Hanno, met Lola - she flat out refuses vegetables and fruit!! When we first got her I fed her a mix of fruits, vegetables, Wysong kibble and cooked meat. I could hand her a whole apple for a snack and she would eat it. She ate raw broccoli, carrots, bananas etc... After about 3 weeks I changed her diet to a raw prey model diet. I started having to grind the fruits and veggies in order for her to eat them and she would only eat them before I gave her the meat, if I served together or after meat she was not going to eat them! Then I had 2 foster dogs at once and I could not make the veggie mush for a couple of months. I made it again and she flat out refused it. If you give her an apple to eat she will roll it around like a ball but she won't eat it!
The only REAL thing I'm campaigning for here is a little respect. I respect that each family does things in the way that is best for them and I hope that I can get that from others, whether or not they happen to agree. There are bigger mountains to climb in terms of animal rights, so until every single critter is in a responsible and loving environment, I'm not going to criticise anyone's feeding habits.
Here's just one thing that really matters to me: Every morning at around 4 when my husband comes home from work our young cat leads him to the bedroom tells him to lie down next to me in bed. The dog then asks permission to come up too and she gets in between my husband and I. Then all three of us are completely slathered with affection from the kitten (okay, he's nearly 2). He nuzzles and kisses me, my husband and the dog alternately while purring like the dickens. This goes on for about 20 minutes until he thinks we are asleep and hegets off the bed to go back to his bed. The dog then goes back to her bed and I get a few more hours sleep. Life with critters can be so beautiful and rewarding.....
