Home Cooking for Kittys

Thought I'd write and article about home cooking for kittys. John in one his comments said his daughter was having trouble with her kitty. So I started looking up recipes, and what I found were about the same as for the puppies - chicken, carrots, peas, brown rice, and celery.

Well I know my Mr. Tigger would be very upset with me and give me the kitty flip of the tail while walking away, if I tried tried to feed him that. I guess I thought cats always ate fish. Tigger's favorite food is salmon in sauce and HAS to be shreds not pate. He's a very finicky eater. I've tried to give him chicken and salmon - No way! What about tuna and salmon - absolutely NOT!

So if I were to start cooking for him. The first thing would be salmon and eggs and chicken thighs[if I could slip it in on him.] Brown rice and kitty vitamins.

I'm sure what ever I would give him wouldn't be poultry by-products or wheat gluten or corn starch modifiers or soy flour or artificial flavors or calcium phosphate or a bunch of other stuff I can't pronounce and have no clue what it does! It wouldn't have red#3 or artificial coloring (no nutritional value and causes allergic reactions), BHA (a preservative and is dangerous to the kidneys), BHT (used to stop spoilage and is WORSE then BHA), Carcinogen (a preservative and flavor enhancer also known as sodium nitrate)!

The list just goes on and on, and just an FYI, these ingredients are found in hot dogs, lunch meats, bacon, and sausages, but that's people food. But the best of all is polypropylene glycol. You know what that is? It's ANTI-FREEZE, and it's also found in brake fluid used as a preservative. Many of these ingredients are found in the kitty food.

If the kittys were in the wild they'd eat rats, rabbits, snakes, bugs, berries (if they could find them) and birds. Believe it or not they won't need to drink water because typically felines exit on the blood of their pray. I know, GROSS! I know one thing I'm not going to give him a frozen rat. I do know he is a rat killer, he's killed several that I know of, but I digress.

So what to do about your kitty food? Try to keep it as clean as you can. Also, check around the house and try to use only natural or organic cleaners. Vinegar and water for the floors. FYI: when kittys walk on wet floors and you've used a regular cleaner they lick there paws and that could make them sick. Clean their kitty boxes with soap or vinegar. Also if your kitty is and indoor outdoor kitty, check your yard, some plants can be poisonous.

So good luck. Hope this is helpful.

Some plants will cause cat to have jaundice. Watch out if cat face, gums and eyes turn yellow.

I don't have a kitty, but my neighbor's cat visits every morning for breakfast. He knocks on the door, and I make him one shrimp sauteed in butter. He has expensive taste, but worth it. He loves that shrimp. He's very cute. Neighbor told me her cat left home to live with the bachelor next store. Cats! Go figure.

Cats from around the world will be beating a path to your door! I come from an animal family - all are welcome. My dad, whom I Never once saw cry in my life, openly wept when his little black cat died.

Our cat goes crazy for chicken, she's about 4 months old now and she's a little piggy. I was wondering if you might do a write up about maintaining a healthy weight and maybe a recipe or something that would help me get something other than chicken or fish in our fat kitties mouth lol Do you have a website?
