Recipes for homemade cat food?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
OK, now that everyone is scared of all the purchased food, I thought we could share recipes for homemade cat food. Unfortunately, I don't know much, but I have boiled chicken and fish, ground it up in the food processor and added some oil to moisten it.

Any other ideas?

Check with a vet first

Recipe one

1/2 lb chicken( try for a white dark mix ( cooked.. boiled or fried seems to be tasty)

1/4 cup livers in this case chn

1/2 cup of cooked rice or oatmeal

1/2 oz to 2oz clams with juice( ie canned)

1/2 cup cooked sweet potato ( can increase to 3/4 to 1 cup and not use grain if desired)

1/4 cup ie 2oz olive soybean canola oil... i use olive

if this is sole food add

1/10 th of a human taurine supplement( most are 500mg)
1/10th b vitamin supplement
1/4 multi vitamin
600 mg of cal ( most capsule s are about this )

Ways to add variety

alternate brown , white , jasmine rices ... mine like brown

use beef venison lamb mutton or a cooked fish like salmon

add in some cooked potato s , carrots

for those needing extra cal s add less sweet potato and more meat

put all cooked parts into blender or food processor till either chunky or canned conscitancy

any questions Pm me again

Thanks sharkey! Not sure about the supplements specifically taurine. Where do I find that - with other human supplements? Dusty doesn't seem to like liver flavored cat food, but she loves chicken! I'll give it a try!
