|I also agree, let her eat all she wants for mice. She deserves it
Raw can only help a cat with cancer also - so maybe she just instinctively knows that. With cancer, you want a cat to eat as healthy of food as possible, with as few of preservatives and additives as possible. You also want to lessen any unnecessary stress to the organs so it helps reduce stress by feeding raw. Since cooking does change the structure of the food, it ends up making it harder for a carnivore to digest, on top of the added carb levels that most cat foods have. Unfortunatly, carbs also feed cancer, so the less carbs the better.
I hope she will continue to be willing to eat the feeder mice. Else, something that may be tempting to eat, is 9Lives Flaked Tuna in Sauce. Cats typically love that food - at least if they love things like tuna. It is only 1.65% carbs on a dry matter basis, which is the second lowest food I have found, Before Grain 96% beef is the lowest of all.
I hope this helps and that you enjoy all the time you get with her. Spoil Chloie all she wants
