homade cat food

Over the years I have accumulated quite a few cats and want to cook for them instead of buying commercial foods. I feel I can better spend my money this way for them. Does anybody have a good healthy recipe for lots of cats? ANNA

I'm actually working on a modified form of a leadbeaters mix for felines.
I will let you know recipes once tested and if I have any success.

These are two of my recpies:

Food for 1 cat, 10 days

720 g beef
480 g minced beef
400 g heart (I use heart from pork but heart from beef is good)
150 g liver (pork or beef)
3 egg yolks (appr. 60 g)
90 g steamed veggies
5 tbls calcium lactate
1½ tbsl fish oil or flax seed oil
2,5 ml salt substitute

The veggies I use for this recipe (not very important that you use the same) are broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. Steamed and mixed. I feed all the meat (and the yolks) raw. If you have a grinder I recommend you grind the liver and the heart. The beef that isn't minced should be cut in whatever size your cat prefers.

For the following recipe you need a grinder or you need to have someone else grind it for you

Food for 1 ca, 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 paprika
112 g yellow paprika
5 ¼ 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.

My cats don't seem to be to fond of beef so I usually don't feed them that but they LOVE this chicken recipe

In regards to your chicken recipe, is this fed raw or is everything cooked first?

I'm a vegetarien, so correct me if i'm wrong, but with all that ground beef, liver and heart ect... doesn't it get expensive?

It shouldn't be too expensive, you'll have to check it out in your area...

Do you freeze it and portion it out? Is okay to do with mixed raw and cooked food?
