10 Perfect Cat Reciesps You’ll Ever See

How can you make sure that your cat is getting the nutrition he needs? Are you tired of seeing the same brands on the shelf that have had recalls recently? Can you do better than mass-produced cat food without paying exorbitant prices for gourmet store-bought cat food? Yes, you can! Make your cat’s food yourself! If you want to feed your cat nutrient-rich, super healthy meals, this is the book to help. There are many cat food recipes around today, but I have hand-picked the best for this book. I have prepared most of them for my own cat, so the recipes have the four-paw seal of approval. Depending on the age and health of your cat, you may want specialized recipes, and I have you covered there, too. I include recipes for cats with kidney problems and other health issues that can benefit from feeding with specific ingredients. Whether your cat is young or old, or has special needs, this is the best way to ensure that your cat gets just what he needs to stay healthy. These recipes are simple enough for almost anyone to make, and all the ingredients are researched to be healthy for cats. With human recipes, you can frequently add ingredients, but many human foods are toxic to cats. Just below, I am including a list of foods that cats should NOT eat. Have fun making your kitty happy!
