As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat. – Ellen Perry Berkeley
When it comes to being pampered, cats love to receive it as much as possible. Many cat owners would love to pamper their cats to the fullest level .Cats being showed love especially when it comes to food
A balanced homemade cat food is considered as the best compared to varieties of commercially prepared food. It is only best to give your cat commercially prepared food just once in a while. A cat’s diet can include cooked food meanwhile raw food can be given just once in a while. Here are healthy recipes that can be prepared at home for your cat but I advise that before you engage in this it is good to get to your vet to be in line with the best for your cat.

Use a stainless steel pot, combine all the above ingredients. Add water to it. The quantity of water should be enough to cover the ingredients. Boil this mixture. Then, lower the heat. Allow it to simmer for 30 minutes. After that, place the pot aside and let it cool down. Next, blend all the ingredients together using a hand mixer.
