I'v eowned cats my whole life. In the last few years I have gotten into a lot of other animals and run a small reptile breeding business. Today I was feeding my cat and thinking "Wow, this is my favorite animal and I have no idea what I am feeding it." So I did a little research like I would do for myu other pets and found out that I'm not the only one thinking this. Whole prey items. Why didn't I ever think of that? Well, I have a large breeding colony of mice, rats, minnows, and goldfish. If I were to feed my cat these items (which I know are clean) what else would she need. Would I be supplementing with cat food or is there something missing that I'm not thinking of? As far as I know, a carnivore doesn't need anything besides whole prey items, right? Sure works for all my carnivorous reptiles. What about my rodents' diet. They are fed on labaratory grade rodent chow. Is there anything in this that my cat should not be eating?

I know that this has probably already been discussed on this forum but I don't have time to search through the archives right now. Any info. and/or opinions would be great.

Thanks.
