Its not for the squeemish, but even domestic kitties love getting pinky mice every once in a while.

:lol: This might sound silly, but my cat loves hard boiled eggs. I'm not sure about the whites, but I am 100% sure the yolk is good for them. Raw or hardboiled is what my cat likes, but my other cat doesn't even notice ;)

When I make something using canned tuna, I drain the water in a little dish and give that to my cat. Your just going to dump out the water, anyway, so why not?

I also give her those store bought cat treats too :lol:

I have one cat who is absolutely obsessed with wet dog food :shock: She got a taste of it one day, and now every time we bring it out for my other dogs she goes CRAZY. Meows constantly, jumps on the counter, basically wont leave you alone until she gets her share.

This isn't unhealthy for them, right? Just want to make sure

If just a taste now and then it's okay but dog food as a major food source is bad for a cat and vice versa. Their nutrition needs are different.

Huh, I've been told that dogs should never eat cat food, but cats can have a small amount of dog food.

My cat eats literally anything. I mean, potato chips, noodles, even some fruits and vegetables. She actually loves dog food too. When I feed the dogs and some kibbles get loose, she'll actually stop eating her food and go and eat it. Of course, none of that is nutritional for a cat, I was just sharing.

I'll occasionally feed my dogs raw chicken legs and give her some of the raw meat. I might try those pinky mice though, sounds like a good idea.

I just have to share real quick. I had some feeder fish that we never ended up doing anything with. We had them quarantined for a month and a half. After this thread, it gave me the idea to give them to Daisy as a treat. I put one in a bowl next to her food dish and she spent some time trying to scoop it out and playing with it. I want to try it with feeder mice also.

I have a hard time playing with her since every time I try to, Bubbles wants to join too and I don't know how to play with both, unless I'm actually playing with Bubbles and Daisy just pounces on her. She doesn't get her necessary cat hunting done since she's also indoor only and the treats that she can hunt down are an amazing idea. That way I also know that she's eating something healthy and not a diseased rat from a sewer.

I have one domestic that loves tomato sauce and black eyed peas. I think he ate a chick pea last night too.

If you want to feed live try insects like crickets. I'm sure she'd love chasing a cricket down. I'm a bit squeamish about giving a live rodent though you'll hear it screaming and crying as she plays with it and the can bite back. Hyzzie is a mouser and when she caught one before(wild house mouse) it bit her lip and bled all over.

My girl gets the cricket treatment twice a year. It was more until she started letting a few survive,
treating us to weeks of chirping all night long from deep within the furniture. For her birthday party each year I like to do a 'meatloaf' of ground turkey, sharp cheddar cheese and garlic, wrapped in strips of bacon. We're vegetarians here, so it's always a big scene with the meat. :lol:

During the Sumer my dad and I go salmon fishing on the Fraser river, I catch a nice big fish, cut it up, and cook up lunch for myself and the cats when I get home. Salmon is great for them when it's cut well, and they eat it up!
