|That is ground chicken and wet food. These cats lose their minds over this stuff.|
Sheba cat food + ground turkey. My kittens are spoiled. I've been doing some reading and research on what to feed kitties for optimum heath. First of all, I learned that cats are carnivores. They need tons of protein. I never even knew that when I had Sophia (sometimes I feel bad about that). Anyway, the high end dry food is really expensive and I don't have the time or the financial resources to to a raw food diet. So, I've improvised by feeding the girls wet pate cat food mixed with cooked ground turkey, cooked chicken breast chunks, or cooked ground turkey. I buy the Sheba brand canned cat food when I can't make it to the pet specialty shop. The trick is reading the label and making sure that chicken, turkey, rabbit, etc. is the first ingredient--not chicken broth or meat by-product. Also, I rarely feed the girls fish. Fish, even for human consumption, is filled with mercury, phosphorus and magnesium, so imagine what is in cat food. It has also been linked to hyperthyroidism in older cats (that's what Sophia had). It's actually pretty easy and inexpensive to use the ground/cubed meat because the meat doesn't have to be lean, just free of bones. Bella and Stella freakin love this! And I figure I'm supplementing their regular food with more protein. Plus, it doesn't take that long to brown up some ground chicken and turkey or bake a couple chicken breasts. Yes. Yes. I know. I'm a cat lady.
