. You are right, we are obligate carnivores!

I am really glad that your are doing so well on a raw diet, Bugsy. I hope that Lucky had gotten used to it, too. I can't have raw meat because of my depressed immune system.

Hiya, Bugsy! Congratulations on getting rid of your runny poops and getting off most of your medicine. The raw diet is really the best thing for kitties. We can't have it because of our feline leukemia weakened immune systems. Happy Gotcha Day!
