I left Dexter with the boyfriend this afternoon and now am really worried as he has given him some raw bacon from the FRIDGE to eat. I have heard that raw pork is not good for cats especially when below room temp. Will Dexter be ok? The boyfriend said that he cut off and thew away all the fat and just gave him a little bit of the meat. He thought it would be ok as he has seen me give Dexter raw mince and thought that a tiny bit of bacon would be a nice treat, i have to stress that usually he is the perfect cat parent he just gave in to Dexters purrleeeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzeee face (this is the face he makes when he pretends he hasnt been fed in three weeks, its very difficult NOT to give him something.....i just wish it was one of his iams treats and not BACON!!)
This was about an hour ago, i put Dexter in front of his water bowl and he has had a drink and is now prowling. I dont think that it was a large enough amount to do much harm but am still worring.
Let me know your thoughts and if you could let me know exactly what it is about pork that is so damaging to cats, i cant seem to find that much info on the net.
