Frenchie Eats…

Saturday, July 2, 2005

Frenchie contemplates cornflakes... Clare Eats is sponsoring a weekend kitty event, so here is my kitty, Frenchie looking all haughty. We love to feed our cat organic wheatgrass, which we buy in the produce section. Frenchie moves in for the kill.Occasionally Frenchie steals tortilla chips and saltine crackers from our meals… she’s all about the salty carbs! We also love to spoil her with the drained water from our tuna cans.

Sweets has prompted me to consider our cat’s diet more closely. We feed her Iams dry food, which I have always regarded as healthy for my cat. But I wonder if this is just the equivalent to human’s fast food for our cat? While I am interested in eating grown products that are organic or sustainable- what about my pet? Given that we feed our cat only dry food, perhaps there is room in her diet for a homemade cat food supplement. I cook for those I love, it only makes sense to thoughtfully bring my pet into the fold.

Ooh Frenchie is so gorgeous!

Kiri eats Raw hunks of Meat, raw fish (occasionaly),raw chicken, raw eggs(1 per week), and exe cat biscuits (because I cant find a good cat supplement in Australia).

If I want to give my cats a treat, I give them yogurt. They absoloutely love it. It’s tough to make your own, but easy to enough to find organic.

Fascinating! Would have never thought to lower my yogurt spoon to my kitty…

I never even thought about this. Now I feel like I’ve been a slacker. Poor Benzene 7, I’m off to buy her grass now!

Yea… good to hear from you Leslie- who wins the contest for cat with the coolest name, Benzene 7.

You know, my grandfather used to cook for his 2 dogs… chicken and rice and veggies. They loved it too. I feel like I’ve seen organic cat food somewhere.

I have a dehydrator, and in the past I made cat treats by dehydrating a mixture of tuna, parmesan cheese, brewers yeast and some other tidbits. It’d be interesting to work on an organic cat treat using some of the foods you might be eating already.

  • Cute idea!
    I used to have laying around a cat cookie recipe that came with a fish cookie cutter. It too called for brewers yeast. Hmmm where is that recipe?
