Can someone point us to a good web site that explains the frankenprey model raw diet? We thought it was feeding bones, organs, and meat in a ratio similar to that of a mouse's body and no extra vitamin/mineral supplements but someone on a cat board said that was wrong shrug The person said that bones, organs, and meat mixed together is not nutritonally complete and you MUST add extra vitamins and minerals shrug

There are different opinions but in theory, if you're feeding the correct proportions of muscle meat, bone, liver and other organ, you are feeding a nutritionally complete diet. It's best to get as much variety as possible in your protein sources to cover your bases, but you shouldn't need any supplements.

I thought the Frankenprey model was feeding whole animals (defrosted)? Or live feeder mice?

That's Whole Prey. Frankenprey refers to the act of 'piecing' together a whole animal to create the illusion of whole prey. So, for example, with Frankenprey to get as close to a whole chicken as possible you would get ahold of legs, wings, organs and whatnot all individually and feed versus just giving them a whole mouse.
