Not really a recipe, but...

Cats love baby food! If you get a meat type, like chicken or something, they will come RUNNING from any part of the house as soon as they learn what that pop of the safety seal means. It's really cute, and a great way to lure them to you if they're shy. It's also not bad for them; it's actually pretty healthy. Mine love it, but they only get it every once in a while, otherwise it wouldn't be special.

So I am assuming this is ok to feed them every once in awhile? If it is, I will try it later on this week when I go to the grocery store.

I read an article in Cat Fancy about a man who helped tame a wild cat with baby food, so I figured try giving it to my cats to eat. I got chicken flavored and they LOVED it - licked it off the spoon. One threw up after, though...I need to try it again and see if that's what made her throw up or if it's a coincidence.

Yep! Baby food..beef or chicken flavor is recomended. Get the blandest possible. I'm going to try that with Madam who's 5 yrs old but seemingly has never eaten anything other than dry food..she loves my handcream but don't think that's good for her

Sounds like a pretty good idea, every once in a while. But I'm of the opinion that even babies don't need canned baby food, so I'm not Gerber's biggest fan

Doesn't have to be Gerbers baby food; something creamy that the kitty would like_ I guess it reminded Madam of Lax-air because after licking off my finger she licks the top of her paw like when we put LA on it..I guess she would ingest more hair that way..oh-well
