My Natural Cat

Kilo, our seven month old kitten is loving his new food My Natural Cat by Feline Instincts! And I couldn't be happier! Since he loves raw organic ground chicken so much (better than anything else), I was wanting to make a complete and balanced food with the raw chicken that wouldn't be too complicated or involved and I found the perfect thing! My Natural Cat is a natural nutritional supplement mix that is AAFCO and veterinarian approved. All you do is add water, salmon oil, raw ground meat (organic is best), mix well and it's done!

Kilo loves it and will even eat it cold, right out of the refrigerator! Wow. I started with the trial size (plus chicken liver), which makes mix for four pounds of meat. I portioned it into what he will eat in a couple days and freeze the extra. I take them out of the freezer and put them in the refrigerator as needed. You don't want it to be in the refrigerator more than 2 or 3 days. He has been going through it so fast that I had to hurry and order the regular size bag of supplement mix. also has a supplement mix for kidney support and a supplement mix for dogs too! (Sorry, no trial size available for dogs.) 

Here's how easy it is to make:

You will need a meat grinder unless you buy the meat already ground. I bought an inexpensive one on Amazon for under $70 that works great and is easy to clean. 

I buy organic, boneless, skinless chicken breast and thighs at Costco.

When buying salmon oil, look for wild caught salmon oil due to farmed salmon being fed GMOs or the fish being GMO themselves. I found wild caught Alaskan salmon oil capsules (1,000 mg) at HEB.

Update 6/25/16: Kilo still loves his My Natural Cat raw food! I am now also making the dog version for our dog Duke, who loves it too!

Note: The raw chicken mix is one of the foods Kilo eats. His meals are rotated between that and other foods and sources of protein. It is important to feed a variety of foods and sources of protein. Cats are not meant to eat the same thing all the time any more than we are. Variety is the key!
