I realized for all my asking questions and beginning it with my kitties, I don't think I have spoken with anybody who actually does feed only whole prey.
What sorts of prey items do you use? So far I have given Tucker pinkies(he is up to four a day with his wet food. YAY). Kyra won't touch the stuff yet but I'll get her yet. lol
The next step with Tucker will be fuzzies, still small, but they have fur so he will realize that things with fur are food. I went and bought seven mice the other day, as I am going to be raising most of the cats' food myself. I'll probably have to order more frozen long before my mouse colony is big enough to support the snake and two cats.
I plan on raising meat rabbits both for myself and the animals as soon as I move into a place with a yard. I also have a pair of gerbils, but they have yet to do the deed. I fully intend to vary the prey items as much as possible with insects, mammals, lizards, birds, and the occasional fish as a treat only.
The only information I have gotten is on Frankenprey sites, stating whole prey is the best and easiest, and people on here saying the same, that they do frankenprey but whole is better.
Does anybody feed in this method? I would love some first hand experience, and know of at least one other member here that is thinking of whole prey.
