I remember feeling a great sense of relief knowing that my cats were eating a diet that I had personally sourced and prepared for them – and that feeling continues.I don’t see myself ever going back to feeding commercial cat food after having fed a 100% homemade diet for the past 14 years.It is not difficult to make cat food but do your homework first and After spending a great deal of time reading and learning about the way commercial pet foods are processed, and the ingredients that go into many of these foods, I decided to start making my own cat food.I found that I was getting more and more frustrated with the species-inappropriate and low quality ingredients found in most commercial foods so this was a very easy decision for me to make.This subject is one of considerable debate among two – usually strongly divided – mindsets.The anti-raw folks are afraid of bacteria and parasites.Unfortunately, often neither group considers how the meat is sourced and they fail to see that one can Our goal is to feed a diet that nature intended for our carnivores – staying as close as possible to the form and nutritional composition that our cats would eat in a natural setting – while implementing safety strategies as discussed below. No human is – even board-certified veterinary nutritionists.None of us know exactly which are destroyed/damaged with the cooking process.
Note that dry kibble is very often contaminated with bacteria, fungal mycotoxins, insects and their feces, as well as being high in carbohydrates and plant-based (vs animal-based) proteins.

(A short note regarding dogs can be found at the bottom of this webpage. King is a fabulous writer and her book is a very enjoyable and easy-to-read essay discussing how she feeds her own beloved dog and why.) As this webpage explains (see Safety), there is a logical way to compromise between the two which will result in a diet that is safer and healthier than dry food, and is safer than some sources of raw ingredients – especially those that come from a supermarket and have spent time in a refrigerator versus a freezer.
Also, please consider purchasing by my colleague, Dr. It is my strong preference to feed a diet that is a safe balance between raw and cooked as described below.
