Raw meat cat food diet Vs. Mixed cat food Recipes

This is once again a question that keeps coming over and over, whether it is better to stick to meat and meat by products or to make homemade cat food recipes with various available cat foods.
It is somewhat frustrating to know beforehand that no good answer is available, otherwise everyone would have used it.
It is for sure more "natural" to feed raw meat and meat byproducts/leftovers to your cat, since cats have managed thousands of years now to survive by only eating meat. But this doesn't mean that eating meat is healthier than taking diversified meals! nor that it is cheaper and practical!
As a matter of fact, no known cat food recipe has ever banned meat from its ingredients! some people are scared by the idea of preparing something for their cat to eat that is not called raw meat, this conception is very false, cat food recipes are not there to substitute meats but only to complement it, you can find for example in my cat recipes limited grain additions such as brown rice, or oils, or other nutritional additives that complement the cat diet and avoids your lovely cat to get ill.
If you want a quick and easy way to go, keep giving your cat meat and meat by-products as often as you can financially afford, then pick one recipe a day from my website and see how much your cat loves it, .. I am sure you will quickely find your own way out this way, and things will be even easier when your cat will develop stronger eating habits, then you will know exactly what cat food to give it.
Happy feeding.

FISHBALLS: a cat food recipe made with fish

What better can I offer you today than a cat food recipe made with fish? this tasty recipe will make your cat go crazy! especially if the cat is not used to eat fish very often!

As a matter of fact, fish is a very nutrient cat food, and the recipes here-presented, that are made with fish are also some of the richest in protein and vitamins, .. this comes partially from the cost effectiveness criteria that I use with my recipes, so if fish is less expensive than meat (in most countries) then you are able to put a better "meat to other crap" ratio with the cat recipes made with fish than with any other type of meals.

Now let's dive into the heart of the matter, I know you can't wait, so here is it:


* 3 small carrots, cooked until soft
* 16 oz canned tuna in oil, drained
* 2 tsp brewer's yeast
* 2 oz cooked herring, skin removed
* 2 T whole grain bread crumbs or oatmeal
* 2-3 T grated cheese
* 1 egg, beaten
* 2 T tomato paste (not ketchup)
* Several pinches of chopped catnip
* 2 T tomato paste (not ketchup)

How to make it:

Heat the oven to 350C. Mash up the fish with the carrots, bread crumbs or oatmeal, catnip, cheese, egg, brewer's yeast, and tomato paste to an even paste.

Mold into small balls and put on a greased baking tray.

Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, check it frequently, the fish balls should be golden brown and feel firm. Cool thoroughly.

Cat food Vs. Cat shit

Your cat defecates too much? Many people have brought this important subject up in many places in the web, and I feel it deserves to be talked about a little, .. So how one can make homemade cat food that makes the cat produce less crap? many people have sand recipients or even gardens but if you don't have a real huge garden where the cat shit place is really far from where you live, throwing away cat defecates can be a real pain after some months (or years?).
In order for your cat to defecate less, you need to give him food that suits it the best, the more inapropriate, indigest food you give it and the more shit it will cause you to through away (or sand to bring in).
Generally speaking this means to cut grains and fiber-rich vegetables and to boost meat (and meat by-products) servings.
A good instance of this phenomenon is that when new born kittens drink exclusively mother cat milk they practically don't defecate for a few weeks (they only urinate a little), this means that the mother cat milk suits their body so much that they needn't to through away any of it, and that is what you want to be doing like.
If you happen to find better ideas to do that, please be as good as to let us know, by commenting this post below.
