Default Cat food recipes?

I am looking for cat food recipes, due to the recent pet food problems. I am afraid to give my cats regular food. They are getting sick from eating tuna and chicken. Any suggestions would be much appriciated.

Hi Jinny,Your concerns about the recent pet food recalls are very legitimate, but there is a little excess hype about what to avoid and what is okay. You pretty much have three options when it comes to feeding your pets; commercially made diets, raw food diets, and home prepared diets. Cats are true carnivores - this means that dry kibbles that list wheat or corn as the first ingredients aren't ideally what our cats would eat. A majority of kibble are mostly wheat and corn cereals, for the purposes of longer preservation and a greater volume for the price. In most cases, this isn't a problem - many cats live long and healthy lives on diets from companies like Iams or Royal Canin. You can purchase cat kibbles that are 'grain free' - they're significantly more expensive, but biologically closer to what our cats would consume in nature. My cats eat a food called Evo by Innova, but other good foods are made by Wellness or Solid Gold.Raw food diets are also commercially available, and are formulated specifically for the needs of most cats. They're often purchased in bulk, frozen, and thawed when you're ready to feed. Raw food diets are not recommended for very young cats or cats that suffer from immune-supressing illnesses, because of their higher bacteria content.Home prepared diets are becoming more popular as pet owners focus on closely monitoring their pet's intake. Home prepared diets must be formulated by someone considering nutritional needs of each individual cat, and should be re-evaluated every six months. Dr. Pitcairn is a veterinarian who is a leading expert in the field of nutrition, and has a number of books out to advise owners. There's also a very good website - www.balanceit.com - that can advise you on appropriate diets.I hope this helps you a little - if you have any more specific quesitons, please feel free to email me. I commend your concern and wish you and your kitty well.

High Protein Cat food Meal

Switch off the protein sources with each batch or two. Switch between:
- Half Pound of minced boneless chicken breast or thigh
- Six Ounces of dark-mean ground turkey or minced turkey
- Half Pound of lean, minced beef
- Half Pound of minced beef, chicken or turkey heart

Notes: About three times per week, include one chopped hard-boiled or scrambled egg. Occasionally substitute a five-ounce can of salmon or tuna for the meat. Avoid canned salmon or tuna for cats that are prone to urinary tract infections..

Good Luck dear...
