Homemade and Raw Cat Food (cont.)
Cooked Diet: A Recipe for Healthy Cats
The following recipe, from the MSPCA-Angell Animal Medical Center, is for a day's feeding of an average 12-pound adult cat with no medical problems. It is endorsed by Remillard.
Use a dietary gram scale to weigh out foods until you get accustomed to the correct measurements, and make sure all ingredients are well blended before serving. The food must be kept refrigerated or frozen between meals, and for palatability's sake, warmed before being given to your cat.
