They have been getting a mix of things over last week or so.
Bone element of diet has been things like duck or chicken necks, quail, minced pigeon, minced pheasant and minced rabbit. We have got a bit stuck on the beef liver and kidney and lamb hearts. Must try and rotate them out a bit more than I have been. They have had a lot of fish recently. Some has been white fish to try and lower the fat content of overall meal for Gypsy. Should be giving them a few more eggs than I have been. Most of the meat has been turkey, veal and the odd bit of exotic (ostrich) or beef.
Tomorrow have got some lamb chunks out for Phoebe as she does not need the low fat diet Gypsy does.
Cos of work being busy at the moment am mostly feeding completes / whole prey minces. Mostly it is the MVM dinners range at the moment with the odd packet of Naturaw, paleoridge or Kiezebrink pigeon (not forgetting sprats and the odd egg)! Bit restricted as it is mostly chicken and beef so must keep eye out on next order to make it more varied.
Have a number of completes with tripe in but dad was really put out when I last fed tripe cos of the smell so sort of need the folks to have a break away to feed those items!
Also got a way too lax at writing their food diary up (at least a month behind) so at some point I have a mammoth task of writing that up! I have feeling the calcs to work out approx fat content for Gypsy might never get done!
Right now Jasper is totally off his food. The only thing I can get him to eat is maybe a chicken wing, but he's now wanting Royal Canin, and that has to be put in his Kong.
God what have I created, the fussy little so and so.
How pleased am I that Beau has had same food for past 9 1/2 yrs, hes eager to eat it , he doesn't complain not even when he has to have his arthriade squirted on his morning feed and his plaqueoff sprinkled on his evening meal. he gets his milk bones in between meals.
tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!

lotsofcats: I can remember when that happened with Lexi.

Gillykat: Oh yes......just drinking their adorable cuteness Been picking up and cuddling new boys too and they're starting to realise I'm a harmless idiot who gives them a treat every time I do so.
