Avoiding By-Products
As more cats and kittens are developing cancer and kidney disease each year, the same caveats apply to their eating habits as ours: eat plenty of fresh, organic, non-processed foods. This implies that a diet of grocery store kibble is inappropriate for the long-term health of your cat.
Do remember that cats are natural carnivores, so while you may be opposed to eating meat, your cat's digestive tract is designed for a diet of 75% fresh meat. Blindness or heart failure can result from a diet that is insufficient in protein and taurine. The following recipes are quick and easy; and can be made from the foods you already have at home.

kittyRecipe #1 - Kitty's Dinner: 

Combine in blender or Cuisinart until the consistency of canned cat food:(I add an equal amount of premium, high quality, vitamin-fortified dry cat food, such as Pinnacle, Wysong, KatzenFlocken, PetGuard, or anything without 'by-products' listed in its top 7 ingredients.) Do NOT use grocery store food as this is commonly produced from rendering plant waste of diseased, decayed or abscessed animal parts. Declared unfit for human consumption by the FDA, it is commonly labelled as "by-products".) 

  75% of this recipe's ingredients must consist of:

  • any type fish or low-fat meat, such as turkey, chicken, beef, liver; giblets are especially tasty, to include boiling chicken or turkey neck bones until soft and easily pulverized -- an excellent source of calcium and protein.
  25% of the remaining ingredients may consist of:
  • baked potatoes (leave skin on) and/or brown rice
  • fresh garlic cloves (4 per pound of mix as a natural blood-purifier and flea repellent)
  • brewer's yeast (one tsp per pound of mix; unprocessed, undebittered the best; also a natural flea repellent)
  • organic apple cider vinegar (1/4 cup per pound of mix to boost the immune system)
  • raw carrots, celery and cucumbers (cleanses liver, kidney & intestines; improves breath and stool odor)
  • raw or steamed: broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, cabbage, zucchini, green beans, yellow squash, corn (try anything except tomatoes which cats don't usually like
  • olive, cod liver, flax seed or sesame seed oil (one tbsp per pound of mix for glossy coat and healthy skin)
  • lecithin supplement (one tsp per pound of mix; look for power or liquid in pet shops or health food stores)
  • bone meal (one tsp per pound of mix to increase kitty's calcium absorption from the meat or fish)
Recipe #2 - Kitty's Breakfast:kitty 

Combine in blender/Cuisinart until a smooth, even texture and serve with equal quantities of premium, high quality dry cat food such as Pinnacle, KatzenFlocken, Wysong, PetGuard, or anything without 'by-products' listed in its top 7 ingredients. :

(Remember to never buy anything with by-products listed as an ingredient. If that's all your favorite store carries, either shop somewhere else or contact the store manager and manufacturer and tell them you will not buy anything containing by-products.)
  • Yogurt
  • Brewer's yeast
  • Carrots
  • Lecithin
  • Any of yours and kitty's favorite fruits, to include: cantalope and honeydew melons, bananas, apples, raspberries, grapes, kiwis (but do not use citrus fruits, i.e. oranges, limes or lemons, as cats hate the smell)
  • Have fun, be inventive and watch your kitty improve in energy, appearance, and overall health; while at the same time enjoying the calming benefits of abundant calcium, potassium and tryptophan.
