The Soncino translates, "...and throw [Raba's duck's] entrails to a cat," with the note that it was Yom Tov and the entrails would not have been eaten then, though they could have been eaten on the previous day. Is the original less like "intestines" than "viscera"?
Heimish of Raba to have cats around.


the blood of the blood-let beast doesn't protect against impurity; rather, since the goal of the letting was to heal the body, and not because you wanted the blood, the blood itself is not 'mekabel tumah', i.e., not a conductor of tum'ah like it would be under normal circumstances.
