We’re excited to share something with you—Wildernesscat is on the Catexplorer Podcast.
If you’re not already familiar with the Catexplorer community, you’re in for a treat. Catexplorer was created by Hasara and Daniel Lay, a talented couple who recognized the need for more and better information and resources for people who walk their cats. They started out on Instagram, where they’ve fostered a thriving community of over 5,000 Catexplorers. If you don’t follow them, check them out here: @catexplorer.community.
Catexplorer recently introduced a new way to get your daily dose of adventure inspiration: the Catexplorer Podcast. In each 60-minute podcast episode, Hasara and Daniel sit down with cat explorers or experts and discuss cats, food, adventure, and inspiration. We were pumped when the people at Catexplorer invited us to be a part of the Catexplorer Podcast. In this episode, we discuss how to make homemade raw cat food easy. We chat about the current state and growing trends of the cat food industry, what makes a good cat food, and how we can get over the scary obstacles to making homemade raw cat food.
