Since 1997, Blakkatz has been a source for information on natural cat care. I have been raising my cats naturally since 1993. This means they've been fed a home-prepared raw meat diet (no commercial food at all), I've given them no vaccinations (except for what is required by law) and use homeopathy rather than conventional medicine to treat any illnesses. I raised five generations of cats in this manner.

I am no longer breeding American Shorthairs, but still maintain a colony of 13 or more cats and kittens exclusively on a raw diet. I moved to North Carolina in 2002 and in 2008 started Spellcast Farm. The cats are all "working" cats now. They keep the rodent population down. At Spellcast Farm, we raise meat rabbits on pasture, Jersey cattle and a flock of heritage breed ducks. The cats and dogs of Spellcast Farm are lucky to be able to dine on healthy, grass-fed meat.
