I just made a batch of homemade food that the cats loved upon trying!
Tuna with Salmon and Apples
1 can of tuna in spring water
4 salmon bones (tail ends, fillets removed)
Boil some water in a pot, just enough to cover the bones. Add a few rosemary leaves. Boil the salmon bones till meat is cooked. Remove the salmon meat from the bones, making sure all bones are removed. Keep the stove on, replace the bones into the pot to make the broth. Chop apples into small cubes and add to the pot. Boil till the broth thickens. Add tuna to the salmon meat, mixing evenly. Pour the broth into the fish meat and cool before serving. Yummy!
I tried it out on Sayang first, she loved it! I think the apples did it for her, she likes vegetables and fruits. Then I served some toScooter, who gorged himself on all the cats’ shares. Slinky enjoyed it too, especially the broth, she licked all their bowls so clean.
The cost of the food is about $3.70, for a portion that is about 300gm. Only marginally cheaper than canned food, but we are running low on our supply. Fish is more expensive than chicken, but they seem to enjoy it so. Can’t wait till they get more at lunchtime!
