The Megs Food Transition, cont’d

leave a comment »

Megs seems quite happy now with her Evo 95% Duck canned food: 1/2 a 5.5-oz can in the morning, the other half for dinner. She seems to start each meal by eating about somewhere between a third and half the food, then wandering away for a nap or other activity and returning later for more.

So I thought it was time to start the transition to homemade food. I bought a single skinless, boneless chicken thigh at Whole Foods (the guy was surprised that I was buying just one), and last night I cut from it three or four very thin strips, then cut those cross-ways into little tiny chunks.

Then I buried two of the chunks in the dinner duck and squeeze her dinner treat of one capsule of wild-salmon oil over the top. I put it down, and she dug in.

I was working on other stuff in the kitchen, but I heard her start chewing and chewing: clearly she hit one of the chunks. When I finally left the kitchen, she was gone, and most of her dinner was left. Uh-oh. I figured that one chunk might have been okay, but when she hit the second chunk, she figured the whole batch was bad. Oh, well. Back to plain duck for a few days.

But this morning I discovered her food bowl was completely empty—almost as if she had licked it after finishing the food. I guess a little bit of chunked chicken will be okay. 🙂 I’m keeping it as a dinner treat, though, at least for now.
