My cat, Fee, is 22 years old(!), blind and has kidney disease, but his quality of life is still great thanks to daily subcutaneous fluids, a special diet, and daily supplements that lower his BUN and creatinine. For a change of pace from Fee's usual (costly) prescription diet, I occasionally make this for him. Diabetics need fiber and kidney kitties need to limit protein. The inclusion of brown rice addresses these issues. The ingredients as given are minced, but I drop everything into my Magic Bullet yielding the consistency of pate. You can freeze portions, too - handy! Time estimate includes the mixing of all ingredients, cooked and otherwise, and the final quick cook of the mixture that includes the eggs. <<<< UPDATE >>>> I just wanted to mention that Fee is 24 years old now, which is roughly 113 in human years!
