    Hello all, we've recently rescued a Devon Rex and I've purchased a Bengal to be his brother. We're really in love with our kitties and wanted to make them food from scratch rather than giving them mass produced stuff.

    Do any of you have amazing kitten and cat recipes? The Devon is nearly 9 months, the Bengal is 3 weeks (still with his mumma)

    Here are some photos for your enjoyment.

    They are so cute. How great that you want to make food for your furbabies. No matter what recipe you get, I would suggest okaying it with your vet. Hope you have many happy, healthy years with your adorable babies.

    Welcome to the forum!

    It's much harder to feed cats from home than dogs and especially kittens who have different nutritional needs. There are supplements that must be added to kittens and cats' diets if you do not use commercially prepared foods or they will become ill.You should definitely check with your vet. There ARE some good commercially prepared cat foods. The main thing is to go for grain-free and gluten free foods. Cats are what are called obligate carnivores, which means they need MEAT- but when hunting in the wild they get certain nutrients from eating their entire kill that you cannot duplicate just by giving them meat. One problem is that it is not safe to give cats meat and chicken bones, whole. Cats always need PLENTY of water available. Most opinions are that home cooked foods are not as good for them as raw but again, that's very tricky to pull off. Your vet can give you details.

    Here is some info:

    This is a commercially prepared raw foods with the nutrients added:

    Welcome to our forum Satyne! Adorable kittens. I wish you many years of pleasure with them!

    I do not have cats but I do feed my dogs a raw food diet. If I had cats I would definitely go that route with them as well. 14 Years ago when I started feeding a raw diet my vet at the time told me I could kill my dog. He was a little behind the times in his views and I think it is total nonsense that an informed pet owner prepared to put the research and effort in to it cannot home feed a cat. What did owners do before the '50's when there was no commercial food?
    I have recipes somewhere around here for home cooked or raw meals for cats and kittens. Time is a little tight today but I will look them up and post them here for you to look over. Certainly supplementation is a necessity and as Saralaya says before you go ahead run your proposed feeding plan by your vet. He or she will be able to tell you what might be missing and give you the appropriate supplements. Doing your homework is imperative.

    I've wanted a Devon or Cornish Rex for years! Unfortunately, my dogs don't like cats.
