- Organic innards: Liver, heart, kidney, spleen and such
- Powdered psyllium husk, kelp, and dulse
- Cat vitamin supplements in powdered form
- Grinder, empty container jars, and spoon.
- Cut up the meat into large chunks and bite-sized squares. Grind the large chunks and store it in the freezer. Bag the bite-sized squares and place this in the fridge as well. You can also include the bones from the meat bit make sure to run it through the grinder.
- Take the innards and grind these up as well. Bag these, and then place these inside the fridge next to the meat.
- Take a bowl of water, crack open about four eggs and take the egg yolks out and place these on the bowl of water. Then, take the cat vitamin supplements and add these to the egg yolks and water. Whisk until everything is dissolved. This is your supplemental mixture.
- Take the meat and the innards from the fridge and add all of these to the supplemental mixture. Stir or blend all ingredients using a spoon.
- When you’re done mixing everything the meat, innards, and supplemental mixture, spoon this into the container jars and freeze. Always remember to label the date when you prepared the food.
- Microwave or thaw when feeding time arrives and make sure your cat consumes this in less than 30 minutes. Throw any unconsumed food out.
