    What do you think is in the sausage though? :)

    I would hazard a guess that the mice have a better quality of life than most farm animals - if they're stressed or overcrowded they eat their young don't they? So they need to be kept in decent sized cages and kept healthy.

    I know some snake owners that have their own 'breeder' mice and consider them as pets, but will use their offspring as food.

    It's pretty interesting as it raises lots of issues which most people don't often think about - how some animals are considered by some as 'pets' and others as an item of food on their plate with no feelings...

    I don't know how someone can keep an animal as a pet and then feed it to another animal. Being on rat forums which are mainly american they frequently tell stories of feeder rats in pet shops. Thankfully it is illegal in this country, though I know the practice still goes on.

    Conditions for rats / mice / guinea pigs etc bred for pet shops are dire enough, so I dread to think what they're like for snake food. And no, they don't have decent size cages or kept healthy! They are kept in very small plastic cases and bred over and over. (The rodents, not the snakes!)

    A snake seems a strange choice of pet for a veggie/vegan? (that's not a criticism by the way, just a curiosity!)

    Keeper of the hens

    I don't think it's illegal to feed live food as long as it's not for public entertainment (as if that could ever be - you'd have to be pretty sick), but thankfully in the UK frozen/thawed is the norm.

    In other countries (Germany and I think the US) it's practically impossible to buy frozen so it's all live feeding - I couldn't have done that.

    Why is it a strange pet? I do know what you mean, as I thought that when Scarlet first mentioned a snake, but the hens will eat bugs and worms and slugs, heck, we will even occasionally buy and serve meat to friends/family that visit (so we're not forcing veggie food on them if they don't want to try it).

    I'm going to research mice a bit - I just thought that breeding over and over was what mice did - in the wild or otherwise...

    Posted By: KatebShe feeds it sausage of some description. So ... the age old question of whether its better to feed him mouse or pig!

    If she was feeding it to her snake, they should have been 'snake sausages' - mice meat all mashed up. Snakes don't survive without the right meat...I just think of it as the same as other pets that need to eat meat :P

    And as for feeder mice living in bad conditions, yes, it's probably not good, but a lot of factory farmed animals are also kept in horrible conditions. Including the animals used for meat that probably goes into rat food, human food, any meat based food...it's not good, but it's no different from the rest. And like my dad said, if non-veggies are coming round, we get meat in for them...it's just the same.

    Not really, I want a dog some day and most dog food contains chicken! I've always wanted a snake, it's one of the few 'indoor' pets I'm allowed what with mum's allergies, especially one that should live for way over ten years. Most indoor allergy-okay pets are rodents, with a maximum life-span of 3/4 years!

    I forgot about your mom's allergies!

    I don't know what sort of sausage it was, and can't recall who told me , but the snake was surviving so maybe that's what it was.

    An internet (USA) buddy who has 2 rats has a roommate that has snakes. Her roomie is campaigning to promote frozen food. It is available, but is harder to get than live. She points out that live food can have mites, lice, bugs, etc, and also can fight back and cause a lot of injury to the snake.

    I don't think their living conditions are very good, but as you say, there are other 'food' animals kept in worse. And I think the mice are dispatched more humanely than any other meat product.

    I suppose the difference is that you can see what it is. I do eat meat (not a lot, but some!) but if someone said I had to start killing and preparing my own I couldn't do it. A joint of lamb doesn't look like a cute woolly thing that bounces around a field - whereas the mouse looks like a mouse!! (Obviously!!)

    I have met vegans before who insist on feeding their pets a meat-less diet which I believe to be wrong. We are able to digest and absorb alternatives whereas dogs and cats I don't believe can. I admire you for doing what's right by your pets but sticking by your own principles.

    Cheers Kate :)

    I couldn't ever feed live food to James :ack2: It's not fair on either of them - the prey because it's a horrible way to go, and James because like you said even a mouse can do serious injury. I've seen pics of a snake that wasn't hungry so didn't kill the mouse it was fed, and whilst the snake was sleeping in the night the mouse chewed off loads of its skin - nasty!

    Yeah i think that plays a big part...and a lot of people see mice as 'pet' animals, whereas others, such as chickens, don't really even count as animals they are just seen as 'food.' Don't think that really applies here though ;)

    Yes, degus are meant to be lovely pets. Have never handled them, but they have them at the garden centre. I think they like company, as (I think) chincillas do. The supervisor in the garden centre has a chincilla that's 16 years old - she's had it longer than her kids!

    Vicki. That is the best thing I have seen/heard you do!
    How could she be mad? You had solved both problems - you in tent but not in a dangerous place.

    Woman resuscitates chicken

    A woman saved a chicken by giving it the kiss of life.
    Marian Morris from Arkadelphia, Arkansas, resuscitated her brother's pet chicken Boo Boo after it was found floating face down in the family's pond.
    Mrs Morris, a retired nurse, said: "I breathed into its beak, and its eyes popped open. I breathed into its beak again, and its eyes popped open again.
    "I said, 'I think this chicken's alive now. Keep it warm.'"
    Boo Boo got her name because she is easily frightened. It is thought she flopped into the pond after being startled.
    She made a fully recovery.
