Over here, we waste a lot of good food (meat) fed to cats..just think of all the starving folks in Africa who go to bed hungry when you feed your cat or dog. - tele
---------------------


They don't put the good stuff in cat food. It's all the stuff that I throw out when I'm cleaning fish I caught myself. For instance they put the heads, guts, hearts, esophagus, and from the tuna they put the dark red line that runs down the sides.

Dog food has chicken heads, feet, beaks, esophaguses and tracheas, lungs, kidneys, etc. in it. In fact the cheaper brands of dog food has "meat and bone meal" which is made from tankage which is like condemned cows and horses and god knows what else in it. When I used to work at the Vet School all the stuff that went out the back of Necropsy got sent to the rendering plant and turned into meat and bone meal.

So, if you'd like start eating the stuff they put in dog and cat food I'm sure I could hook you up. I got a friend in East Tennessee that runs a small custom slaughterhouse and we could arrange for you to stop by there and carry home some guts and cow heads the next time your passing through there.
