Makena at the cottage

Here's Makena on her early morning jaunt at the cottage. "The dollhouse" provided perfect access to the cottage grounds and the lake for my beautiful Balinese. As you can see, she is happy and excited to begin her morning exploring....supervised, of course....

Siamese classics

Manu and Makena's second trip to a cottage near Bancroft was just as enjoyable as their first trip. Here, my gorgeous kitties are lounging in the comfortable "dollhouse" cottage in the sun, performing cat yoga (yes it is true, yogis watched animals to create asanas).

Makena and Manu go camping

Well along with raw diet, what cats need is fresh air. Makena and Manu loved camping on our recent vacation near Bancroft, Ontario. They had their own cabin to themselves and were very busy lounging, prowling through the grass and taking in the fresh air and the sights and sounds of nature. Take a look at Makena's homage to Matisse photo; and Manu lounging in the grass.

Makena Summer 2010 update

Well Makena's vet is extremely impressed by her health and beauty. At 3 years, this girl weighs about 12 lbs. As a Balinese, she's extremely acrobatic -- she can easily jump 6 feet into the air, catch a fly, do a backward flip and land on all fours. Truly amazing to see.

After three years now on raw diet, Makena is proof positive that the natural evolutionary diet that felines were designed to eat is the best possible option. True, it takes a bit of effort for me to trek to the butcher every month and prepare her food, but the result is worth it.

She's a happy, healthy cat with absolutely no health problems. No parasites, no issues with salmonella. Of course, practising safe food handling is paramount.

Makena in 2010

Makena is now almost 3 years old. Her birthday is May 15. We will be going for a vet check up soon to see the effects of three years of raw diet. She is healthy, happy and very eager, every morning, for me to open the screen balcony door so she can watch the birds and squirrels in the trees.
