Raw catfood

I've had a minor victory and a setback in the raw feeding thing. The biggest trouble right now is that I'm having a tough time getting good books on the subject. I'm also looking for a vet thats raw supportive so that I can ask all of the questions that no one seems to answer - namely, what about the bacteria that comes on the raw food?

So, the victory. The cats love raw egg. I mixed it with their canned food and they scarfed it down, eating the egg and leaving the food when full. This is really good, as I've had no luck with any chicken other than cooked and that with only one of the cats.

The bad? My little monkey broke into the new bag of kibble and ate some of the plastic. This has ripped up her insides to the point where I found blood on the bedspread. She's also not eating right now, probably due to the impaction of the plastic. This is very bad, but I'm going to give it a couple of days. If she's bleeding, it's because she's passing some of the plastic, and she may pass the rest. Better a little scraping than surgery. Damn stubborn cat.
