I was just curious where you buy your frozen mice from and if anyone knows how they are killed? Can you get them at petsmart or petco?
Dead of COURSE. I got some from PetStupid last night (b/c I needed pinkies for Jonah ASAP). They sell a "brand" called Arctic Mouse and they come 6 to a box, with each one in individual tiny baggie.furryfriends251 said:Are the mice from petco alive or already dead and frozen when you get them?
Join the club! I'm VEGAN, so you can imagine how hard it was for me. I remind myself that canned/kibble is full of dead animals, too, but I have no control over the sourcing there. At least feeding raw I can get more humanely raised/killed meat to feed my obligate carnivores!~Siameseifuplz~ said:Thank you guys! I'm still toying with the idea, it does both me a bit to see them get eaten, we'll see. Eventually I'll probably end up trying it out.
Yup! My Calvin is so fast I have to feed him and Lincoln in separate rooms when I feed mice. They eat other food at about the same rate, but Calvin tosses his down and then grabs Lincoln's!furryfriends251 said:I gave a few mice too the two newest cats I have and they LOVED them. It is amazing how fast they can eat mice :lol:
Yes, PetStupid is ABSURD. Try http://www.hare-today.com. Depending on your location, their shipping (as long as you order 50 #s) is very reasonable. They only have large mice, though (which is fine if your cat is eating them well already -- usually have to start on smaller ones). If you don't want 50# of mice, you can get some chicks and other stuff as well. Their bone-in rabbit chunks are HUGELY popular w/ my guys. They also sell rabbit pieces (i.e., quartered rabbits, basically), which we will be trying soon.However at Petsmart the feeder mice are expensive! Or at least it is too me...$10.99 for 4 adult mice? I'll have to check for other sources. Shipping from rodentpro looks really expensive
