I've seen a lot of conflicting info about raw food for cats. In general I decided against it myself because of the potential for dangerous bacteria like e. coli and for parasites like worms. I think if it's not a good idea for humans to eat raw meat, maybe cats shouldn't either. I know feral/wild cats eat raw birds & mice etc., but it's a risk they have no choice about, y'know.

so boil it and then put it in the fridge this way it is cold he does not like it hot this way you kill all the bacteria and harmful germs and he gets it cold then it will be safe and he should eat it.

With bird flu, raw meat of any sought becomes suspect. If your cat goes out she would be hunting, so she would be eating raw meat and immunized to it. However if she stays in and is not used to raw meat, then she could have a bad reaction to it. Try cooking it in the microwave for i about 1 min, so the germs are killed and the raw taste remains. That't what i did with my cat, she too loves chicken liver.

I don't think itll hurt your cat unless the meat has been sitting out. make sure to keep it cold and sniff it to make sure it smells fresh before feeding it to your cat.

It is never good to feed you animal raw food like that. You risk contamination to your cat and yourself! They can get Salmonella, E. coli, Camphylobactor, etc., and these bacteria will be shed in the feces- and will contaminate the envirionment that the feces comes in contact with. So it is up to you- is it worth the risk?

I wouldn't dare to give my cat raw meat but he is an inside cat and my female cat would just look at me with disgust if I offered to her. lol
