I am hand feeding one of mine right now, and I make it a point about once a week to grab each of the others & make them have a little bit of the mixture I use. Saves having to go through that drama if one of them gets sick and MUST be on soft food. My mixture consists of 2 scoops of their dry food, 1 jar each of turkey & chicken baby foods, 1 can of A/D food and water to cover the whole mixture. Blend & refrigerate, then warm (not hot) before serving.
