homemade diets for senior cats

Does anyone have and good recipes? I just rescued a senior persian from an animal shelter, and I'm having trouble getting her to eat. I got thinking that a homemade diet may be more tempting, but I want to make sure it's still balanced. She needs to gain quite a bit of weight, so I really worry about her not wanting to eat. She's being offered canned food right now(I've tried a could different brands).

Senior cat food

Try baby food. I have heard of using the meat baby foods to get cats to start eating. Hope this helps

Baby food can be good, but just be aware its not nutritionally balanced and shouldn't be fed long term. Also - be careful it doesn't have any onion in it. Onion is toxic to cats.
