Simple and Healthy Homemade Cat Food Recipe

By W. P. Allen

Natural Health Guide
for Dogs & Cats


An increasing number of pet owners are choosing to switch from commercially produced pet foods to a more natural diet for their pet, even going to the extent of using a homemade cat food recipe in order to make more natural, healthy food for their cat than what is offered by their pet store.

Homemade cat food diets can work well for those who have pets with specific nutritional needs as well. As with any change to your cat's diet, consult with your vet before beginning to use homemade cat food recipes - not all cats may be able to have a homemade diet due to medications or underlying health problems.

Keep in mind before choosing a homemade cat food recipe that there are ingredients that must be avoided - onions, pork, chocolate, milk, raw eggs (cooked eggs are fine), fish or bones. All of these ingredients are deleterious to your cat's health. What you should know is that cats require a diet which is very high in protein; five times greater than a dog's protein requirements. Tuna should also be avoided or used in very small quantities due to the mercury content in most commercially produced tuna.

So what should go into a homemade cat food recipe? Ground meats and small amounts of vegetables along with supplements and flavorings like kelp, garlic and brewer's yeast all make for a healthy diet for your cat. One sample recipe follows:

(Cook these all together for an easier preparation and cleanup afterwards)

4oz meat, either beef or poultry 1 tbsp. carrot 1 tbsp. cottage cheese 1 tbsp. sunflower oil.

Flavorings (kelp powder, garlic powder, nutritional yeast powder) only in small amounts - maybe a pinch. This recipe will produce about one to two servings for an average adult cat; adjust the amount of ingredients up or down as needed to produce more food. You can refrigerate the leftovers, but the same rules apply as for leftovers you would eat yourself - use or freeze leftovers within a few days after making.

As you can see, it can be easy to make a healthy diet for your cat at home all by yourself. You won't have to worry about all of the additives and byproducts employed by the commercial cat food industry and can finally feel good about what your pet eats. By using a healthy homemade cat food recipe, you can make home made cat food which will keep your pet in good health and appeal to their tastes.
