I just have to comment on this raw diet thread.
I definitely am not knowledgable enough to try a raw diet for my crew, but decided I would give them a special treat with some raw chicken wings once.
I bought a package of chicken wings at the store and hurried home thinking the cats would be so happy to have such a treat.
I gathered them around and said "look what mom has for you!"
They looked and sniffed and then gave me a look like "What are you, nuts?"
One of the outside guys gnawed a little and left it lay. The dog loved them.
I also tried some packaged frozen raw meat by Prairie that has all the balanced num-nums and only one of the outside cats ate a little bit of that.
My guys are definitely very domestic and seem to feel I was treating them shoddy by offering them such a fare.
They too like their quality dry food to go along with their junky canned and their vet sees no problems with their health and usually comments on their thick shiney coats.
They also catch their rodents and bugs to torture and some consider them snacks,
but this mom of many furbabies has given up on bringing home any raw treats.
