Hey, all! I just discovered something that might be of help to all you premade raw feeders.

Hazel has tendency to want to eat "later", rather than when I first set the food down. "Later" might be four hours after I have gone to work. By that time the premade has become a warm, dry-out mess. Yuck!

What to do? What to do? Suddenly I remembered all these gel cold packs I keep in the freezer for when I use my cooler. I took one out and set it on the cat's table, set the porcelain saucer with the premade on top of it, and - VOILA! - instant cold buffet. The saucer and meat stay nice and cool for hours, or until Hazel makes up her mind to bring her hiney back inside to eat her food.

I keep two-three of these gel packs in the freezer, and just pull out a frozen one when I need it.

Oh, excellent suggestion, Hazel! As the resident "mommycat" here I will tell our big human mommy to do just that. WE like to nibble, too--although when we first got raw several months ago we just went bananas with glee when mommy fed us that great raw stuff (right now it's Nature's Variety Organic Chicken--num, num)!
