Thanks Penny, excellent article and helpful with the cat problem too. I read some articles on bone disease and it sounded very painful and took a lot of treatment and recovery time to rehabilitate.

Ours won’t touch wet food tried dog and cat in several flavours – stopped the mealworms, we’re feeding a mix of hedgehog and cat biscuits. Didn’t know why no fish food just read as others that it wasn’t suitable but to be fair ours do go a rummaging round the pond so they may be getting pond life from in there in the summer (no fish in there though).
