Last week we gave you some ideas to feed your dog with homemade treats. You can read it here.
This time it is the turn of your beloved cat to be spoiled!
To start, never forget that a cat is a carnivore! Meat or fish, it is imperative that its meal is prepared from one of these two elements. For the proportions, it should be about 20g of meat per kg of body weight.
• A good meat dish
Choose 130 grams of muscle to quickly cook in the oven. Cut into small pieces, cook with cooking fat and mix with 30 grams of mixed vegetables or cut into pieces. You can add a pinch of salt.
• A delicious fish dish
Choose the same proportions as for meat, 130 grams of mackerel about 120 or 130 g of swordfish, dogfish, trout, sardines, salmon, headless and boneless. Cook on the grill preferably, then chop or cut it into pieces. Mix with 30 or 40 g of cooked vegetables and add a little corn oil and salt.
• A treat with chicken or rabbit
Again, the same amount of chicken, rabbit or duck, boneless. Cut into small pieces, mix with very cooked rice and / or vegetables chopped into small pieces. If you want, add a pinch of salt and corn oil!
• Don't forget egg and cheese!
Cut a hard-boiled egg into pieces and mix together with 40 g of cheese. Remix all with vegetables, add corn oil and salt.
• Don't forget offal (liver is an excellent source of vitamins A and D, with the kidneys)!
Finally be aware that cats love vegetables. If they do not like it at the moment, they will get used to it! For example, zucchini is a vegetable that is very much appreciated by cats. In addition, the zucchini does not contain oxalic acid, so is a vegetable that can be given, even in large quantities to cats who have urinary problems.
Finally, here is a list of products that should not be given to cats
- Food for kids, sweets
- Bones (fish, poultry, and other animal)
- Chocolate, coffee, tea and other caffeine source
- Dog food
- Fat elements
- Grapes, raisins
- spoiled food
- Onions and garlic (raw, cooked, or powder)
- Raw eggs and meat
