We bought a bag of wild salmon tips from a raw pet food vendor in the Vancouver Farmer’s Market yesterday. It’s the first time I fed Nemo raw salmon with bones. In the past we’ve only given him salmon and tuna sashimi. I’ve always wanted to feed him a whole fish, especially the fish head. Salmon tail tip was the first step toward my goal. I put the salmon chunk on a kabob stick, the same way I fed him beef or chicken chunks. Nemo probably had very little fish/seafood in his life. He didn’t seem to like the salmon very much. By saying so, I mean he didn’t try to swallow the whole thing within 2 seconds. He was having trouble breaking the skin in the beginning and it frustrated him. He turned away twice but came back to the fish right away. It took him about 10-15 minutes to finish the chunk. I was surprised how hard he had to chew to break the fish and bones. I think this is a good alternative to chicken drumsticks.

Nemo was very active tonight. He initiated playing by attacking a home-made mouse in the living room and jumping on the stairs. I took the hint and took out his green mouse on a fishing rod. He went nuts. I think his desire to play indicated that he was hungry. After more than 2 years of being served meals after playtimes, he learned to associate playing and eating.
