Cat Food Recipes as well as Cat Treats

Here is a collection of Cat Food and Treat Recipes I have found. Saw a lot of people are asking for these.
Enjoy!(Please note-These are not my own creations)

Home-made Cat Food(Raw)
Food for 1 cat, 10 days
720 g beef (cubed)
480 g minced beef
400 g heart(ground if possible)
150 g liver (ground if possible)
3 egg yolks
90 g steamed veggies;broccoli,cauliflower,carrots
5 tbls calcium lactate
1 tbsl fish oil or flax seed oil
2,5 ml salt substitute

Combine ingredients, mix well, store.


Chicken Home-made Cat Food(Raw)
Food for 1 cat, 21 days
2,5 kg chicken (meat, bones and skin)
672 g chicken heart
315 g chicken liver
6-7 egg yolks
135 g squash
122 g red pepper
112 g yellow pepper
5 ml salt substite
3 tbls fish oil or flax seed oil

Grind some of the chicken meat, all the bones and the skin, all of the heart and all the livers. The meat not grinded should be sliced to whatever size your cat prefers. Steam and mix the veggies. Mix it all together.

Raw Cat Food Diet Recipe Made WITH Real Bones

2 kg raw muscle meat with bones
400 gram heart
200 grams liver
2 cups water
4 raw egg yolks
4 capsules raw glandular supplement, such as, for example, multigland supplement by Immoplex
4000 mg salmon oil
800 IU Vitamin E
200 mg Vitamin B complex
1.5 tsp. Lite salt (with iodine)
optional: 4 tsp. psyllium husk powder (8 tsp. if using whole psyllium husks; see note at bottom of recipe

NOTE: If you will not be using the food immediately and freezing for more than a week or two, toss in 4000 mg of additional Taurine to make up for what may get lost during storage. It is also not a bad idea to sprinkle extra Taurine from a capsule on the food as you're serving it two or three times a week, just to be certain your cat is getting plenty of this critical amino acid.

1. Remove about half of the skin from the muscle meat. Chunk up (i.e., cut) as much of the muscle meat (minus most of the skin if using chicken or turkey, but leave skin on if using rabbit) as you can stand into bite-sized (nickel-sized, approximately) pieces. Save the chunked meat for later. Do not grind it.
2. Grind the raw liver, any skin, raw meaty bones, and raw heart. Once ground, stir this meat/bone mixture well and return to refrigerator.
3. Fill a bowl with 2 cups of water and whisk everything (non-meat) except the psyllium. If you had to replace liver with Vitamin A/D or replace heart with Taurine, add the substitutes now. Add psyllium at the end -- if you're using it -- and mix well. Finally, put the three mixtures together--the "supplement slurry" that you have just mixed, the ground up meat/bone/organs, and the chunks of meat that you cut up by hand. Portion into containers and freeze.

Don't overfill the containers. The food expands when frozen and you don't want lids popping off. Thaw as you go. The food shouldn't be left thawed in the refrigerator more than 48 hours before serving. To serve, portion into a 'zipper baggie' and warm under hot water in the sink. NEVER microwave the food. Cats like their food at something approximating "mouse body temperature."

Raw Cat Food w/o Bones

1400 gramsraw muscle meat
400 grams heart
200 grams liver
2 cups water
4 tablespoons bonemeal
2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
4 raw egg yolks
4 capsules raw glandular supplement
4000 mg salmon oil
800 IU Vitamin E
200 mg Vitamin B complex
1.5 tsp. Lite salt

optional: 4 tsp. psyllium husk powder (8 tsp. if using whole psyllium husks; see note at bottom of recipe
NOTE: If you will not be using the food immediately and freezing for more than a week or two, toss in 4000 mg of additional Taurine to make up for what may get lost during storage. It is also not a bad idea to sprinkle extra Taurine from a capsule on the food as you're serving it two or three times a week, just to be certain your cat is getting plenty of this critical amino acid.

1. Remove about half of the skin from the muscle meat. Chunk up (i.e., cut) much of the muscle meat (minus most of the skin if using chicken or turkey, but leave skin on if using rabbit) into bite-sized (nickel-sized, approximately) pieces. Save the chunked meat for later - do not grind it.
2. Grind the raw liver, remaining meat and the raw heart. Once ground, stir this mixture well and return to refrigerator. Once ground, stir this mixture very well and refrigerate.
3. Fill a bowl with 2 cups of water and whisk everything (non-meat) except the psyllium and gelatin. If you had to replace liver with Vitamin A and D or heart with Taurine, add those substitutes now. Add psyllium (if you're using that) and gelatin at the end and stir well. (If you add the psyllium and gelatin too soon it clumps up.) Finally, put the three mixtures together -the "supplement slurry" that you have just mixed, the ground-up meat, and the chunks of meat you cut by hand. Portion into containers and freeze.

Don't overfill the containers. Thaw only what you can use within 48 hours. Warm the food in a plastic bag under hot water to take off the chill, and serve.

Chicken, Rice and Vegetables
2 cups of ground or chopped chicken, cooked
1 cup of cooked brown rice
cup grated carrots
Put chicken, brown rice and carrots in a blender and mix well. If there is any fat from the chicken, pour about two teaspoons over the mix. Serve at room temperature.

