When your cat is aging and getting older, you will find that your cat’s health begins to fail especially if you don’t provide nutritional foods for your cat. You owe it to your cat to prepare homemade cat food recipes that are nutritious. Here are a few to start:
·2 cups rice
·1 can mackerel or tuna
·2 or 3 chicken livers
·As available: add 1/2 cup of beans/peas/corn
Mix or blend in food processor. No preservatives or artificial anything
2 ounces ground beef (80 percent lean)
1/3 cup instant rice, cooked
2 teaspoons fat (chicken or beef fat or vegetable or fish oil)
1/4 teaspoon bone meal, ground
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 of a (9-gram) human adult vitamin-mineral tablet (see note)
Bake, fry or microwave the beef and fat (do not drain). Combine beef with remaining ingredients except for the tablet. Mix well. Serve with the tablet (either in pill form or pulverized and thoroughly mixed with the food).
Note: Feed your cat half the tablet each day.
·2 cans of sardines
·pat of butter
·1 cup water
·few stalks of watercress
Optional fish sauce
Preparation & Cooking Put the sardines and the pat of butter into a heavy-based frying-pan and cook on a medium heat. As the pan warms and the butter melts, mash the sardines into it. When the butter has completely melted, pour in the water and stir as it comes to a boil. Thoroughly shred the watercress and toss into the pan. Remove the pan from the heat and allow cooling. Puree, and add a dash of fish sauce.
For pet owners who love their cats, it is apparent that they want their cats to live for a long time. A cat is considered a member of the family and their death can mean a lot o grief for the family members. There are things apart from genetics that make your cat age. Bad health is one of the primary things. You can lengthen the life of your cat by good nutrition, which will eventually improve the health of your cat. Taking care of your cat is your responsibility. Your cat should have consistent care from a veterinarian. You should feed your cat according to its age and its health.
You would not give a diabetic cat the same diet as a healthy cat. Cats can have the best possible health depending on the care that you take with their nutrition. Cats are introduced in the world as kittens. This is their first stage of development. As kittens, cats do better with liquid food more than solid food. This period of growth is very important and so you must be careful what you feed your cat at this age. Kittens will develop fully at about the age of two or a little older. This is the time when you have to begin to train your cat to eat healthy. At the age of a year to seven years, cats no longer grow. They are likely to develop diseases if nutritionally deprived. So take care of your cat while it is young so it will be healthier later on.
It can be frustrating for pet owners to trust the pet food industry since the recall in the year 2007. As you begin to do your research, you will discover the kind of trash that pet food manufacturers are producing and calling it cat food. Not all of them are the same because if that was the case, then our pets would go hungry. Not every pet owner would take the time to make homemade cat food recipes for their pets. If you go online and do some research on pet food ratings, you will find that even the cat foods that are said to be premium do not have the nutritious ingredient that your cat needs.
A lot of these cat foods are filled with carcinogens, toxins, by products and ingredients that are cheap and not appropriate for the digestive system of your cats. Some of your pets are eating garbage and it is a travesty. This is why some cats have a short life span or ongoing illnesses such as kidney disease, diabetes and even cancer.

Put the vegetable oil in a baking pan and put the fish into it. Make sure you turn it over to bake both sides. Baking time should be 15 minutes on each side. Allow the fish to cool after baking and cut it into small bit size.
