Schedule looks great. I am so proud of your progress, you did a great job! Its time to graduate!
Now there is one last thing I want you to do (and then I am moving this thread to the "newbie switch archive":
If you havent already, it might be a good idea to start popping in toNaturalFerrets. I know forum is small right now, but that is because they are switching to the new forum from a yahoo! group. There are many many senior raw feeders on there and it would be wise to make use of their knowledge. I try and advise all my "completed switchers" to get on there and post a bit. I still want you to say on HF, but I want you to "broaden your horizons" by getting a bit of NaturalFerret's info as well. Sound good?
You'll probably run in to the Holistic Ferret Mentors on there. This is where THEY go to ask THEIR questions on natural diet (I do too).
Let me know if you get any good info out of here.
Now that you've completed the switch, have had your feeding schedule reviewd, and been advised to check out NaturalFerrets, its time to retire this thread to the "newbie switch archive"!
No one (yourself included) will be able to post in this thread anymore once its been moved to the archive. Please begin posting your diet-related questions in the "whole prey" "raw" or "general feeding questions and discussion" area. We encourage EVERYONE that is archived to continue posting. Feeding a natural diet is a learning PROCESS, there is much to learn after making the switch.
We (your mentor and I) will run a detailed "check up" with you (via PM or email) at the 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, and 1 year anniversary since "going natural" just to make sure all is going well and that you arent having any issues.
Also, if you wind up getting a new addition any time in the future, just start a new thread in the "natural diet newbies" section if you need assistance.
Hooray!!! =D I'm so glad you were able to help me switch Leo and Molly. They are HUGE, SILKY SOFT, and WILDLY ACTIVE now thanks to the raw diet. When I started, they were stinky poop machines, LOL. Now they are the lights of my life =D
