So as you know, we have a feral cat. She is the least picky feline you will ever meet. Her daily catches are usually, but not limited to: mice, gophers, quail, random song birds, lizards, and snakes. She was starving when we first found her (had worms which were sucking up all her nutrients) and so she eats absolutely anything. However as some of you know, she recently came home with a foxtail lodged in her eye - she hasn't been able to hunt like she used to. She's much more alert outside and she tends to stay close to our house, rather than roam the property (8 acres).
I'm worried about her lack of nutrients right now. Normally I give her some scraps just to give her some weight, but since she isn't catching anything, she's not getting the organs which are vital.
Where do you buy whole prey for your felines?
I just made a purchase from:
I bought some hopper mice and frozen chicks. I heard that www.rodentpro.com had cheaper mice than Layne, but I was too lazy to make an account to find out (lololol).
I'd like to keep her meals whole prey if possible because that has been her diet for however long this girl has been here and it works for her - she has the most beautiful skin and coat and she loves her raw prey. This is my standard view every time I am trying to pre-package the dog's meals:
And she'll stay like that the entire time because she knows she is not allowed on the counter, but she smells the meat from a mile away! I love this little girl.
