This here is where I eat. Why am I pointing it out to you? Because today I am going to tell you about how Harley and I are eating a "rotation diet." Here is what we read:
The Nature’s Variety Rotation Diet is based on the simple premise that more variety will provide better overall health and well-being for your pet. You don’t eat the same thing day in and day out, and neither should your pet. By varying the proteins and forms, your dog or cat will enjoy a more diverse and complete micro-nutrient intake, as well as exciting tastes and textures for better health and happiness.
They also say that there is no right or wrong way to feed a rotation diet. We can just eat various proteins and forms of foods! You can rotate the foods daily, weekly or monthly.
Here is the raw food we have been eating. Our main food is the raw chicken medallions, which we eat about 4 times a week. We also have raw venison and raw rabbit medallions that we eat sometimes. So far, only Harley likes the venison but we both love the rabbit and the chicken.
These are the frozen medallions: venison, chicken and rabbit. We only eat one kind of protein each day. So if we have chicken for breakfast, we have chicken for dinner.Hey, Mommeh! When are you going to thaw some out for me?
And here is another new food we are eating about once a week: it is Merrick's Before Grain canned food. We LOVE the quail. The ingredients are only quail, and water for processing. It is not a complete and balanced diet for everyday use, but we enjoy it as part of our rotation diet. I am a little bit crabilated because the food is still in the can instead of in my belleh.
We also share a small amount (1/8 cup each) of California Natural dry food at night. This food is good for cats like Harley who have allergies. If any of you have watched our live Webcam, you know that Harley usually finishes all his food in about 3 minutes, and it takes me a little bit longer.
Talking about foods is making me hungry. Is it suppertime yet? I am ready!
