While this article will go over the cat food recipe we use, first let’s look at why it’s the best option. I’ve always known that feeding heavily processed food to your cats (and dogs) is not the best, and it’s only getting worse. There are too many news stories about cats and dogs falling ill and some dying after eating a major brand of pet food. Store bought food no matter how health it appears, is still heavily processed with unnatural ingredients and useless or harmful fillers that cats can not digestion and use. Ever wonder why your cat throws up? Well, there are two main reasons: First, you are pouring out too much food and your cat is trying to eat all of it at one sitting; Second, your cat is allergic to something in the food you are feeding it.
Here are ingredients that you need to avoid (for you and even more important for your cat):
Grain meal and byproducts.
PG (Propylene Glycol).
Food Dyes (Yellow 5 & 6, Blue 2, Red 40, and 4-MI or 4-MIE).
Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate (SAPP)
BHA (Butylated Hydroxyanisole).
BHT (Butylated Hydroxytoluene).
Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
Feed Your Little Carnivores Their Natural Diet
Your cats’ natural diet, simply put, is the foods that its’ body has been designed to eat and process to obtain optimal health and function. Cats are biological designed to eat whole animals which is why they are classified as obligate carnivores. Because their bodies can not manufacture taurine, an essential amino acid, cats must eat prey animals in order to survive. Without a diet containing taurine, cats will go blind and eventually die. All cats who live in the wild eat whole raw animals. They do not cook their food. Kibble which is the dry food you give your cat has been cooked down to ash. Kibble is not a natural food and is not found in the wild. It is manufactured by humans. In fact, human kibble is cereal, like the kind you eat for breakfast, and it’s just as harmful to you as dry kibble is for your pets.
Your cat will thrive on its’ natural diet. You just need to make sure the food is high quality and free from disease. I have found a very good recipe which I have been using to feed my cats, it can be found here
