A little more than four weeks ago, we turned to Raw Feeding (model Franken Prey).
The theory of the Franken Prey model is the following one : the meat is roughly cut into pieces, and every meal represents artificially a whole prey (meat, giblets and bone) in the good proportions.
But in the practice…
– Pixie doesn’t like giblets.
– Zorro doesn’t like too much meaty bones (chicken necks most of the time).
How to do ?
Claire has to use trickery : to be able to watch that each eats correctly, she gives giblets and half of meaty bones in the morning, and the other half of meaty bones in the evening.
Zorro always comes to eat first while Claire is having breakfast. She cuts the half chicken neck in slices, and coats them with crumbs of crushed treats. She gives them to Zorro at the same time as giblets. When Zorro has finished, he receives then his ration of meat. Claire will do the same thing with the chicken neck for the dinner.
Pixie comes to eat when Zorro has ended. The first meal of Pixie is ground (meat and giblets). Miss cannot sort out and eats gladly her swill. When she has finished, she receives a piece of chicken neck which she gnaws and chews with great pleasure!
The meal of the middle-day mainly consists of meat : no need to watch. Once a week, Claire enriches this meal with a food complement (vitamins, minerals, trace elements and taurine) and a little salmon oil.
