A mélange so delectable even the most finicky cat will succumb. To reduce bacterial risk, always freeze meat for 72 hours prior to use and defrost in the refrigerator. Introduce new foods into your cat’s diet just a dot at a time, doubling the amount every second meal until you work up to a regular serving. It can take cats several weeks to adjust to a new food.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1/2 pound cooked chicken (though or breast meat), cut into pea-size pieces
2 drops olive oil
1 organic egg yolk
1 teaspoon bone meal
1/2 teaspoon fish oil
1 cat multivitamin per serving, crushed
Pet digestive enzymes (read label for dose)
1 tablespoon vegetable baby food, such as carrot, squash or peas, optional (no onion powder)
Mix together all ingredients until well blended. Feed an adult cat as much as it will eat in 20–30 minutes: about 1/2–3/4 cup for a small cat, 3/4–1 cup for a medium cat, and 1-1/4 – 2 cups for a large cat. Refrigerate leftovers for up to 4 days.
