I needed to cut Hoshi’s hair because it was too long making him uncomfortably hot. I turned the furnace down to 64 °F and had fans on for him. It took about 5 hours to bath and trim him. He was fussy making it difficult to remove the heavy mats under armpits. I’ve haven’t trimmed him because he hates it. I would have liked to leave his coat longer but it’s beyond my skill
I found turkey and chicken gizzards at Whole Foods. They also had turkey necks. I’m hoping the neck bones will pass through the grinder easily. This will be a treat for Hoshi. I don’t think he’s had turkey necks before.
I’ve been buying Hoshi’s chicken thighs at Whole Foods because of their quality. I just noticed the packaging now says “organic.” I’ve been looking for organic chicken thighs for a while so it was a pleasant surprise. It costs a dollar more per pound. They also carry the whole chicken (organic) but I don’t know how to cut it.
I gave Hoshi a bath last night because his feet and face were dirty from our walks. I tried my best to trim him but he wasn’t cooperative last night. Trimmed his butt, face and paws. His hair is so soft and fluffy after a bath. I found one flea on him but he’s not due for Frontline again until the end of the month.
