As carnivores, cats need to eat meat and avoid eating unhealthy foods full of indigestible carbohydrates. Feeding cats the wrong diet can cause health problems and ultimately lessen the length of their lives. Cooking for cats can be a great way to get your cats the proteins they need, and it can also be a very enjoyable pastime for the people making it. It's essential to consult with a qualified veterinary nutritionist before embarking on feeding you cat solely on home prepared foods

Making Cat Food: Homemade and Raw Cat Food Diets
Homemade cat food used to scare me. I was afraid of nutrient imbalances, didnt know what equipment I needed, and wasnt ready to spend hours of every month preparing cat food.
The questions were endless.
Are there nutritionally balanced recipes out there or is everyone following the one that looks like it makes sense?

Cat Food Recipes, making healthy cat foods at home is easy and good for your feline gourmet!
We feed our cats home made cat food for their breakfast and dinner. This is much better than feeding commercial cat foods. Commercial pet foods are made from the carcasses of not only hoofed animals, but animals with paws as well. The carcasses are taken to a rendering plant where they are cut up and cooked - complete with intestines full of feces, flea collars, ear tags, Phenobarbital (which cannot be cooked out), cancers, fur, etc. Take a good look at your dog's kibbles and you will find fur stuck all through them.

In this app, I will share with you my own cat food recipe and variations. For those of you who want to know exactly what you are feeding your cat and in what proportions, making the food at home is surprisingly easy and simple. There are some rules that make things easier and more practical. I will present these first.
Its been proven that kittens who are fed a diet of raw meats grow faster than those fed cooked meats. This is natural since the cats digestive system is designed to process raw meats. However, with todays meat processing as it is, one must assume that all raw foods, even ones marketed for humans, may carry Salmonella or worse.
While it is unlikely that the consumption of these bacteria would actually cause your cat to become sick, it could however make your cat a carrier for the bacteria, which is a danger to all of his humans. Freshwater fish, when served uncooked may present another danger; that of tapeworms! Also one must consider that uncooked oily type fish are very high in Thiaminase, which can break down the vitamin Thiamin and lead to disease.
Lastly, there is a potential problem with feeding raw meats, (which generally have a poor calcium/phosphorus ratio). This can lead (especially in Siamese kittens) to osteodystrophy, a very painful, developmental joint disease. Because of all these reasons, I must say that I and many other experts do not advise feeding a raw diet to your feline.
