8 Easy Home-Cooked Cat Food Recipes to Treat your Cat


Cooking for your cat at home may appear to be a hassle and not worth the effort, but it is critical if your cat suffers from allergies or weight issues. While you can see what ingredients are in a store-bought meal, cooking one at home puts you in complete control, which is always a good sign.

So, if you have some spare time and want to give your cat a healthy and tasty treat now and then, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most popular cat recipes, which you can see for yourself by scrolling down.

#1 Raw Chicken Liver and Salmon


This is a very simple recipe, which is why it is on the list. Nobody wants to spend hours cooking for their cat, after all. Your cat will love it because it contains the liver as one of the primary sources of protein. As you may know, many cats adore the liver, and the abundance of vitamins and minerals found in the liver is not a bad thing either. However, this should not be a daily meal as it can cause problems in the long run, but using it as a treat occasionally is a great idea.


  1. 50g raw chicken liver
  2. 50g raw beef kidney
  3. 100g raw chicken heart
  4. 700g raw whole chicken wings
  5. 100g raw salmon with bones
  6. 1 tsp taurine supplement powder
  7. 2 cups water


  • To begin, in a food processor, puree all of the organ meat with water.
  • Then, add the remaining ingredients while using a meat grinder to thoroughly combine everything.
  • It is ready to serve, and any leftovers can be frozen for later use.

#2 Grain-Free Chicken Raw Cat Food


If your veterinarian has advised you to feed your cat a variety of supplements and they are refusing to eat them no matter how hard you try, this may be the recipe for you. It simply incorporates the most important vitamins required for a cat’s health into the chicken, masking the smell and taste. Your cat will undoubtedly enjoy this, and it is surprisingly simple to prepare. If your cat is in desperate need of another supplement, you can certainly substitute the vitamins used in this recipe.


  1. 1 large chicken
  2. 3 egg yolks
  3. ½ stick unsalted butter, melted
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. ½ cup water
  6. ½ cup wild-caught salmon oil
  7. 12 B-50 Complex vitamin capsules
  8. 6 vitamin E capsules
  9. 1 tsp taurine amino acid powder


  • Grind the entire chicken, excluding the spine and wings, in a meat grinder to maintain a balanced meat-to-bone ratio.
  • Now stir in the remaining ingredients, including all of the vitamins and minerals, until thoroughly combined.
  • The simplest way to store this recipe is to place it in ice cube trays and freeze it for later use.
  • When it’s time to serve this to your cat, thaw it out in the refrigerator the night before.

#3 Grain-Free Meatloaf


If you don’t mind spending a little more time in the kitchen and want to make something special for your cat, this recipe is for you. While it is simple to prepare, it is grain-free, making it ideal for cats with sensitive stomachs. Although there is no shortage of grain-free food for cats these days, wouldn’t it be better for them to eat a diet similar to that of their wild counterparts? As a result, this recipe calls for organic and high-quality ingredients.


  1. 1kg organic ground beef, 90% lean
  2. 1kg organic ground turkey thighs (skinless and boneless)
  3. 1kg organic mixed chicken organs, ground
  4. 115g organic squash meat
  5. 2 cans of sardines in water
  6. 60g organic mixed berries
  7. 60g organic broccoli
  8. 60g organic kale


  • First, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Shred the squash finely using a cheese grater.
  • Use a food processor to puree the kale, berries, shredded squash, broccoli, and sardines together.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the ground meat and puree mixture and set aside until everything is thoroughly combined before transferring the mixture to a ceramic baking dish.
  • Bake it for an hour and then set it aside to cool before serving. You can also freeze the leftovers because this recipe has 17 servings.

#4 Sardine Oat Porridge


If you’re in a hurry and don’t have a pantry full of ingredients, this is an excellent recipe to whip up quickly. I mean, who doesn’t have oats in their house? Sardines can also be found almost anywhere. So, if your cat is hungry and you don’t want to spend hours cooking them something, try this recipe. I’m sure your cat will appreciate it.


  1. ½ cup oats
  2. 1 tin sardine in water
  3. 1¼ cups water


  • Cook your oats as usual, according to the package directions, and set them aside to thicken.
  • When the porridge is completely cool, mash the sardines with a fork and mix them in.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate for a few days.

#5 Chicken Feet Broth


A broth is an excellent way to get rid of unused chicken parts while also providing your cat with additional nutrients. Chicken feet are beneficial because they contain glucosamine and chondroitin, which are essential for your senior cat’s joint health. Not only that, but this broth is quick and easy to prepare.


  1. 1.8kg chicken feet
  2. 3L water


  • In a pressure cooker, combine the chicken and water and cook on high pressure for at least 45 minutes.
  • Even if it is cooked, do not open the lid to allow the steam to escape.
  • You can serve this broth as is to give them a hydration boost, or you can mix it into their daily diet to add flavour and nutrients.

#6 Homemade Chicken Soup


Chicken soup is a great comfort food that people enjoy eating when they are sick or just want something warm. So why shouldn’t cats enjoy it as well? It is not only simple to prepare, but it will also encourage your cat to drink and replenish their hydration levels, which is critical for their overall health.


  1. 2 chicken legs with skin and bone
  2. 1 carrot
  3. 1 stalk of celery
  4. 800ml water


  • To begin, finely chop the carrots and celery and place them in a pot with the chicken legs and water.
  • Allow it to come to a boil, then reduce to low heat for at least 90 minutes.
  • Once cooked, you can freeze the soup in ice cube trays for later use or serve it immediately after it has cooled slightly.

#7 Homemade Beef and Vegetable Soup


If your cat isn’t a fan of chicken but you still want to provide them with hydration and extra nutrients, a beef soup will suffice. This is an excellent alternative for cats who are allergic to chicken or prefer beef to chicken. If your cat refuses to eat soup in any way, you can always mix a little broth into their dry food to get them used to it.


  1. Beef bones
  2. 4 tsp apple cider vinegar
  3. Carrot
  4. Green peas 
  5. 800ml water


  • Finely chop the carrots and green peas and place them in a pot with water, along with the beef bones, and add vinegar to the water.
  • Allow the soup to simmer on low heat until all of the meat residues has fallen off the bones, then strain out the meat and vegetables.
  • Let the beef bones simmer for another 20 hours before straining the mixture to obtain a clear broth.
  • Freeze the mixture or serve it right away after it has cooled.

#8 Homemade Catnip Broth


If your cat isn’t drinking enough water and no other soup recipes are working, catnip may be the answer, as long as your cat likes catnip. However, we recommend speaking with a vet before feeding them this soup because it can cause nausea in some cats if consumed in large quantities, but it should be fine if used as a treat once in a while.


  1. 3 tbsp dried catnip
  2. ¼ tsp instant chicken broth, powdered
  3. 240ml warm water


  • Fill a bottle with warm water and add the catnip and broth powder.
  • Shake vigorously until the powder has completely dissolved and the water has a slight green tint from the catnip.
  • Keep it in the fridge and don’t give your cat too much water at once when serving.

Wrapping it up

These are just a few of the thousands of recipes for homecooked meals for cats available on the Internet. While it is generally safe for your cat to eat these. We recommend first consulting with a veterinarian to determine whether a homecooked diet would be beneficial to your cat. After all, cooking for your cat at home not only takes a lot of time but is also generally more expensive.

We do hope, however, that you found these recipes useful. What is your feline’s favorite recipe? Do they eat vegetables at all, or do they prefer meat? Please let us know in the comments section below.
