So I finally signed up for a mentor and am going to do the switch (dance).
I signed up on December 28th. Though I am still waiting for a mentor I have already started trying to do the switch. My mom has just graduated from having her mentor and has offered to help me while I wait for mine. (Thanks LadyZinn ) Also thanks to sherry for informing me about this part of the thread I can write in while waiting so I can get help with whatever I need and what not. I have been keeping a daily journal on the switch to raw and stuff like that. I think I will do updates on here too so everyone knows what is going on and can give me pointers and what not till I get my awesome mentor. So I guess I should give the run down on what I have been up to.
So I have made the soupy mix. My mom taught me how. I used skinless chicken breast (deboned), chicken liver, and turkey hearts. Mom showed me how to blend and make them into ice cubes that equal an OZ of food per cube. I am on my 2nd day of soupy feeding switch thing. let me show you what I have been writing in my log so I can make sure I have been keeping a good log.
*~Raw Feeding Log~*
Day 1 (1/03/2014)
Morning: Took kibble away for 5 hrs before trying meat soup mix. It was suposta be 2 hrs but oi got sidetracked and forgot I had taken the food away. I put kibble back in the cage after morning soup feeding attempt. Started with putting some on their nose then trying to spoon feed them.
ate 7 baby spoon full of meat soup mix
She loved it
weight 1.54 lbs
ate 1/2 baby spoon full of meat soup mix
will try it but really dose not care for it
weight 1.56 lbs
would not eat or try any soup mix. would not lick it off her nose. kept trying to get away.
was acting like it was poison and I was trying to kill her with it.
kibble has been in all afternoon and I will leave it in over night like normal.
ate 12 baby spoon full of meat soup mix.
still loving it
ate 1 baby spoon full of meat soup mix
still really is meh about it
put some more on her nose and she finally licked it off. she licked the spoon and then spit the meat soup on my shirt.
she is a drama queen
Day 2 (1/04/2014)
forgot to take kibble out this morning.
ate 1 Oz of soup mix
thinks it is just the best stuff ever
*In cage soup & kibble - gave 1 oz and left a full bowl*
put some on her nose. she took 4 licks off the spoon. did not spit this time
she is still a drama queen though
ate 1 1/2 baby spoon full of meat soup mix
is still not really into it though
food left in cage all afternoon. will leave food in over night like normal. I will also be leaving 1oz of soup mix in Sadie's cage along with kibble.
at 1oz of meat soup mix off a plate. licked plate clean!
she is so loving this.
ate 2 baby spoon full of soup mix & licked the little lid to the container clean. I will try a plate next time.
she is warming up
ate 2 1/2 baby spoon full of soup mix. I have also not tried the plate yet.
I think we may be having a break threw but I don't know yet.
~UPDATE ON SADIE~
she licked the plate clean so I gave her another OZ of soup. It is 11:58 I will check again before I go to bed and if it is clean will give her another. mom said to let it be thick like pudding this time to see how she dose instead of adding a bit of water to make it soupy.
