Depends on what kind of oils you're talking about, how you're using them, and what you're using them for.

That's what I was going to say.  Also, is your fur-baby canine or feline?  Felines can't metabolize medium-chain fatty acids like coconut oil, but dogs might be okay with it.  DeeDee is our resident dog expert.

Basically, if you give a good fish oil, something like Nordic Naturals salmon oil, that has a lot of Omega 3s, that's better than a vegetable oil.  Omega 3s are anti-inflammatory.

I hope this helps, and welcome!   :)

No. I'm not having fun anymore. They are. I'm not, and it's still coming down.

I am concerned about oils that I use. Some say it will harm my fur baby . True or false

Queen Eva seemed a little depressed after the Box Spring Mountain left.  However I finally got a clue and realized that that corner offers a whole other side of 'jungle gym' antics.  Usually we play her chase and climb and leap Games (pre-Mountatin) on the living room side of the Play House.  But last night Queen Eva showed me how many other opportunities there are for leaping and climbing on the other side.

We had some great Games last night but she misses the climbing she could do with the Mountain.

So I've been looking for tall scratchers that can be set up next to the book case (where I cleared more space) so she can climb to it.

I've found two

This one is surprisingly cheap and has great reviews except for one and it has the height I want

And the Mondo...

I think Queen Eva would like the cheap one better, it looks more conducive to climbing, but I am worried about that one review about it breaking.

They prefer sisal fabric rather than rope for scratching which would turn me to the Mondo, but this is mainly for climbing anyway.

I'd really prefer the square one, because Queen Eva likes edges, but it's too short.

PS I almost forgot about Wade cat trees.  I'll see if they have anything, later.

I have been known to drive through McDonalds and get just a hamburger patty for Lacy dog.  Who knows what they add to their meat... or if they do.  BUT a treat doesn't always have to be "perfect."  I probably shouldn't have admitted to that or say this, but....  Lacy dog ate kibble for years.... there isn't much worse than that!!

I thought you might want to watch those, Catgirl64. I find a lot of information from them. If I don't do what they suggest, I at least get a lot of information about many things that I might need in the future.

I have been meaning to ask you if is okay to use some frozen things, as long as it is just the fruit or veg, with nothing added.   

I have plenty of time to work out a strategy for home-made puree.  I still have lots of base mix left at this point.  I think I have a lot to learn about feeding dogs this kind of diet.  When I fed raw before, I did strictly prey-model.   

As long as there's no salt or sugar added, frozen is fine. Honestly, I've come home late on my mom's appointment days that I needed to defrost food (but forgot about it before leaving) and used some of our canned food until the next morning. 

Right after Daddy died, during the 1.5 yrs, they ate a lot of canned food thanks to my memory being so sucky. Twice in the past year, they've even had Burger King hamburgers brought home to them for dinner. *gasp*

Life and food doesn't have to be SO rigid that you absolutely can't take shortcuts sometimes. I look at a lot of things like, "Would I have fed the boys this(?)" and the answer is usually, "YES!"
