You see, being fabulous isn’t only about sass, attitude, walking with a supermodel strut as if you’re wearing furry little “come-foof-me-pumps”, never spitting when hissing, and always smoking with a cigarette holder. No, my cutesykits, to BE fabulous, we must FEEL fabulous.
And to feel fabulous, we diva dolls must indulge ourselves both INSIDE and out. We must not only cultivate inner poise and prettyness, we must EAT properly. A kitty without proper nutrition is like a plant in poorly soil … and we must never, never wilt, wrinkle or, heaven forbid, lose our girlygirly figures! It's all about healthy, my honeys!
As my good friends at CatNutrition.org point out in their open letter to veterinarians, Have you ever seen a barn cat barbecue and dehydrate its mouse dinner and top it off with a dessert of corn gluten meal soufflé? Or heard of a cat that went hunting for rice grains or oatmeal for breakfast? I think NOT! And many popular cat food brands are made from meat industry WASTE products: condemned/contaminated protein from slaughterhouses, road kill, and even euthanized companion animals … EEEEWWWW!! Barfybarf!!
If it’s unfit for humans, we finicky felines must turn our prissy little tails on it. I have insisted that our humans feed us only the best cat food by serving us healthy homemade cat food here at ArtsyCatsy, adapted from a diva-friendly recipe I found in the Veterinarians Guide to Natural Remedies for Cats I share it now with you, then I simply must return to my tiara and boa.
Ta-ta and bon apetit, Dearies!
Homemade Cat Food Recipe
* 2 whole (preferably organic) chickens (boiled, de-skinned, de-boned and chopped – reserve broth)
* 2 containers organic vegetable baby food (without onion powder, toxic to cats)
* 3 jars chicken baby food
* 6-8 teaspoons canola oil
* 6-8 teaspoons flax oil
* 6-8 teaspoons fish oil
* 5-7 rounded tablespoons human-grade bone meal (We use Solgar Bone Meal Powder with Vitamin B-12 from the health food store)
* One 6 ½ ounce can minced clams with juice (for taurine – a MUST)
* 1-2 or more cups reserved broth (to make it Lucy-juicy!)
Mix all ingredients well, and freeze in ½ to 1 cup portions in snack or sandwich bags. Thaw bags in hot water or in microwave before serving. We adult divakitties will eat ½ to 1 cup per day.
