  1. You can feed it the leftovers from your food. Just make sure it is mostly protien as cats shouldn’t eat things like rice etc. They are mainly carnivours. My cat loves KFC the most (but not the fries).

  2. 1

    Get out your grinder. You will use this to grind the bones and attached meat for your cat’s food.


    Assemble all your supplements. Have all the ingredients you need ready and at hand before you begin.


    Cut up the animal carcass that you are using for the food into large pieces (as you would when you de-bone a chicken).


    Cut most of the meat from the bones (leaving a little attached) and set the bones aside in a large bowl.


    Cut the meat into bite-sized chunks. This will allow your cat to chew on something and keep her teeth and gums healthy.


    Weigh your organ meat. You will need 400 g (14 oz.) of raw heart meat and 200 g (7 oz.) of raw liver.


    Put the organ meats into the same bowl as the meat bones. Put the meat chunks into a separate bowl and store both bowls in the fridge.


    You are now ready to make the supplemental part of this organic pet food recipe. Into a large bowl pour 2 cups of water.


    Crack 4 raw eggs and separate the yolks. Add the yolks to the bowl.


    Add your dry ingredients. You will need 4 capsules of glandular supplement, 4000g of salmon oil, 200 mg of vitamin B, 800 IU of vitamin E, a ¼ teaspoon each of kelp and Dulsea, and 4 teaspoons of psalm. Be sure to add the psyllium last. Stir the mixture thoroughly and set aside.


    Take the meaty bones and organ meat out of the fridge and grind them together in your electric grinder.


    Take the meat chunks out of the fridge and add them to the ground bones and organs. Stir these together.


    Add the supplemental mixture to the meat and stir thoroughly.


    Spoon the organic cat food into small containers suitable for freezing. Small glass canning jars work perfectly for this. Do not overfill your jars. Leave about a ½-inch gap from the top of the jar.


    Label each jar with the type of meat you used and the date it was prepared.


    Freeze your jars to keep the ingredients fresh. Take each jar out and thaw as needed to feed your beloved cat.



    1/2 cup raw trimmed beef
    1 tablespoon beef broth
    2 tablespoons cooked oatmeal
    1 tablespoon dried barley grass powder
    1 cooked minced veggie
    Cook raw trimmed beef in just enough broth to cover, over medium to low heat. When beef is cooked thru shred with fork and mix with the broth in which it was cooked. Add the minced veggie (carrots are good with this one) and the barley grass powder. Stir well. Last add the oatmeal to achieve the consistency that your cat likes.

    1 can sardines in olive oil
    1/4 cup whole grain bread crumbs
    1 egg, beaten
    1/2 tsp brewer’s yeast
    2 cooked chicken drumsticks, bones removed
    Drain the sardines, reserving the olive oil, and mash. Mix in the bread crumbs, egg and yeast to an even, gooey consistency. Coat the chicken drumsticks evenly in the mixture. Heat the reserved olive oil in a frying pan then add the coated drumsticks and fry, turning frequently, until brown. Remove from the heat, and cool before serving.

  3. Use the information on the catinfo site already provided by Cheyann. Plenty of information there for preparing a balanced, healthful, homemade raw diet for cats.

    It is easiest to use chicken because it is easy for cats to eat chicken bones. Rabbit is easy too. To use other meats that have bones too big for a cat to eat I would recommend getting chicken necks to make up the bone portion.
