In case of homemade recipe or half-and-half recipe, not all meat or fish are offered for all cats. Because recipes must be given every day, you need meat or fish that can cover the needs for proteins and amino acids.
Canned tuna ?
Tuna is naked fish at the top of the food chain. It is quite possible to give a recipe with tuna. But if given every day for months or years, it can become toxic. So it's best to limit tuna to one day a week. This is a precaution.
Some cats digest a small amount of cooked starch well, others don't. So there are several ways to feed a cat, depending on its individual characteristics.
All kibble contains starch. Some trays/boxes contain others do not. In household ration, you have the choice to add or not.
In case of industrial or half-and-half recipe including kibble, even if the homemade diet part is starch-free, the food contains starch.
The addition of starch is not possible in our recipes in the case of a half-and-half diet.
In case of a full homemade diet recipe, it is possible to choose whether or not to add a starchy food.
If your cat tolerates kibble and starch well, you can definitely add a little starchy. It will have to be cooked on the day of distribution.
If you do not add any, the essential glucose will come from neoglucogenesis from proteins.
If your cat doesn't like it at all or has never eaten vegetables
> choose "No vegetables"... you will have to add wheat bran: it does not take up space, mixes with coza oil and Vit'i5 and allows to bring essential fiber to digestive comfort the time to make him accept vegetables.
You can add a small amount of zucchini (> fruit > zucchini: small amount) to its homemade recipe to gradually accustom it.
> choose "Few vegetables" or "Normal"...
if you choose a list of several vegetables, you can give one of these vegetables, a mixture of several or alternate them, the amount in the recipe corresponds to the total amount to be given in the day.
A neutered and sedentary cat has a reduced caloric need, but an intact appetite.
Once accustomed to consuming vegetables, one can increase the amount to bring more volume to the ration. You can also choose lower-calorie vegetables to bring even more: zucchini is well adapted to this context.
In some situations, there may be few suitable vegetables, for medical reasons.
My favorites among their favorites: Olive (fruit), Plain yogurt (choose one with milk and ferments only as ingredients, it's lactose-free), shelled shrimp tail (only one!)...
All the treats available when you order a recipe are taken into account in the final recipe.
Once you have chosen the treat, you need to choose the amount you want to give from a list of quantities that you can give, taking into account the characteristics of the cat
Often asked, this question currently only has a scientifically proven answer for one situation: sterilized and sedentary cats (who do not have free access to the outside).
Scientific studies show that a very predominantly wet diet (more than 75%) is better for the health of the cat, in particular is less at risk of diabetes.
What to do ?
It is a question of giving a majority of wet food "complete food for cat", whether it is a balanced homemade diet (meat + vit'i5 + oil + vegetables) or can, poach, tray... or a mixture of homemade and wet commercial pet food -count between 150g and 200g of wet food for a 4 to 5kg at per day, it may depend on the composition of course-
and only a very limited amount of kibble: maximum 25%, that's about 10 grams of kibble per day for an adult cat weighing 4 to 5 kg.
Yes ! No more distribution at will!
Attention it is also necessary to respect the behavior of the cat, and to give him 4 meals per day at least:
we can thus give food in the morning when we get up, in the morning before leaving the house, when we return (regardless of the time), and late in the evening. We can give the croquettes in a game device for the day or the night.
For amateur cats, you can also add additional diced zucchini.
You can prepare the household ration for a week, keep it cool for 2 days of food and freeze 5 portions. Thaw in the fridge a portion for the next day, and distribute in 4 times over 24 hours.
You can also prepare 7 small doses of 10 grams of kibble, to be sure not to give more.
It is less expensive !
Even counting meat, Vit'i5, rapeseed oil and vegetables... It costs less to feed a cat well on a propoer homemade diet than on wet commercial food.
A homemade diet formulated by a vet nutrition specialist is highly adjustable to the individual characteristics of your cat.
You have to go shopping! The rest is easy:
Canola oil bottle in the fridge, Vit'i5 in the cupboard, the vegetables can be canned green beans or frozen sliced zucchini, you just have to buy the meat for 15 days.
In the homemade diet, you have to have the right recipe and follow it:
mix Vit'i5 and canola oil, then add the cooked vegetables, mix, then add slightly cooked meat/fish, mix... It's ready!
You can freeze this mixture and thaw it one day for the next in the fridge: Count 40 minutes of preparation for 1 or 2 weeks of food for your cat.
-Choose a mash where it is written: "complete food for cats", with the target of a cat having the characteristics of yours "sterilized adult cat..."
-Choose a kibble for cat
-Order a recipe for a half-household, half-commercial Cuisine-a-crocs ration, adapted to your cat, indicating the mash and kibble you have chosen...
- Weigh the quantities distributed
- Weigh your cat every month, at the same time of the week and day, and on the same scale (a kitchen scale for example)...
Is her weight stable? The amount of food is correct.
-Look at your cat: the quality and quantity of droppings, the softness of the coat, its tone, its muscle mass... These are good criteria that reflect an appropriate diet
