Hi All! I signed up for a mentor, but as we all wait I decided to start a thread here. Any advice, encouragement, your experiences; I could use any and all! So, I made a raw soupie on Saturday (July 19) and Zekrom & Elvyra took to it no problem! I tried to get Pepper to eat some (she dove in when I first tried last month) but she would lick my finger and run off? Better than nothing I suppose Reshiram, god love that chunky butt! He 'seems' like he wants to please everyone who crosses his path. He tried, I could tell he didn't want to eat any of it, but sat with me. I think I got soup all over his chin and my legs but he did get a taste...and then rubbed his face on the carpet for 5 minutes! Zoey, my sweet baby princess, turned 3 years old on Thursday (july 17) and she's been doing great! Some of you might remember I posted (excited and nervous thread) that Zoey was diagnosed with adrenal disease back in May. She's been very kissy ever since she got her implant (I like to think of it as she knows I want to best for her and she appreciates her Momma!) but she still does not want to try anything new. So, as Zekrom was chowing down and the other 3 were being crazy, Zoey was sleeping in the hammock....on her back.....with her face exposed..... So I dabbed my finger in the soup and placed my finger to her mouth; lick, lick, lick! I couldn't believe it! So I dabbed more soup and Zoey licked my finger clean again! And cleaned it a third time! I'm so excited I start tearing up I go to get more soup but as I turn around Zoey hops out of the hammock. I tell her she's a good girl and put my finger to her mouth; spit and instant rubbing on the carpet. I guess she has to be half asleep to eat raw BUT, it's better than anything I've tried before..... So that was Saturday; Sunday was similar but Zoey was awake and couldn't get her to lick her lips. Zekrom and Elvyra has most of the plate; Pepper and Reshiram 'did their own thing' and I could only grab and dab a couple times. Same experience last night (monday). All in all, I'm pleased! Zekrom will be 3 years old in October and Elvyra just turned 1 year old June 30th. I know I can get Pepper and Reshiram on board, just have to keep at it! I think if Zoey can taste the soup in her sleep, it may help? I know she will be my most stubborn, but she also needs this the most! Oh, the soup is made up of chicken thigh(just meat), chicken heart, liver, and gizzard. The next batch I make, I'm going to add an egg and some egg shell too. So, this is where we're at...I'm pumped! And I'm determined to get my kids all raw!
