Breakfast With Guido

Guido when he was a kitten
Guido was on a raw food diet when he was living at Pet Epicure so when we adopted him, I thought he might want a taste from home.

However, Guido ignored the raw food and dove into commercial cat food. As he ate nothing else, I stopped offering raw meat.

Then when I was making a steak and mushroom pie some weeks later, Guido pitched up and by shameless begging showed me wanted some steak.

He then proceeded to snaffle a large share of the steak so we had a mushroom with some steak pie.

Guido snaffling steak
Ever since then he's been eating raw steak for breakfast and dinner - with the odd bowl of commercial cat food and lots of dental treats.

Alicia and the gang at Pet Epicure said that Guido was a scrap of fur and bones when he arrived on their doorstep.  They fed him up and when they gave him to me, Guido was a good looking little cat.

Guido today eating breakfast
He's still handsome but he's growing by the hour. 

This is him now: big, tall, powerful, super shiny and bursting with health and energy. 

To see him after breakfast, visit our Facebook page. I'm telling you: it's a squeeeeeeeeeeeee moment!

And may we boast?  Our book Katz Tales: The Adventures of Scoop and Au are now available from Barnes and Noble!!!

Guido, this just shows what happens when a kitty has a good home!

Oh that is exciting. We are not big fans of raw food ourselves, though the woman would like us to be!

Whoa! I love it that he can beg like me! When we under the care of our kitty sitters Down Under, we were always given raw meat as treats. Nowadays, we'll just go round Mama's legs like a shark whenever she handles meat. Just us the Aussie kitties. My full blood Malaysian sisfurs and brofurs don't seem to appreciate them. har har har *evil laughs*

Our human really wishes we'd show an interest in raw meat, but we don't show an interest in anything but commercial wet and dry cat food--and even then we're VERY picky about the canned.

Concats on your new book!

Mum has tried giving us meat - we don't want to know - all her before cats have eaten it - but we're not even sniffing it!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Raw steak for breakfast and dinner...how lucky he is!! We can't serve beef because Goro threw up once when I served it, and threw up again when he stole some from kitchen counter. It seems his stomach can't take it :-( The picture of Guido with huge steak is very cute :-)
How wonderful that Barnes and Noble carries your book!! Congratulations!

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Yeah Guido, youze a pretty good-lookin' mancat all right. I wish we still had facebook so I could see your other picture but the Human deleted her facebook and says my blog is enough Internet for me but I disagree wif her. ::pout::

I have been offered all sorts of Human fuds and never been interested in any of it, but now that I come to think of it, I think it has all been cooked already. Hmmmmm.

Barbara said...

I don't think ours would like raw meat - it would take too long to chew it! Guido is such a beauty...

Congrats on Barnes and Noble!

Willow said...

Guido you were holding out for the good stuff with the steak. Love how very shiny your furs are. Concats on your book launch.

Katie Isabella said...

You boys are welcome to come over and help me out. Three ornj mancats will definitelt tell that Ginger what-for!

Eric and Flynn said...

Yuo're living the good life Guido! Our mum wishes we would eat raw food. All the cats that came before ate it, but we turn our noses up.

meowmeowmans said...

Yay for Guido! Way to hold out for the steak. MOL.

Congratulations on Barnes and Noble! That is so exciting! :)
