Post Christmas, the masses are back to work, kids are back at school and life returns to normal (not sure what normal is). We had a busy run through the Christmas period at Jimbo's and the Purrrfect Pressie went down a treat this year selling out before Christmas Eve. We will have to increase the numbers next year!
I have been having a running battle over the last couple of weeks - a certain little black cat that resides on the end of my bed at night must have decided that I am a bad hunter. Due to this somewhat poor assessment of my ability to provide for myself and my family, said black cat has taken it upon herself to ensure that I am well catered to.
Unfortunately, breakfast on the hoof is not my normal morning fare, and not at 3 in the morning despite the fact that it is delivered with a fanfare of caterwauling and feline song sufficient to wake a hibernating bear (which is how I sleep). Rabbits and mice similarly are not to my taste - that being said, if I don’t give sufficient praise and show appreciation for her efforts, Ono sets about either consuming the said beast and/or losing interest leaving it to scurry away and hide. This generally results in Poppy the dog being “On Point” beside the dressing table or bed all day in the expectation that said furry beast will be foolish enough to run out from under its hidey-hole and straight into her mouth. Needless to say, this generally doesn’t happen and it results in me rearranging the furniture when I get home from work in an effort to locate what was, in effect, my breakfast. Pets are never boring eh.

"What are those triangular structures in the Jimbo's Beef & Lamb?"
Jimbo's Beef & Lamb is a nutritious product that is great for dogs. We use beef, lamb and heart in this tasty formula. Included in the beef cuts of this recipe is a small amount of beef cheek, which is a favourite even of some people once it has been trimmed and slow-cooked. It is best for dogs, of course, when it is raw, and in this form it can look a bit strange to those who haven't seen it before.
Beef cheek is covered in papillae - triangular structures similar to the below. Beef cheek can look odd to the untrained eye, but it is a chewy, nutritious ingredient that dogs love - in fact, we used to sell it all on its own. Now the only Jimbo's product that includes this cut of meat is Beef & Lamb. You can read up more about this product on our website.
