Raw Food Recipe for Cats

This is a totally grain free raw diet mix for  cats.

1 pound of ground turkey
Either: 1 turkey liver or 2 ounces of chicken liver.
Either: 1 turkey heart or 2 chicken hearts
Either : 1 turkey gizzard or 3.5 ounces of chicken gizzards.
1 raw egg yolk
1 lightly cooked egg white (never feed egg white raw)
2 tablespoons of pure canned pumpkin (not canned pumpkin pie mix)
16-32 ounces of water

For supplements:

1400mg calcium – when you’re shopping for calcium, look for “calcium carbonate” and find on the nutrition label where it says “elemental calcium” to figure out how many tablets to use. You can grind them in a coffee grinder or just beat the snot out of them with a meat mallet. 

1000mg of Taurine

100mg of B-complex ( If you find B-50, you’d use 2 tablets or B-25 would be 4 tablets and so on.)

500mg of salmon oil.

2500 IU of Vitamin A
250 IU of Vitamin D
1000 IU of Vitamin E
1 teaspoon powdered gelatin

The serving size is 2-3% of the cat’s body weight, so an average 10 cat will thrive on about 2-3 ounces of that raw mix per day. You should offer  enough food for her target weight, so if you want her to get up to, say, 6-7 pounds , then they only need to eat 2-2.25 ounces per day.

That mix above should last about 2 weeks, so portion it out and freeze it accordingly, to keep it from spoiling.

Never keep thawed food out more than 1 day and most times, thaw it right before feeding  it works best.