Beefy Oats
4 cups rolled oats or 8 cups cooked oatmeal
2 eggs
2 pounds ground lean hamburger
4 tablespoons Healthy Powder
2 tablespoons bonemeal
2 tablespoons butter
10,000 IU vitamin A
100-200 IU vitamin E
1 teaspoon fresh vegetable with each meal
500 mg taurine supplement (optional)
Bring 8 cups of water to a boil. Add oats, cover and turn off heat, letting oats cook for 10 minutes until soft. Stir in eggs, letting them set form the heat for a few minutes. Mix remaining ingredients. Yield: about 12 3/4 cups. Freeze whatever cannot be eaten in 2-3 days. Daily feeding: small cat— 1/2 to 3/4 cup; medium cat—1 to 1 1/3 cup; large cat—1 1/2 to 2 1/4 cups.


Cheesy treats

These are meant for both people and your cats to enjoy.

1 cup flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 egg beaten
1/4 cup water
2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
sprinkling of salt

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Combine all the ingredients except half the cheese. Flour your hands and knead until thoroughly mixed. On a floured surface, roll the dough into long thin worms with floured hands. Pull apart into 1-inch pieces. Roll the pieces in the remaining cheese and place them on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. These can be broken apart into cheesy kibble sized treats. Makes about 4 cups.

Lamb and Rice Delight

4 ounces ground lamb
1/4 cup cooked rice
2 tablespoons cornmeal
1 egg
1 teaspoon catnip
dash of salt

Preheat the broiler to 425 degrees F. Combine all the ingredients and knead the mixture into a ball. Place on a greased cookie sheet and flatten to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Broil for 4 minutes on each side, or until crisp. Let it cool for 30 minutes. Cut into small treat-sized pieces. These will keep for up to a week in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Makes about 6 dozen treats.

Sardine Sandies

Choose whole sardines that have no salt added in processing(you can add your own.)

1/3 can sardines, drained with 1/2 teaspoon oil reserved
200 IU vitamin E (from a capsule), as an antioxidant
1/3 cup plain bread crumbs or cracker crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon brewer's yeast
dash of salt

Preheat the oven to warm or its lowest setting. In a small bowl, mash the sardines very well. Puncture the vitamin E capsule and drizzle it over the fish. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Drop tiny portions about the size of the tip of your little finger onto a cookie sheet generously greased with butter or shortening. Do not form into balls; they don't bake well, and cats can't bite into them easily. Dry in the oven for 40 minutes, turning once halfway through. Stored in an airtight container in the fridge, these keep for 4-5 days. Makes 7-8 dozen.

Sylvester's Health Biscuits

1/2 can tuna in oil, drained with 2-4 tablespoons oil reserved
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup nonfat powdered milk
1 tablespoon liquid coat supplement or cod liver oil
1 egg, beaten
1 small jar of chicken baby food(without onion powder)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl mash the tuna; add the flour and powdered milk. Mix thoroughly. Stir in the coat supplement or oil, egg and baby food. Blend in enough of the reserved tuna oil to make the dough easier to handle. Flour your hands well and form the dough into small, flattened biscuits. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, flipping the biscuits halfway through. Refrigerate in a sealed container for up to a week. Makes about 8 dozen biscuits.

Thanksgiving Leftovers
makes about 5 servings as a meal, 8 as a treat.

- 2 cups chopped or shredded turkey meat (dark and/or white)
- 3 tablespoons turkey gravy
- 1 hard boiled egg (peeled and diced) or scrambled egg (optional)
- dash of catnip (optional)

mix it all in a bowl and serve cold or at room temperature. 1/4 cup should be plenty for one cat as a meal, serve less as a treat

Tuna Treats

Makes approximately 60 treats:

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup nonfat, dry, powdered milk
1/2 can tuna, in oil OR 1/2 cup cooked chicken, chopped into small pieces
1 tablespoon vegetable oil OR cod liver oil
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup water
Catnip (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease cookie sheets with cooking spray. In large bowl, mash the tuna (or chicken) into smaller pieces. Then add flour and milk. Mix well. After all is mixed, pour in water and oil. Mix well again. Next beat egg in seperate dish until egg gets a foamy texture. Add to mix. Mix well. The dough mix will be sticky, so don't worry.
Using your fingers, shape dough into small bite size balls - about the size of a marble. Put balls on greased cookie sheets. Flatten balls with hand. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove treats from oven wait five minutes and turn treats over so other side will cook. Bake 10 more minutes or until golden brown in color. Place treats on cookie rack to cool. Cool for 15 minutes.
NEVER give treats to your pet right after cooking. You can add the catnip in the recipe or sprinkle on top of treats. They like it either way. Store in air tight container and store in refrigerator or cool dry place.

3 (2.5 ounce) jars strained chicken baby food
1 tablespoon water

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a medium bowl, mix the wheat germ, baby food, and water together. Add more water if necessary to form a dough. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork dipped in water. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven.

Catnip Cookies

1/4 cup of whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons of wheat germ
2-4 tablespoons of catnip
1/3 cup of milk
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

6. Remove a portion of dough and use a rolling pin to uniformly flatten the dough to a thickness between 1/8 of an inch and 1/4 of an inch.

8. Place the cookies on a lightly greased cookie sheet.

I love the treat ideas! I personally leave dry food down and give them a variety of wet food once a day, but the treats sound like so much fun to make! I can't wait to try them out on the babies.
