Thankful for our Health
Since the day the awful v.e.t stoled seven of mine teef I haf been fankful dat I haf any teef left at all. Da vet lady said "yoo'll be back and we'll take da rest someday." Um. No. We won't be back and mine teef will be fine. Dis teef fing just put Mommy ofur da edge as far as what to feed us.
Now we are eating raw food. We still likes owr stinky goodness but dat will end up mostly being a treat (we still get canned Instinct or Wellness). We get raw chicken once a day or sometimes we gets lamb chops (when dey am on sale) an if da neybor gets any more vishus deer some day den we will get some of dat.
As yoo can see it takes a lot of chewin' an chawin' to eat dat chicken. It am lots of fun to eat raw meat. We gets to naw at da bone an stuff. What's dis haf to do wif teef yoo want to know? It helps to clean owr teef clean coz we actually chews somefin. And NO, dry food duz not do da same fing. Mom duzn't efun like to say da "k" werd - |kibble| coz dat's just BAD stuff. Yoo can read about feeding dry food and why not to feed dry food here.
Mom had two male cats from before who both ended up wif surgery to correct urinary track blockages they got from eating cheap stinky goodness and dry food. One died from lymphoma (HUGE tumor at the injection site for vaccines and dat's why we don't get vaccines unless absolutely necessary like rabies and dat's it) and the other ended up dying from complications due to diabetes. He had flaky skin and what she now knows were allergies to da food he wuz eating.
Mom now reads efurryting about what to feed cats and about why so many cats are dying from human diseases. Da latest book she read is The Veterinarians' Guide to Natural Remedies for Cats by Martin Zucker. Dare are all kinds of recommendations on what to feed us. Plus Angie's new holistic v.e.t. she went to said it was fine for us to eat da chicken. We wuz going to use dat meat grinder but he said we could just eat a cut up chicken leg and dat's what we do.
Mine teef look good, bouf me an Angie's breaf smells 100% better an I lost one and a half pounds. Look! I efun haf a waist now but I lost mine love handles. Do yoo finks Powder will still like me wifout dem?
