Once or twice, no, it's not bad for them. But the cat may get the runs.
Over time, yeah, theoretically if you give a cat waaaaay too much liver you could cause vitamin A toxicosis, I suppose, but that's not very likely.
It is INEVITABLE that those new to raw will obsess about these things, worry that if the cat doesn't have a "complete" meal in every mouthful, the sky will fall, etc. I know - I was like that, too.
Just try to chill and over time you'll come to realize that it's not brain surgery. Before I started adding mice to the buffet, I fed cornish game hen quarters 3-4 meals a week, meaty meat meals every other meal, liver 2-3 meals a week, and kidney 2-3 meals a week. They did GREAT on this.
Feeding mice/whole prey seems ickier, I know, but it also takes all the guesswork out of things b/c you really ARE feeding the complete package. It's a good idea to keep that in your head as a possible end goal. Maybe you won't get there, but don't count it out entirely. I am vegan, and it took me 10 years to FINALLY take the plunge. Once I did, I went from ground to whole prey in 7 mos.
