Homemade cat food is the best because you control the ingredients and how it’s made!
But homemade cat food is more complex than people realize.

Step 1: Plan
Plan out at least 4 months for the transition. You will focus on one new recipe per month.
Why use different recipes? Because variety is key. Wild cats eat 5-7 different proteins to complete their diet.
Step 2: Prepare
Have a conversation with your cat about the new changes. Take your cat to the vet for urinalysis, fecal, bloodwork, and weight.
If your cat is overweight/obese ask the doctor what an ideal weight is and a safe weight loss plan for your cat.
NOTE: Do not reduce calories until your cat is eating homemade cat food. Upgrade the food first. Please watch the video for weight loss instructions!
Step 3: Recipes
I didn’t create these recipes. Please use them as is or do not use them at all. There are NO substitutions!

Step 5: Start the transition
You will start the transition with 1 meal. The remaining meals will be 100% current food.
Add an additional 5% new food and subtract an additional 5% current food each day.
Day 1- 95% current food, 5% new food
Day 2- 90% current food, 10% new food
Day 3- 85% current food, 15% new food
And so on. Once the first meal reaches 100% new food, start the transition on the next meal.
Use a new recipe for each transition meal! Variety is key!
