Our two have always ignored any scraps of raw meat or fish we've offered them, so we haven't attempted to put them on a raw food diet. They both seem quite healthy on what we are buying for them, a high quality cat food in both dry and canned format.
However, recently one of them (possibly both), has started actually eating the mice they catch in the back yard. :surprise:
On the one hand, it's one less rodent corpse to toss over the back fence for the ravens and crows to eat, on the other hand, I wonder if I need to be worried about parasites. They both had a bad reaction to last year's dose of the dab-on dewormer.
Any thoughts?

Yes, you need to be concerned about worms.

I'd be a little concerned about the mice possibly eating rat poison someone may be using.
