Anonymous:But if meat is sold for human consumption it should be safe for cats too no? I mean if it was harmful to cats it would definitely be harmful to humans too and I can't imagine you live in such a place where meat is THAT dangerous to buy. Also I think cats won't eat meat that doesn't smell or taste nice and low quality meat will usually be so.

As for cooking or boiling I've always heard that while boiling it can help take out most of the dangerous stuff I never knew freezing was enough but you know better. I know about the ground meat issue you never know what's inside that stuff really.. I will be going for pure animal parts I think that's the safe way I still can't know what they fed it or injected into it but at least I know what it is
As for where I'm gonna buy it I'm not sure I will have to look around for a place I can trust. Where I come from you have small shops all over that sell only meat and you can trust them but since here in the US all meat comes from factory's you never know. I wonder if natural food stores sell meat.. probably not lol
Thank you alfinnlay! I will read through those sites and decide how I'm gonna go about this. Eliot is all about trying new stuff although he is never allowed to he always trys so I'm sure he wont give me a hard time
I was also looking into some shops that specialize in pet raw meat and don't involve any antibiotics or hormones in them, But they are quite expensive so I will have to look into that some more and see how I do financially in the next couple of months if I do good I might just order it from one of them. It's going to take me awhile anyways because I need to know exactly what parts, how much etc because he is very sensitive to food as it is so I think just giving him stuff is not a very good way to go about it.
There must be something in your area too. Then you can contact them and ask if they work with individuals and if they can do the necessary tests for you.
People are waiting to help.
