Recipes for home made cat food

anntn6b(z6b TN)May 29, 2009

Now that a significant portion of the feline herd has bamboozled Larry into believing that they will just die if they don't have some moist catfood each day, I've looked at the cost.

It's not that terrible an expense, and I'm not sure that the cats would be happy if moist cat food were served without the sound of a can being opened, but I've got a food processor and I need some recipes for ballanced cat meals.

Ferretface, Taffy, Twitchit, Elf, P.I.T.A., Splash and Clyde thank you.

You can buy beef and chicken breasts for what Fancy Feast costs. I've fed our cats nothing but raw stew beef, chicken and fish in the past but I don't anymore except when they come around looking for handouts when I'm cooking. I always cut them off some and there are also leftovers you can give them. I keep a bowl full of Meow Mix for them all the time and then give them whatever else we have but very seldom canned cat food. If I buy canned cat food usually they wont eat it but for some reason they love Meow Mix.

I don't have recipes but a visit to the pet forum will most likely give you some. I am glad to feed my one cat Wellness pouches and the new Purina Indoor Dry.
PS, love the name Twitchit from Beatrix Potter!
PSS, also glad the cat has quit throwing up for now

I never read Beatrix Potter, Twitchit earned her name because her tail twitches not just when she's irritated but even when she's asleep but not paw and mouth movement.

You should have seen the cats herding Larry into the kitchen yesterday morning. (I know ALL the jokes about the difficulty inherent in herding cats...this was a total turnaround.)

I love the herding Larry line. I wish you had made pictures. I'm there almost every morning and all I have are three. I just wish they understood about letting me sleep on holidays and weekends.

Your cats are Larry's bosses.
I just want to sleep with our kitty one night. I wouldn't care if she woke me gently with a paw. She sleeps with daughter.

Larry and Taffy have been chasing a mouse for about ten minutes now.
I have not laughed out loud at both of them, but I'm trying to think sad thoughts.

I woke up this morning with a headless mouse on the floor next to the bed. All our cats have done this... eat the heads of their victims. Cat food makers should take notice or maybe they have already.
