Though perhaps part of that is been I've been vegetarian long enough that meat smells bad to me.
And as an aside for those that think feeding vegan food to ones cat is abusive. I agree that it's probably not as ideal for her as, say, live mice, but it's quite believable to me that it is at least as good as what commonly passes as cat food.
In unrelated news I found the IBM Java 1.4 SDK package, and so I reinstalled linux on my tibook. Hopefully the java environment will work well enough so I won't have to switch back to OS X.
