sadly it's much harder with cats, they need a far more complex cocktail of ingredients than dogs, they can't manufacture their own taurine so need a supplement, I add taurine powder and omega oils to a 80-10-5-5 rough chop mince and hopefully they get what they need, it's not so important for the other two as they eat Iams/Canin in addition to raw so get what they need from that, but the monster in my Avvie eats exclusively raw

I also mix it up a bit with cheap white fish, sardines, and bone in chicken portions


I mix the meat with Chudleys Classic.

I'm allergic to cats
but there's a huge black and white boy that 'lives' in the garden. He's a bit of a scrapper, one torn ear and I took him to the vets once because he had a shotgun pellet lodged in his neck (no chip). My partner took a piece out of the shed wall, so there's a hidey hole under his workbench (if that makes sense), he sleeps in there in the day and prowls by night. He's used to me but I think he's semi wild, I doubt he'd be happy to be rehomed but he's fine where he is. His coat is beautiful. I'll get a picture if I can.


Me too - they make me sneeze, big time. Isn't it weird how we can be fine around dogs (& other animals), though? :dunno:

Good to see you've given your 'hobo' a place to lay his head. I guess you must be feeding him, too.

I actually haven't! There's a few of the cat, a few of my mums Smellymute but not Bear. I did do a digital drawing of a bloody amaze Newfie photo someone shared in a group I'm in though.

That is absolutely brilliant!
You are seriously talented.

I just drew it on the iPad with the Apple Pencil, pretty much the same technique as I use for physical drawings.

And thanks everyone! I loved that photo as soon as I saw it. I use it on my 'thank you for buying from me' cards now.

@ Nic...you said you're always on the lookout for something cute to work your magic on. You've already seen my tarts in the Cecil thread. Here are the twinnies I had before, when I lived in London. I cried for a year when I lost them, both within a month of each other.

Yep. Drawn freehand mostly (I use grids to make sure everything is in the right place), using a photo as reference.
