Making homemade pet food is relatively simple and it's a great way to use up small bits of leftover vegetables from the dinner meal. Just be sure you don't add salt or butter to them (unless you don't mind giving those items to fluffy!). Cats primarily need a protein based diet, as opposed to a grain or plant based diet.
4 cups chopped cooked chicken
1/4 cup cooked rice
1/4 cup chopped broccoli,
1/4 cup chopped carrot, cooked until tender
Chicken broth (Homemade or Low Sodium)
Process all ingredients in a food processor or blender with enough chicken broth to hold together. Never seen a cat turn this down.
According to the Animal Medical Center in New York, a healthy, active 8-pound adult cat requires about 30 calories per pound per day. So, the average 8-pound cat requires about 240 calories per day.
