Making cat food!

Yep, that's right.  I've wanted to put the kitties on a healthier diet, so I found some recipes for homemade cat food!  It will have organic chicken, rice, cottage cheese, pumpkin, a little kelp powder, a little brewer's yeast, and peas. I'll make a small batch to see if they like it.  If they do like it I'll supplement their good dry food with this 3 times a week.  I've been reading that a lot of cat illness are actually caused by a steady diet of commercial cat food, which is loaded with all kinds of crap.

I'm going to CostCo to buy their two-pack of organic chicken, which is pretty affordable.  I'm also going to replace Flea, Squeak, and Zoom's vet food with higher grade, high protein cat food--no meat by-products (what are those anyway?), no ash, no preservatives, no crap!

I'll let you know how this experiment turns out!


  1. Your cats are eating better than I am. May I come over and eat some of their food?


  2. Aw, poor you! I don't eat meat so I can't try the kitty mush, but when I make it I will let you have a bowl, too.
