Skip to comments.Is it ok to feed my cats raw bacon?
Posted on 12/24/2004 11:51:13 AM PST by little bus
One day, my cats were hungry and I didn't have anything in the house to feed them except raw bacon. They loved it! I continued to give them raw bacon each day and now it's their favorite food (they won't eat raw sausage, though). In fact, now they don't want anything else. I've tried different foods on them - vienna sausage, potted meat, canned mackerel, etc., but they want their bacon. Someone told me this might not be good for the cats, but they seem healthy. What do you think? I see cats on this sight sometimes when I surf, so maybe you know something here.
Please, whatever you do, don't let them get a taste of raw, human flesh ...
Save the cat food for Grandma and feed your cats bacon. She is going to need it after Bush gets done with her.
I have a feeling you are going to see some kitties very shortly.
Why not, cats are natural hunters and kill and eat raw animals. My barnyard cat will not eat anything that is cooked, so she gets only raw pieces of meat. The other cat, he's just a bum...
They can get raw troll here at Free Republic just about any time.
How about fried okra?
Al, the amazing wonder viking kitty, just lifted her head and growled audibly. I wouldn't give her any raw meat just now.
Merry Christmas and welcome.......
Too late - they're born with that...
Seriously though. Are the cats Jewish ?
Any Hebrew heritage in them??? Better check first....;>)
Merry Christmas and Prayers for Our Troops
How could it hurt? I mean, I feed my dog raw cats and he's fine.
You are worried about an animal eating raw bacon when they are able to eat raw rats and raw birds, feathers and all? Give me a break, have you no common sense at all? (are are you just bored)
How would you tell? They're wearing yarmeowlkas?
Green Eggs and Ham à la Sam-I-Am
1-2 tablespoons of butter or margarine
4 slices of ham
2 tablespoons of milk
1-2 drops of green food coloring
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
What You'll Need
knife, medium-size mixing bowl, wire whisk or eggbeater, large frying pan, spatula, aluminum foil, serving plates
1. With an adult's help, melt a teaspoon of butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add sliced ham and brown until edges are slightly crisp. Remove the ham from the pan, cover with aluminum foil, and set aside.
2. In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Beat with a whisk until frothy. Then add 1-2 drops of green food coloring until you reach the desired shade of green.
3. With an adult's help, heat a tablespoon of butter or margarine in a large frying pan over medium heat until the butter begins to sizzle. Then add the egg mixture to the pan.
4. Stir the egg mixture with a spatula until the eggs are firm and not too runny.
5. Transfer the eggs to individual plates. Garnish with a sprig of parsley. Add the ham prepared earlier. Serve with toast or warm rolls.
Feeds 4 hungry green-egg lovers. YUM
thats one way to keep them from turning Muslim.
Like raw beef and fish too, well ham too.
There's a cat in my neighborhood who likes raw squirrel.
Just that bacon is loaded with sodium and stuff that might not be good for their little bods.
But bacon isn't exactly raw, is it?? Isn't it smoked or processed some way??
Many times I have chewed on uncooked bacon, mostly the fat part.
Am I going to get that parasite that guy had in his brain on top of the car?
No, the trolls usually get cooked by a good zot pretty fast.
I forget. I think maybe cats are mostly libertarian but with the strong elitist attitude they might be caviar liberals.
In my opinion it's ok to feed a cat anything ;-)
No, trolls around here tend to get overcooked by the high voltage.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA !
Yes republicans want to starve people!! That is how we'll get more votes you moron
Are their forepaws intact.
Sure. Just make sure you tenderize it with aspirin.
I`m sure it won`t be appreciated by some but sorry that`s funny.
Feed 'em the bacon.
He will also eat the head off a rabbit and kills mountain beavers just for the trophy.
You guys are right. So the cats have to move pretty speedily to get it raw.
Welcome to Free Republic.
I'm a member that predates the need for sarcasm tags, newbie.
I have a Springer Spaniel that will not eat ham or bolonga (sp?)
under any circumstance.
My two cats love chili, of course, it's cooked. I never feed them raw meat. I'm afraid they might chew my toes off in the middle of the night!
LOL - now the rest of the folks in the call center are doing prairie dog impressions trying to see what I was laughing about.
You like Gord's Gold too? Great - I'm not alone!
We feed our dogs BARF... which means bones and raw food. They thrive and have wonderful clean teeth and fresh breath. Their poops are small and break down in the backyard quickly.
I looked into BARF for cats. They require some weird additive (it's probably in raw mouse guts which is not easily available in stores) so I got some of the suppliment and tried mixing it with ground liver, gizzards, etc. They hated it. They much prefered the IAMS dry cat food.
Definitely NOT kosher.
Is it Kosher?
