Cat Food Recipes
Cats basically require a diet of meat such as chicken, beef, lamb, turkey, fish and sardines; some vegetables such as carrots, zucchini, broccoli, corn, cauliflower, peas, potato and rice and a source of calcium such as milk or cheese. Use organic whenever possible. If you want your cats to have all of the nutrients they need, avoid artificial additives, and start them on a natural diet.
A natural diet is closer to the diet they would have in the wild. This is better for your pet than giving her the usual cat food formulations.
One of the reasons that obesity rates are up among our pets is because we are over feeding them and they are becoming overweight.
So if you want to provide your pet with a better diet, avoid highly processed artificial foods and avoid flavorings, colorings, soy meal and give them a natural diet instead.
Pet owners should consult their veterinarians about a reliable vitamin tablet to supplement the homemade menu.
When using commercial pet foods, it’s nice to add fresh,
natural ingredients into their diets on a daily basis.
at a time
-a tsp of cottage cheese.
-a tsp of flaxseed meal.
-a tsp finely grated carrot.
-a poached or soft-boiled -organic egg -chopped.
-1/8 tsp of cod liver or whole fish oil a couple times a week.
3 lbs. -organic chicken parts – can include giblets.

8 carrots, scrubbed but not peeled, chopped small.

Wash chicken then cover with water in a large stew pot. Cut vegetables into pieces and add to pot. Add rice. Cook until chicken almost falls off the bone and vegetables are tender. Completely de-bone the chicken using extra caution in removing tiny sharp bones like that which is included on leg bone, as this easily falls off with meat from leg.
This is extremely important, as cooked chicken bones can splinter and cause serious intestinal damage. Pour the stew into a blender and blend until mixture is bite-sized. Freeze in meal-sized plastic bags. (For old or very young, cats process till fairly smooth).
