    People are bagging processed cat food but it does at least have the full range of vitamin and minerals in it. Minced meat does not. Cats in the wild eat the whole of a small animal including stomach contents so get a very varied diet.

    I now buy my cat the highest protein /fat dried cat food i can, and supplement with pouches of wet food. She has never enjoyed minced meat but is fond of a very little raw meat or fish when I'm cooking. Smoked salmon being her favourite.

    I’m well aware of the shortcomings of mince, but it’s what he wants at present. He’s not eating much at home just now, so I m pretty sure he’s supplementing with whole baby rabbit, judging by mud on paws etc. And I’ve seen him eat other stuff around the garden. He is offered ‘proper’ cat food, but whacked me round the ankles two days ago for giving him that instead of mince. Then this morning, it’s all about dried food...

    I will be looking into the raw foods suggested on here, though.

    Christelle, have you tried the cat on an actual frozen raw commercial cat food? You could use the tuna the cat does like to gradually wean it over by slowly altering the proportions from 90:10 in favour of tuna, until it is only eating the commercial frozen raw? I share RM's concerns that proffering different kinds of 'real food' doesn't mean the cat is getting everything it needs if this is only muscle meat (although I'd still go frozen raw over anything tinned or dried).

    Incidentally, might be a bridge too far for most of you, but you can easily buy whole frozen mice of varying sizes and ages from reptile food suppliers. A reluctant raw feeder might be rather happy to be given a defrosted one of these. I know people who give them to their dogs occasionally and they love them.

    I think my work here on the shopping trolley thread is probably done....
