new to feeding this ok?

Here's what I've been feeding Willow, since i found out kibble is not that good for them. She eats this stuff up and already seems happy and her coat is shinier. This is for one scuse the small portions. No room to make bulk and divide.

1/2 cup chicken
1/2 cup ham or turkey
1 crushed kitty vitamin
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons water
1 egg yolk
1 fish oil capsule

sometimes i switch the meats around with lamb or pork, depending on what i have in the house.

also i've been considering giving her rib bones to chew the meat off of..they aren't so small she could choke are they?

I have no experience yet with homemade diets, so I'm not qualified to comment, but I wanted to say that it's great you're making an effort to provide a more natural diet. Did you make up the recipe yourself, or is this from a source?

After constantly getting frustrated with the ingredients in even the most 'premium' foods, I'm also looking into making a homemade diet, but haven't done the research yet. My biggest concern is that I'll miss something and won't provide complete nutrient needs.

I would take out the ham and use turkey instead. I have a book that says you can feed a cat a meal of fresh food that is not balanced once or twice a week. Such as a plate of chicken or turkey, a scrambled egg, cooked meat with a tiny bit of pasta or veggies etcetera. But if you're going to feed a cat on homemade food more than once or twice a week then you have to carefully do some research into what goes into a balanced homemade diet. Get a good book written by a good holistic vet or consult a holistic vet. I know nothing about it. Good luck to you.

Just curious about the 3 tablespoons of milk. I thought it was bad to give cats milk. I have thinking about eventually going to a homemade food but I don't know much about it either.
