Raw Food Diet > Electric Vs. Manual Meat Grinders

I've been researching into making raw food at home for my American Eskimo dog and two (recently rescued) cats. I've read through most of the sites recommended on this forum, as well as some others, but I don't see a lot of focus on meat grinders and what type someone new to raw should buy.

Most of the sites mention expensive 150 dollar and up electric grinders, rather than the old fashioned hand crank versions. Is there a reason for this aside from the ease of use? Do the manual meat grinders not handle bone as well as the electric ones do? I'd be very interested in hearing from people with experience with both types.

Aside to the obvious (it being much more expensive) - are there any other cons I should know about when purchasing an electric model? What are the pros to electric as opposed to manual? Thanks so much to any and all who answer - I like to do thorough research before jumping into something, especially when my babies are involved. =)

We had a classic collar on our female, but once we introduced our male to the home we were too afraid of it getting snagged during playtime. I've heard conflicting things about the breakaway collars so I haven't invested in any yet.

Cats and a Clean Home > Lets talk about "CAT Rooms"

My parents really love making cat toys and trees for Blue and I to play on. A few of the cool ideas they've come up with for a cat room would be kitty cubby holes for us to hide in, attached to the walls. Something similar to this:

Only made from wood, instead of fabric. They're not certain on how they're going to go about attaching them to the walls, but they definitely want to incorporate something like this into a cat room.

Another cool idea my mom found online was for cat ladders. I love to climb, as does my adopted brother, so mom thinks a cat ladder would be great fun for me. Here's a cool link mom found:
