generously given me after they caught a bird or lizard but they don't eat cows 
or sheep or pigs or intestines with the crap in them and that's what commercial 
by-products are. No one is going to empty and wash out intestines before adding

by-products when they eat the whole prey, but they are getting all the rest, 
too, which they don't get with just by-products (where the good stuff has been 
taken out for human consumption). By-products contain much less nutrition and 
are often indigestible. Note that cats also get some minerals by eating the 
dirt that's on the animals. Guess that's why some feral feeders just put the 
food on the ground. :-) > > > > That has always surprised me when people report 
that their cat doesn't eat the organs, as those (exept for feces-filled 
intestines) are the most nutritious things in the prey's body, and also (I've 
read that) the big cats eat the organs first and bury the rest of the body for 
the next day. > > > > On Fri, Oct 12, 2012 at 12:22 PM, wrote: > > While we are
