Raw Chicken Cat Food

Prep Time 40 mins
Course Main Course

Ingredients
  

  • 4.5 lbs chicken thighs, bone and skin included
  • 14 oz chicken hearts (can be substituted with a meat based source with 4000mg taurine supplement)
  • 7 oz chicken livers
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 whole eggs or yolks (if your cat likes them)
  • 200 mg Vitamin B supplement
  • 200 IU Vitamin E
  • dash of light iodized salt (Use sparingly. Too much salt is not good for your cat.)
  • 200 mg  Taurine

Instructions
 

  • Remove and discard roughly half of the skin and 20% of the bone.
  • Dice and slice most of thighs into small bite-sized portions.
  • Grind the rest of the thigh meat, bones, hearts, and liver. Stir until well blended.
  • In large bowl, combine all vitamin supplements, eggs, and salt. Add 2 cups of water. Eggs should be well whisked.
  • You will now have three main mixtures; sliced/sheared meat, ground meat/bone, and supplements beaten with eggs.  Combine and mix all ingredients thoroughly.
  • The leftovers must be stored in an airtight container that allows room for expansion as the food freezes. You can put a few days worth of the meal in the refrigerator and freeze the rest.
