What were the ingredients, how did you make the food, what amount was served and how was it served (warm, cold, with warm or cold water mixed in, etc.). Also, where did you get the ingredients and have your cats eaten them before?

served cold for one, the other takes hers lukewarm ( picky cats)

got all the meat from the butcher. Yes they have had this before, which is why im concerned the meat is bad.

If you have fed these ingredients before, in this type of mix, and not had any issues with it, I would offer it for two, maybe three meals (not in a row, if you can). If the cats throw up the food every time and your gut is telling you there may be something wrong with the batch, I'd follow my gut and toss the batch.

I've only done this once, and it was with rabbit (which is known to spoil quickly), but the whole point of home-preparing raw food for our cats is to provide the highest-quality diet we can. Feeding something your intuition says could be iffy is counter to the basic reason for raw-feeding, right?

If more than one cat is turning up her nose and refusing the food altogether, I think I'd definitely toss it. Cats can tell if a food is spoiled beyond what their built-in defense mechanisms can handle. I threw that rabbit away because even one of my regular scarfers walked away from it. At that point, even though it didn't smell bad to me, I knew something was wrong with it.

I don't confuse this with someone being picky - that happens all the time and I ignore it, or use an enticement to deal with it. :~}
