Homemade catfood recipe?

I have been feeding my cat a special food called Spot's Stew. I have done a lot of research and this is definitely the best catfood on the market. It contains human grade meat, organ meat, vegetables and vitamins, that is it. The maker of this catfood wrote a book, The Whole Pet diet

    Default Homemade catfood recipe?

    I have been feeding my cat a special food called Spot's Stew. I have

    done a lot of research and this is definitely the best catfood on the

    market. It contains human grade meat, organ meat, vegetables and

    vitamins, that is it. The maker of this catfood wrote a book, The

    Whole Pet diet and gave out the recipe. I tried to make it but my cat

    hated it. Even the neighborhood wild cats would not even eat it. This

    cat is extremely important to me and he is old. I truly believe that

    an extremely healthy diet will extend his life but I cannot afford to

    keep giving him Spot's Stew. Does anyone have a homemade catfood

    recipe that cats will actually eat?



    Thanks,

    Susanne

    I don't have a home made diet, but Science Diet makes a product that is very high in calories that I believe is called a/d....it comes in a flat tuna sized can and most large pet stores/vet offices carry it. It does sometimes help to warm the food(any food)slightly because the sense of smell goes as they age and when you warm the food some it seems to become even more stinky...it's a pain, but it got an extra year of life for my parents 21 year old tabby.

    My vet explained that homemade cat food is difficult to make & requires more

    precision with the input because cats eat fewer items than dogs. But there

    may be homemade cat food groups at Yahoo. I belong to a homecooking for dogs

    group at Yahoo so perhaps you can find one for cats.

    If it is a/d, then it is Prescription Diet, also made by Hill's, and

    it is by prescription from a vet and sold in vet's offices. If a

    pet store is selling it without a script, then they shouldn't be.



    The best food I ever gave my cats was Artemis cat food, sold in some

    stores. I would do a search for Artemis Cat Food, and see if a

    store is nearby. We used it in CA and now the nearest store to sell

    it is almost 3 hours away from where we live now.



    You can also do a search for Homemade cat food. There might be

    recipes there as well. I would stay away from Chicken Soup for the

    Cat Lover's sould Food. I can't prove it, but after being on that

    food for 8 months, 3 of my cats developed crystals in the urnine and

    now have to be on Prescription Diet c/d for life at a cost of $50.00

    for a 20 pound bag. OUCH!!

    It is possible to look up the list of ingredients to this food on the Halo website. I searched Spot's Stew to find that information. You may be able to create a recipe from there.
    I am going to post the recipe I found, but I want to first say that there was a caution regarding making your own animal food and restricting your pet to that one recipe alone. This is due to the nutrition that is required may not be found completely in one recipe. If you make your own food it is recommended to switch up the recipes, as long as you are creating balanced recipes, and to also consider supplementing with the manufactured food to ensure the pet is healthy.
    Almost Spot's Stew Recipe:
    1 whole chicken (free range or no hormones/antibiotics stamp on label)
    2 cups brown rice
    6 stalks of celery
    8 carrots, scrubbed but not peeled
    2 or 3 yellow squash
    2 or 3 zucchini
    1 small broccoli crown
    handful of green beans
    --Wash chicken, then cover with water in a large stew pot. Cut veggies into pieces and add to pot. Add rice Cook until chicken almost falls off the bone and veggies are tender. Completely debone chicken. IMPORTANT STEP! -Cooked chicken bones can splinter & cause serious intestinal damage, so take a minute and check to make sure you removed all of the bones. Pour the stew into blender and chop/blend until the mixture is coarse (about bite-size to your pet). Freeze in meal sized plastic bags.

    Hope this helps you keep your kitty happy It'll help you save some cash to still be able to supplement with the real stuff! You could try other ingredients, just research first what should be in cat food and what shouldn't.
