Help ! Cat home-COOKED Recipes Needed.

Are there any recipe books / on-line sites for home-cooked cat diets ?

(and NO sweeties, I know all to well no cat would be safe for a nanosecond with my beasties ~ my little feral girl continues to msising-in-action:sad: ). This is for a friend.

Meaty Oats

4 cups of rolled oats cook until soft, then add to the rest of the ingredients, which are fed raw.
2 eggs
2 pounds of minced lean beef, or other meats e.g. chicken, turkey, heart, rabbit or lamb
1 tablespoon of Supplement' powder (see below)
2 tablespoons of bonemeal or 4,000 mg Calcium or 2 teaspoons of eggshell powder
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
10,000 i.u of Vitamin A from for example cod liver oil
150 i.u of Vitamin E
1 teaspoon of fresh raw vegetables e.g. carrot, spinach, herbs etc.

This will make about 12 cups of which you feed 1 to 2 cups a day depending on how large and active your cat is.

Some liver can be added to the recipe but do not use just liver as the only meat.


'Supplement' Powder:

2 cups of nutritional yeast or brewers yeast
cup of Kelp powder
1 cup of Lecithin powder
1000 mg of Vitamin C (or teaspoon of Sodium ascorbate)

Mix together and refrigerate and use as in above recipes
Or use Pet Plus, Udo's Pet Essentials or Missing Link powders along with the Vitamin C.

Steal away - the first one I posted was a big hit with my kitties, all 4 of them even YY who can be finicky at times.

Good luck with your cooking for your pets!
