Sorry for the repeat post but I had this in the Health and Nutrition and didn't receive any responses so I thought maybe it was in the wrong category. It's not really about feral cats but more so an issue that a feral might come across.
So, I was away for the weekend last weekend and when I came back found a mouse tail, foot, and part of a haunch on my kitchen floor. I'm pretty sure one or both of my boys ate the rest of it as I haven't found any other dismembered mouse pieces laying around my apartment. I wasn't too concerned as I know a lot of people feed their cat raw meat including mice so I figured they would be fine. Since then though, they have been eating like they've never been fed before. Normally, I feed them a bit of dry BG with about a quarter of a can each of BG wet which usually they'll munch on until the next meal time. They're a little over a year old. Since this weekend though, they have been eating everything in one sitting and begging for more. Could they have picked up worms or a disease from the mouse they ate? They're acting fine otherwise but I don't know how else to explain this sudden increase in appetite. If the mouse had eaten poison and they ate it, would the poison be affecting them as well? I feel like they would be acting weird instead of just eating more if that were the case.
Again, sorry for the repost and if this is in the wrong category, I'm just trying to figure out if this is something I should be concerned about. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
