  1. 1

    Making your own cat food requires some trial and error. Understand before attempting to feed a cat that it has its own particular likes and dislikes when it comes to food. Some cats prefer meat and some fish. That said, many cat owners say fish is not a good food for cats. Check out if your cat has an inclination for a fish diet.

  2. 2

    Preparing the food is simple. Many cats like to eat their food raw, but you can lightly cook the products if your cat seems hesitant faced with raw products. Chicken is a good choice for a rounded feline diet. Grind a combination of white, dark, and organ meat (such as kidneys and liver) in a food processor until a soft consistency something like canned products.

  3. 3

    Add supplements. Check out pet stores near you for important additions to meat products. Think of these like you would human supplements, the important every day vitamins for strength, energy and health.

  4. 4

    Try preparing the food in different ways. Your cat will prefer certain consistencies. Also vary the meat products. Your cat will respond to what they like.

  5. 5

    Remember that cat food should be offered fresh. After half an hour the cat will lose interest and the product will begin the process of growing bacteria. The product can be stored for long periods in tightly closed jars in the refrigerator. Remember to make large batches of food so you don't have to constantly make more for your hungry pets.
