For cat lovers who have just brought home their new kitten, the idea of feeding it with homemade kitten food may seem ridiculous. The fact is that a kitten is just like a human infant baby; it needs certain nutritional needs to develop normally. To start with, kitten’s must get adequate amounts of calcium, protein and fat in their food. Kittens also require taurine, a fatty acid that supports feline eye and heart health. If you think that it is not possible for you to provide your kitten with kitty food, there are alternatives that you can give to it.
In addition to commercially available kitten food, a lot of new pet owners are now using homemade kitten recipes. These recipes are made from either fresh or dehydrated cooked meats or vegetables and include various spices and flavorings such as onions, garlic, hot sauce, vegetable oil, chicken broth, and other seasonings. These kitten food recipes require only plain water and a couple of changes in ingredients to make it taste and smell great.
When making these homemade kitten food meals, remember that they are easy to make, cheap, and nutritious. They are also very tasty and sweet. If your little kittens get over hungry, they will eat less than what they should and thus become obese. However, if you feed them right and give them regular meals along with fresh, wholesome, nutritious meals, they will grow up healthily. You can even take advantage of commercial kitten food by making homemade meals for your young cats.
Please note that a kitten’s nutrition needs are very important, especially in the first 3 months of life when they need essential vitamins and minerals. Always ensure you include the nutrients that they need so that health issues do not arise. If in doubt, always ask a vat.
