No raw egg whites for cats. It has a toxin in it that is killed when partially cooked. I only add the yolks for their vit B. Egg whites are an important protein component for cats who need low phosporus, though.

I average about 50-60 cents for 5.5 oz made with bulk buying of pork chops, chicken legs with thighs attached and chicken breasts when on sale at no frills. I add chicken liver/hearts. I pay $2.30 to $2.70 for a can of Instinct (plus tax) for 5.5 oz can. I do buy lots of chicken breasts when on sale, I never pay regular price for those. Ask your local butcher for saved pieces that fall on the floor and buy at a reduced rate .

I grind by hand (well DH does) and Jasper and Rose eat chicken breast bones for their teeth, Puddles will never eat the bones, and still trying to get Sweet Pea to eat them.
