Raw Feeding guru: Michelle Bernard of blakkatz.com5 October, 2006
I have been warbling on in the past few months about the benefits of raw-feeding for cats, and probably gave you the impression that I know it all.
Not at all.
Most of my knowledge has come mainly from the leading authority on raw-feeding for cats: Michelle Bernard of the Blakkatz cattery in the USA.
Whenever anyone writes to me asking for advice, I point them to her web-site: http://www.blakkatz.com.
She’s made it easy for people who are interested in raw-feeding – she’s done all the research into cat nutrition, she’s worked on raw-feeding recipes and more importantly she walks the talk where holistic rearing is concerned: Her cats are 100% raw-fed and she uses homeopathy to correct health imbalances.
And if you’ve been looking for a book on raw-feeding for cats, she’s written the only one that is backed up by scientific research and years of experience. It’s called: “Raising Cats Naturally: How to care for your cat the way nature intended”.
There are other books on raw feeding, but not one specifically for cats – that’s an important distinction because some raw-feeding books may have recipes for dogs which have different nutritional requirements to cats. Her book also has a clear explanation on how to use homeopathy for cats.
She’s been the source of encouragement and inspiration for people like me looking for a safer and healthier way to raise their pets.
And oh … she writes a great blog too … you’ll love reading about her cats, the litter of kittens she’s recently rescued, and her wonder dog, Angelus, a Border Collie!
