Cooking will kill essential nutrients that cats require, such as taurine, so as SCM stated, raw is a better option. Cats have very specific dietary needs, unlike dogs, so following a prey model diet is extremely important.

This is the recipe that I use:

Some quality canned food that is readily available here in Ontario are:

Wellness, grain free (probably the easiest to find)
Nature's Variety Instinct (not Prairie)
Organics by Nature
Go
Weruva
