Rafaelo's Meatloaf for Cats

"A home-cooked meal for your feline friend! My cats love this, try and see if your cat does too! If you're serving this to kittens, omit the liver or use just a little for added taste. Also remember to treat your cat daily to a vitamin pill if you're serving him/her mainly home-made food - you can crush it and mix into the meat loaf serving. The number of servings depends on the age and activity level of your cat."

    Ok, I have been waiting for ground beef to go on sale to make this. The only liver the store had was double the price of the beef, so that got nixed in favor of a bit of tomato paste, I was making this for a cat who licks spaghetti sauce. Super easy to mix up in a big bowl--very much like people meatloaf, but no spice. I put it in a big loaf pan and it cooked fine in the amount of time given. Bart was in the kitchen singing throughout the preparation, but he couldn't have possibly suspected it was for him. I made the whole kilo but that is A LOT of meatloaf for one cat, and next time would cut the recipe in half. I'll freeze, but that is also a lot of freezer space devoted to cat meatloaf. DH thought this was the niftiest idea he had ever heard of, and gave it to Bart after it had cooled. Bart couldn't believe his fortune, and was so happy with the juiciness of it, he came out and wiped his face on my oriental rug. I have never seen a cat do that before, thought it was a dog thing. So, it was a hit. Bart is a big cat, and only seems interested in a half of the recommended serving at a time, which means that this made 30 cat servings, kind of too much, thus, need to cut the recipe. the other two cats in the house won't touch it. I ate a piece, but it really neede salt and pepper for me. Fun, cheap if the beef is on sale, I would do it occasionally as a treat.

    Just an FYI - 1 kg of ground beef is 2.2 pounds. A little more or less wouldn't hurt the recipe. For cost reasons I used chicken liver. My cat was only so so on it so I gave it to my sister and her cats love it. So do her dogs.
