My rotation feeding method for my cats

As many of you have probably noticed, I feed my cats several different types of food (I agree with the rotation feeding method). I try to stay grain-free with my selections. I currently feed Blue Buffalo Wilderness Chicken Recipe as the "main" food with Sheba Pate (not super happy with ingredients but the cats eat it, which is something I cannot say for many types of canned foods) canned foods (mostly the turkey and the whitefish and tuna ones) and Wild Calling kibble included in the rotation as well. I also get different canned foods (brands/flavors) as well. I have now started to introduce RAW into the rotation as well. I picked up a bag of Nature's Variety Instinct Frozen Raw Duck Bites yesterday and let the cats try it today. After sniffing it for a bit (it is very different in texture, smell, etc.), they decided it was food and scarfed it down. Hopefully they continue to eat it. The main reason I am using the brand I am is because of the safety and quality control methods that they use to prevent bacterial contamination. So, to wrap it up, in my rotation for the cats, I feed Blue Buffalo Wilderness dry, Sheba canned, Wild Calling kibble, Nature's Variety Instinct Frozen Raw Duck Bites and assorted other canned foods. I figure that feeding a wide variety of foods will lead to less "food boredom" as well as fewer health problems.

Sunny Turns 5!

As hard as it is for me to believe, Sunny turns five years old today. It doesn't seem like five years (almost since it's not the day I got her yet) since I picked up a crying, one-and-a-half week old kitten. She was so tiny we weren't sure she would make it but after several weeks of bottle-feeding every few hours and taking her everywhere (since she had to be fed so often) with me, she was getting bigger and stronger every day. She is still very attached to people (me especially) and is such a sweet kitty. Happy Birthday, Sunny!
