Easy Homemade Cat Food Recipe
by Niko Gabriel Salgado

Occasionally treating your cat to homemade meals is a delightful and enjoyable activity for both you and your furry companion. When integrated into a well-rounded diet, homemade food offers various nutritional advantages for your cat.

Preparing meals at home also offers insight into your cat’s dietary needs and preferences. This is because it gives you the opportunity to  observe your cat and see what he or she eats, and to consider his or her dietary needs in preparing the meals.

Can cats eat fish?

Fresh fish mirrors  a cat’s natural diet in the wild and is especially appetizing to cats. Assuming the cat does not have a fish allergy and  this is integrated within a well-balanced diet, fish serves as a beneficial protein source.

But fish alone does not provide the necessary nutritional balance for cats. Despite fish containing components such as omega-3 fatty acids and protein with amino acids, cats require a broader range of nutrients.

Please check with your veterinarian first when introducing a new diet. Make sure to also feed your pet in moderation.

Fish with carrots and malunggay

Prep time: 3 minutes

Cook time:  10 minutes

Total time: 13 minutes

Servings: 3 bowls

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 100g fish meat (bones or tinik have been removed)
  • ¼ medium-sized carrot, grated
  • ¼ cup malunggay leaves, finely chopped
  • 250mL water

Recipe Instructions:

  1. Fill a pot with water and put the fish inside.
  2. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. When the fish is cooked, turn off the stove. Get the fish and remove the bones or tinik. Make sure to put back only the flesh or meat of the fish in the pot.
  4. Pour the carrots and malunggay into the pot. The heat will cook the vegetables while cooling down.

Cats can eat the bones  of fish but only if you grind them. They cannot break down big fish bones.  They might choke on these. Make sure to remove the big fish bones and give only the meat if you do not have a meat or vegetable grinder.

If you have a grinder, you can put the  boiled big fish in the grinder to grind the bones. Boiling the fish with the bone  will make the bones soft, and make it easier to ground this.
