Hi,sorry, the fish I used shouldn't be called silverfish, I literally translate from the chinese name for this fish. It should be called "Shirasu".
i figured as much LOL. i couldn't imagine a cat going wild for crushed insects on his food so i read it as "silver" fish-- (which most of them are but still)
I had read recently that you should never feed bacon. My cats love it, but I stopped giving it to them after I read this. What brand is the bacon and egg cat food?
Foods To Avoid When You Make Your Own Cat Food
You should never give your cat chocolate, pork, bacon, onions, bones or raw eggs (cooked eggs are okay). These foods can cause adverse reactions and effects within your cat's system, so avoid them.
It's also wise to limit the amount of human-food grade tuna you feed your cat.
i'm not going to make any chocolate sundaes for the cats lol but it isn't as toxic to cats as it is to dogs, either that or dogs love it and will eat enough to kill them (?) onions and bones are a definite no, but pork, bacon and raw eggs are debatable.
i make it myself with just scrambled eggs and enough bacon for flavoring but i wouldn't say a lot. i also don't make it often because i wouldn't freeze scrambled eggs, i don't think it would reheat well. also because i don't eat eggs or bacon. as soon as a carton of eggs is gone, that's it for awhile. the reason it says no raw eggs is because of a salmonella risk, but that risk is more or less negligible. it's there, but i think if you give a non-immunocompromised cat raw eggs, it won't kill them. cats have a much stronger threshold for bacteria, eating meat that has lain dead for a week and such. i think their stomach acid is about 10x stronger than ours.
i'm pretty sure they are referring to heavily salted cured meat, like salt pork. i know bacon is cured but it isn't a huge amount of only that. heavy, fatty meat like that can give dogs "bloat" but the amount i give them with scrambled eggs has never caused a digestive problem.
the pork i use is cooked pork i buy raw, not cured salt pork. and i haven't used ham except for ham flavored baby food mixed into things. well, i tried deviled ham once just to see if they would like it, and they did, but i doubt if i'd feed them straight deviled ham for meals.
i always make sure to add the recommended amounts of bone meal, vitamins, and taurine to any cat food i make, no matter how infrequently i feed it to them. taurine deficiencies are nothing to play with (well neither are vitamins) and it's better for a cat to get more than they need (not purposely huge amounts) because they excrete it in their urine.
everything i do is with perfectly healthy cats who have regular bloodwork done. i cannot speak for anyone with an immunocompromised,diabetic or CRF cat.
