Turkey for Cats


My employer generously gives us each a frozen turkey for the holidays.  This year, along with my own turkey, a co-worker gave me hers because her hubby actually dislikes turkey.  On Sunday, my hubby cooked both birds, and after pulling the meat off the bones, he cooked the bones and other stuff to make broth.  Everything then rested in the frig, until yesterday when we put everything through the grinder.  We made over forty packets of fresh ground turkey food for the cats!  We are vegans, after all, but the cats LURV this stuff!  It's now in the freezer, and I pull out a packet to defrost.  After a day or so, I stir in my concoctions, and every cat gets to chow down.  It's mostly for the 'o' cats, since Chuck has such a touchy intestine, but Angel and Chuck manage to get a share too.

We are grateful for the office's generosity, (plus the day off today) and I am thankful that the hubby will work so hard for the kitties.  The pile of dishes to wash up are staggering!

Hope you all had a delightful Thanksgiving Day for those in the States, and thanks for your kind thoughts for little Evie too.  I hope everything will work out for her, and I'm sure it will, however I'm going to put in lots of effort to find her a good furrever home. Now...time to get out and SHOP!

What a wonderful bounty for the kitties. Roasting the turkey is the easy part, getting it off the carcass is some work, but it's the clean-up that is the worst - I feel like I need a commercial size sink to clean those big pans.

Wow, didn't know there were still companies that give out turkeys. That's great they feed your cats! I wish I could stomach doing that for my cats but dealing with animal guts freaks me out too much, can't handle it! Yuck! Lucky kitties you have!

That was sweet of you to do for the kitties. I admore that you are vegans. I tried to be a vegetarian and only made it 10 months. Maybe I will try again in January. Great idea to grind it up too.

This has to be heaven for your cats! I can imagine the mess you're left with after processing those turkeys.

We hope Evie gets a wonderful home.
