This used to be a shaky issue for me as I'm a strict vegan - however I am totally understanding of my cats needs and would never impose my ethics on her.
I was wondering if any Canadians out there know of any source in Canada (I live in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario) that sells frozen mice or birds that I could give to my Boo (once she starts taking to raw meat)? I do NOT want to feed her live mice, as that would break my heart to watch
However, heartless as it sounds, I would have pretty much no qualms about feeding her whole prey if it were euthanized and already dead. I'm really not squeamish about it and could do it for her in a heartbeat. Of course I doubt she would eat it as of now as she's picky as heck, but in time I'm hoping to give her whole prey, as I think this would be the most healthy of diets for her.
I have seen sites that offer mice in bulk online but I'd really rather not spend a bunch on ordering a bag of mice only to have it sit in the freezer cause kitty isn't interested. (Do you think she'd revert back to her instinct and gobble it up? Or would it be as repulsive to her as chunks of meat?
) Boo has always lived in an apartment or city house all her life so probably wouldn't know what do with a mouse if she saw one.
However, this is my ultimate goal for her so I'd like to be prepared.
