Green cow Tripe?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Is this a good food inticer for cats? Right now I'm using it to convince Bindi that dead mice are good to eat. Lately I have bee using Tuna water for the same effect but I heard its bad for Cats.

I have to put tuna water or a bit of sardines or something with tripe to get mine to eat the tripe!! Is stinky too!! But i think they adapt to it. I think (although sorry if i'm wrong) that tunas not good to feed often due to the magnesium levels but i don't think a little does any harm.

ah ok. I have recently switched mine to a raw diet but in order to get them to eat certian food i have to use tuna water or more often i use sardines mashed in. I haven't found any info saying sardines are bad. You think they are ok? They generally have a balance of raw rabbit mine with bone ground in, chicken, beef, occassionally lamb (but they're not too keen). They also have liver, heart tripe etc but this is particularly where i have to mix some sardines! Also they have a little veg blended with sardines. They still have kibble down as one is a bit picky!!! Any advice v. welcome. And I'd like to know other peoples views on the fish aspect.

My vet has a sign a sardine a day keeps the vet away... Make sure to buy the ones in good oils like olive.. I too have a raw eater who likes fish

I've got a fish lover who hates poultry. I limit his fish intake to fish cat food, except for special occasions, and try to give him a little fish mixed with lots of meat, e.g., 96% chicken with 4% calamari or shrimp, or 50% chicken and 50% salmon. He really prefers dry cat food, so I figure/hope the benefits of wet outweigh the potential danger of too much fish.

I dont like the tribe it stinks, I'm going to try stardene oil. Feeding raw is a very mature and wise choice dont worry what your friends think Pawsandwhiskersh ttp://www.thecatsite.com/forums/images/smilies/wink.gif
