|Hi Kira and Mocha's mom! I personally wouldn't worry about how much of the mouse she/they eat until you've fed them a few times. Even barn cats sometimes leave bits of their prey lying around; i.e, next time she might eat more or less of it. Oh, and of course it's ok if they eat the hair and fur of their "prey", just like barn, feral, and wild cats do around the world!
I've 1 cat that eats whole prey, Chaucer. So far I've only fed him quail chicks, which he loves very much, feathers and all. Sometimes he leaves a wing or two behind, sometimes he leaves feet, sometimes he leaves some mix of the two. Unfortunately, the other two cats wont' touch the quail. I've got to get some small feeder mice to try with him.
I'm sorry that I can't remember everything that you've previously posted, but I suppose you've mixed the meat chunks into Kira's canned food to see if that gets her to eat them? Has she eaten anything raw other than the mouse; does she eat the rad cat? It would be preferable to get her to eat a variety of things in case she decides one day that she is bored of her food. Try cutting the chunks into a variety of sizes or you could try a "smellier" meat like lamb or lamb heart.
