Feeding Raw with Balanced Blends

Balanced Blends, raw diet for cats

Feeding Raw with Balanced Blends As a pet parent, making sure my cats have a top notch diet is a huge priority for me. Unfortunately, with the pet food market the way it is, it is difficult to find a commercial diet that meets all of my standards.

Breathing Easy with a Raw Diet

Sophie

Breathing Easy with a Raw Diet Well, it’s been about a month since I began this whole raw meat journey, and it’s been about two weeks since I have consistently been feeding the cats the raw diet. Let me tell ya… It’s been AWESOME! Sophie, our CH kitty, is the raw meat star. When we first got her, she had irritable bowel syndrome and chronic upper respiratory infections. We were having to give her baths on a daily basis because...

Learning Curves with a Raw Diet

Bird Watching Cats

Learning Curves with a Raw Diet So it’s been a while since my last post. Things have been busy for The Halls of Music, so that’s good news! In the world of the cats…well, there’s never a dull moment there either. My raw-meat-feeding journey has unintentionally been put on hold. Last I posted, I had just bought a beef heart for the cats, which they all loved! Only two instances of vomit, so we got off to a pretty good...

After much reading and researching and talking about it, I FINALLY took the next step in switching my cats over to a raw meat diet – I bought some raw meat. It’s really been a long time coming.
