Cat food recipes for older cats

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:

First recipe:

·         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

 

Second recipe:

  • 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
  • Pinch taurine
  • 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.

Third recipe:

·         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.
