Making Your Own Custom Cat Food

Now here’s something you don’t hear often: custom cat food. In a world where there is everything custom, from shirts to shoes to cars to homes, I bet we never thought custom cat food would join in on the fun. But it indeed has and we can look at the positives of this interesting niche.

Apply what you know

If you are very much interested in cat nutritional requirements and have done some extensive research on this topic, then you can apply what you know. Say your research leads you to believe that your cat requires a specific vitamin in dry food to promote better health, then apply it. Your research leads you to believe that a specific preservative should be avoided at all costs, then eliminate it. This is the beauty of custom cat food, you rely on you. Not what companies tell you to believe.

Every cat is unique

Just like people, every cat is unique and has different needs. Pet food companies cater to about 90% of cats with non-specialized cat food. If you are not savvy to the rules and regulations of pet food companies, then picking out healthy cat food for your cat gets even harder. This is because there are many loopholes that regular cat owners just aren’t aware of. These companies thrive off of that and exploit it.

If your cat is part of that 10% that needs special nutrition, or you want to ensure your cat is getting a healthy diet then custom cat food may sound intriguing. It may sound intriguing to know that you are in charge of what goes into the food. It may sound intriguing to know that you can add special supplements to promote health in various aspects.

Peace of mind

A significant aspect of custom cat food is the peace of mind you have knowing what is going into the food. You create the food from scratch. There is no room for all these added chemical preservatives, or by-products, or nutritional aspects that are useless for your particular cat. If you wish to feed your cat dry food, you can do so knowing that every ingredient is handpicked. That’s a pretty neat characteristic of being a cat owner. Something that I, personally, never thought was going to happen.

Custom cat food may not be for everyone. In fact, I am sure it is not. Not a lot of cat owners put in the time and research into knowing what is actually in cat foods. But for those who are committed to providing exceptional cat food to our cats, or for those who want to start, this option is available to us. Committed cat owners treat their pets like they are family, well now we can start feeding them like family.
