Yes - that's something I have found out the last urinalysis of Kaffe (about the veggies, I mean).  His pH was 7.0 - right on neutral!  oooohhhh.... yes - definitely go easy on the veggies!  But then, when I had the urinalysis Kaffe was having raw with extra grated carrots to make him "go" faster... BIG mistake  Sad

I'm almost afraid to type this.

Miss Kitty is eating raw organic chicken coarsely chopped & little strips... and she buried the cooked. Not much, granted, but eating is better than burying.

The other two are not exactly happy. Scooter refused the plain cooked & got a couple of pieces of raw put on her tongue. She chewed down twice and swallowed.. sniffed the dish and LEFT. Oh. She came back. ate 3 more small pieces (with my assistance). Mean mommie.

Ling scorned it all and drank water - I guess she's wondering where the bread is Sad

They're hoping Grandma Lucy is just visiting a few minutes. Sad

Live Update ROFL:

Ling ate one thin slice of cooked 2x3" strip. MK came back and ate the 2nd cooked slice.

When Scooter left, I mixed the rest of raw chicken in her FF chicken. She's eating.

Hey, maybe this is picky progress?

Can Poco come by and hunt for the hidden treasures?  Smiley

Sure -and speak in your inside voice to teach them how to properly dine in upscale restaurants.

Well, Poco can hitchhike back home. The kitchen has closed.

Pretty much all I have accomplished is Scooter developing an aversion to FF gourmet chicken & the turkey & giblets. Leaving her with one flavor, the liver & chicken.

I'm going back to putting down the wet, putting out kibble (Nature's Logic Chicken & Merricks Before Grain) after meals for them graze on at night and letting things settle down.  I won't be sharing my organic with them and discovered yesterday that my meals and theirs cannot overlap anymore or they're suspicious of the wet foods.

I thought it was hard getting MK on wet. Scooter takes the prize for ultimate in stubborn. She's won this round.

I'll check back and see how the UCD tests on frozen/cooked hearts turned out and the FF tests.

Offy, I can identify with your frustration related to creating aversions for Scooter.  I think I created some aversions for Phantom in the same way, in trying to get her on a larger variety of wet foods.  (She will now only eat one kind of wet food, a fish kind that I don't want to give her every day because of all the problems that can result from a fish diet.)

When people give advice about using this transition technique, they don't often point out that that some cats will accept those sorts of transitions, but some develop aversions.  Maybe they have never run into a cat that develops an aversion to the old food rather than learning to accept the new food.

What I learned about Phantom is that I have to be absolutely honest with her.

Offy,
I made pork tenderloin tonight for me and DH; unfortunately it got a little dehydrated on the grill - on the positive side - I made my dog a batch of chicken tenders tonight (they were $0.99/lb yesterday) to freeze for her meals this next week. Her meal saved our day! we ate some of her chicken tenders for dinner. She looked like: what are you doing with my food!  Our animals have good tastes.

kaffe;

It was funny. First DH saw the pork tenderloin cut up (after it "dehydrated" there was maybe one 3 oz serving) he wasn't to sure it was okay to eat. I had just packaged and placed the "dog meals" in the freezer - thankfully they were still warm.. I placed two tenders on his plate and added a little barbecue sauce. He wondered why they were so white! since I had cooked them on the grill (88 here in Tucson so I grill now rather than turn the oven on). So I proceeded to explain to him how her tenders are "poached in their own juices" and healthier than the carbonized meat. I think he was so hungry that as long as it appeared on my plate too - it was okay. So we both ate "dog food" the other night! I don't dare tell his friends...
