I have really changed the kinds of food that I give to Alice. Here is what she mostly eats. Prickly pear cactus pads, prickly pear fruits, dandilion greens, aloe, kale, mustard greens, backyard grass, collard greens. I also plan on feeding wheat grass, baby bok choy, and turnip greens. Also Muzuri grassland feeders large pellets at will. As I study her, while she eats, I find she doesn't like, and even spits out, the rib of the leaves. So I will cut them off the leaf.
Do you think that is a good idea. No one ever mentions the ribs.
She has been eating this kind of food for for probably 4 weeks now. Just today when she went wee wee I found hard gritty urates. It's the first time in 6 months it was gritty. Mostly she has none or it is really like toothpaste. She drinks a little water and I give her a shower about 1 time a week. She has a hide box with temp of about 87 and room temp of 80.
