Homecooked Meal for Kitty

Meat - Ground beef, lamb, chicken, turkey - NO pork - (the coarser the ground, the better). For each pound take 6 oz of spring water (or low salt broth) add 4 drops grapefruit seed extract and mix into meat. Add water and/or broth until you get the consistency of thick chili.

Per each pound of raw meat add:
Approximately 2 cups fresh (uncooked or very lightly steamed) vegetables (finely chopped in the food processor) - for example, carrots, zucchini, etc. (Tip: carrots are good to start with - they are sweet).
Approximately 2 cups cooked grains (finely chopped in the food processor) - examples include rice, cereal, leftover potatoes, and oatmeal.
Kitty Bloom brand calcium supplement per package directions (including adding the salt) and Kitty Bloom brand vitamin supplement per package directions. You can substitute bone meal or other calcium per various authors.
Two or three times a week add some coat supplement.
If stools get too loose, cut back on oil.

1T aloe vera juice (no sodium benzoate and not during pregnancy). This is very helpful for any digestive problems and/or allergies.

Sprinkle acidophilus over food at mealtime. Especially helpful for cats who have been recently on antibiotics or have had any sort of digestive problem.

Sprinkle some Florzayme or Prozyme over meal just before serving...especially helpful when changing a cat over to fresh food from commercial food.

Feed at least twice a day. You may freeze or keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

SassyKat's Special Dinner
(good for cats with diabetes or kidney problems)

1 egg
1 tablespoon minced, cooked green beans
1 teaspoon shredded carrot (if you substitute other vegetables, avoid the ones with a lot of natural sugars)
2 tablespoons baked chicken breast (no skin) minced
1/3 cup cooked brown rice (unrefined; wild rice is good)
1 tablespoon olive oil (good for preventing hair balls and constipation - common to diabetics)

Mix all of the ingredients thoroughly with a wooden spoon or in a blender/food processor. It's important to get the rice mixed in well so that it can't be picked out. (Diabetics need fiber and cats with kidney failure problems need to limit their protein intake so this serves two purposes.)

Cook in a small Pyrex skillet over low heat, stirring and "chopping" constantly, until the egg is at least soft-set but done.

Refrigerate in air-tight containers, such as Tupperware, RubberMaid, or Zip-Lock baggies. Use within 36 hours (refrigerated). Stores well in the freezer in Zip-Lock baggies and can be thawed and warmed simultaneously in boiling water in the bag.

(from our friend Ted E. Bear. This is potent stuff; his "special" catnip recipe!)

Frenzied Feline!!


1/2 C, wholewheat flour
1/2 C. nonfat dry milk powder
1/2 can tuna, in oil
1 Tbs. vegetable oil or cod liver oil
1 egg, beaten
1/4 C. water
1/4 C. finely crushed dry catnip, for rolling the balls in, approximately


Preheat oven to 350 F and spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray. In large bowl, mash the tuna so that there are no large lumps. Mix flour and milk in the tuna until thoroughly combined. Add water and oil, mix well. Beat an egg until foamy, add and combine thoroughly. Expect the dough mix to be sticky. Shape dough into tiny balls about the size of a small marble. Roll the balls in finely crushed dry catnip I usually rub the catnip between my hands to crush it. Place the balls on the cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for 10 minutes then remove them from oven and let them rest for 5 minutes. Turn treats over and bake 10 more minutes or until browned. Cool treats completely before giving any to your pet. Store in air tight container in the refrigerator or a cool dry place.
