Since 2003, I've been making natural raw food and treats for my pets, using only fresh raw meat and healthy locally-grown ingredients.
My goal is to help you keep your best friend healthy and happy too.

How to Feed Your Cat, Too

There were complaints that I left cats out in my previous post, so here goes, but it's a long one:

Starting from the supposition that you're struggling to feed your cat, between the high cost of pretty much everything, and the risks inherent in feeding commercial foods in this era of pet-food recalls, here are some ways to provide appropriate meals without buying prepared cat food.

Everything I said about the benefits of feeding raw meat to dogs, applies to cats too, but there is far less flexibility in what cats can eat, and they need to try to get all the nutrition they need in one day, every day, so in some respects, it's easier to feed a cat. Cats are obligate carnivores, meaning they can only use protein from animal sources, and cannot fully digest plants, nor glean from them all the nutrients they require.

It's Market Season

The market season has sprung, and tomorrow marks the first day of the South of the James market in Forest Hill Park. Look for DogTown Lounge's red tent on the left about halfway down as you enter, we should be in the same spot as last year. I'm looking forward to seeing all the faces I've missed all winter! :)
