Just posted this on lasts years conversation. Oops….

We have 3 regular visitors each night and, while we know that some foods are bad, we mix the food.

Currently it is a handful of decent quality cat biscuits, small handful of peanuts, and a very small sprinkling of mealworms.

Initially we were just putting out lots of mealworms and they loved them, but after reading of the bone problems we stopped. However once we started putting out the cat biscuits, everything got eaten by the local cats and a young male fox. So we put a sprinkling of mealworms back in, and the cats and fox now won’t touch it at all….. they smell too bad i guess (?).

Is this acceptable? We’re still trying to find the right balance as they least prefer the cat biscuits
