I haven't been on in a while and most probably don't remember me but I suppose an update is in order. Moon Sugar is adjusting well and being loud, obnoxious, and overly affectionate. She still has some issues I'm working on; like hating being picked up and getting twitchy around feet but otherwise she's fine. Skooma is awesome and now that spring has sprung, is clamoring constantly for her half hour morning walks. Both cats switched easily to raw diet and moose meat. Sugar is still leery about whole prey mice but eats pretty much everything else (quite literally, her walks are an effort).

So, update over and onto the good stuff. My dad just got his bear of the season and we gutted it a couple of minutes ago. It's hanging in the carport overnight 'till there's more light so dad can skin it properly. He gave me most of the organs and is going to save me the brain and the feet and hands (for bones I'm hoping).

But I have yet to prepare any other organs besides heart and liver (I've been supplementing with Evo 95% Chicken and Turkey). So now that I have the pancreas and am soon to have a brain how do I prepare it? Cut it up? Can brain freeze without damaging it? Can cats eat lungs? What other organs can they eat safely and are good for them?

Aaaand that's all the questions I got for now... I'll think of something later...

you can do what you'd do with any other organ, cut it and freeze it, they can eat any organ.\

HOWEVER...I think bears carry trichinosis because they eat garbage. I'm not sure if it's safe to feed without proper, long term freezing, maybe someone else can chime in on it.

Hmmm... is it still unsafe even if you know what the bear has been eating? The sweet smell from the carcass indicated it's been eating greens and not meat and it was pretty young... He shot it on the farm of a friend of his waaaay out in the country...

*sigh* So much I still don't know about raw.
