|Full-time mouse? Better than part-time, I suppose. (I had to look up f/t to find out what it really means.)
Hate to burst everyone's bubble, but my former moggy brother/sister duo LOVED Kentucky Fried Chicken (but only with the skin removed). They got it twice a year, on Christmas and on their birthday. They would grab their chicken part and retreat into separate corners, growling and snarling at anyone or anycat who came near enough to snatch away their delicious treat. I think that this aggressive response has less to do with raw than with "Delicious! And it's MINE! All mine!" Which leads to the conclusion that cats acting like this when they eat raw are really enjoying it. (But they may also enjoy KFC.)
This is OT, but it occurred to me that a raw diet for cats is a lot like the Atkins diet for humans. I guess we humans have to worry about things like salmonella, but humans do eat raw fish (Japan), raw beef, raw horse meat (Japan and elsewhere), and occasionally raw chicken (Japan). Certainly our cavepeople ancestors must have eaten raw meat before they discovered fire. And don't people eat raw chickens in voodoo rites? Hmm...but I think I'll leave the f/t mice to the cats and snakes, thank you very much.
