|Oh no! Are these silly ASFs as picky as I am??|
Okay, so maybe not everyone has rats. But there's always use for that food that didn't come out quite right, or that you wouldn't even consider dirtying your fork with.
Things like veggies, some fruits, and raw, or lightly cooked, non-greasy meat can be fed to your pups, or maybe even your cat, if s/he isn't too picky!
If none of your pets like vegetables, and you have a lot of local wildlife, your neighborhood rabbits would definitely enjoy a less-than-fresh(but not rotten!) head of romaine lettuce.
Grainy foods - Bread, crackers, rice, and so on - can be fed to wild birds. If there's ever any bread that goes stale before I can eat it, I take a trip to a local pond and feed the geese and ducks. Don't overdo it though, they need room for the healthy food that they can find in the wild!
All non-meat, non-greasy foods can be composted, which is one of the reasons why it's a great idea to cook healthy, or even become a vegetarian. (Don't feel too bad, I haven't quite gotten their either - lol)
|Finally, a brave soul.|
Today, all of our ASFs, rats, and mice got some yummy, healthy, whole-grain pumpernickel bread because, well, to be honest - I didn't like it. As long as you are feeding your pets and local wildlife wholesome, healthy snacks, it's great for them and it keeps more things out of the land fills. Too bad I didn't think to post this on Earth Day!
