Question dog stealing cats kills?

my dog has stolen my cats live kills from her and swallow them whole

DO you think breeding mice or rats for my dog is a bad idea? I know it sounds bad but i mean i have seen this happen a lot my cat will have a rat or mouse and soon as ii get my cat to drop it my dog has gobbled it up.

Sometimes mice have got in my house my cat will catch it and just start beating it at night and then i turn on the light and see my dog swallowing it?

She swallows it? IT has really pissed my cat off before and made her furious.

If I were going to grow feeders for my dog,I would choose rabbits. I wouldn't give them live prey though.

I think it's cruel to breed mice just to be toys for your animals. And if anything it would encourage your dog to take more mice away from your cat since you'd be teaching it to eat mice.

It's probably more humane for your dog to swoop in and eat it quickly anyway instead of letting your cat prolong its death. Your cat probably wouldn't eat it anyway, cats seem to like killing things and then just leaving their dead bodies around. If it mattered that much to your cat when your dog takes away her mouse she'd figure out a way to prevent that.

If you are feeding a raw diet then you could add those to the list of proteins.

Just so you know, breeding mice and rats is VERY smelly!! Also, you need to know how to kill the rats/mice before feeding them to your dog (or cat).

And lastly, if any of them escape (at trust me, they will be trying to) you could end up with a house full of vermin!

I second the vote for rabbits if you really want to raise something for your animals to eat.
