I watched/listened to the entire video.  :) I can't say that I liked it, BUT I also don't think anyone should put their own "spin" on it.   2cents

I've seen the partial replays on the news, but not watched the whole thing. Within 20 seconds worth on the news, I felt the worst levels of every "bad" emotion that exists--all at once.

Didn't watch the video and don't plan to, but I'm cringing just looking at the sheet music.  If she actually sang those "lyrics" in that way . . . *shudder*

Tell me, were dogs howling throughout America by the time it was done?

Raw Feeding / Re: Catgirl64's Journey To Raw Feeding

Yes, very well.  I'm sorry I haven't updated in a while.  Not much luck getting the cats to eat bones.  Lily and Bandit will, but the problem with that, as I suspected, is that Lily drags anything that isn't ground up under the covers of my bed, eating some immediately, and stashing some for later.  I would love for her to have the benefits of bones, but not so much that I'm okay with finding her treasures under my pillow.   ::)

Still loving the fact that the cats' coats don't mat anymore, and that their poop is not so smelly.  I'm also getting a better idea of what a correct portion looks like.  I think that initially I was putting down too much food, and then panicking when they didn't eat all of it.  It takes a while to shake the "free feeding" mindset, in terms of how much to feed at each meal, and way too easy to offer what should be a day's worth of food all at once.   

It does take a while to shake any kind of mindset like that.  Queen Eva was so skinny and malnourished, but she was very light bones and is meant to be a slender cat. She also has weird tendon issues, so has to be kept light for that reason. Even now it's difficult for me to cut back on her amount if I see she's gained a couple ounces.

Conversely, Jennie, being a rescued stray with food anxiety, gained a lot of weight on even small amounts of canned food. On raw she doesn't have the same issue and is staying fit and trim. Sometimes she drops an ounce or two and I need to increase her quantity, and it still feels weird to do that, because of the years I was struggling to keep her weight down.

We will try to go that route but right now there are to many personal factors (job up in the air, elderly parents on two continents, ...).

We won't beat you up for not feeding raw.   Silly7

Thanks for checking in!  :)
As far as the bone issue... sometimes you have to find something that works for the furkids AND you... especially with a houseful.  I get it.  :)
When I started out feeding raw... I think I fed a total of 6 or 7 ounces each-ish a day for the cats.  (The total amount is a lot less now.) Anyway, when feeding 3 meals a day, I had a VERY difficult time wrapping my head around such small amounts. 
Even though I knew I was feeding them (cats and Lacy dog) pretty much more then the average daily amount... meals seemed soooooooo small. 
Weighing everyone once a week, helped me to know what I was doing was right.  It is also good to make sure no one loses or gains too much weight too fast.
