6 Homemade Recipes Your Cat Will Love

6 Homemade Recipes Your Cat Will Love

Want your cat to be part of the family and make them something from scratch too?

Well, look no further! We’ve scoured the internet and found six of the best homemade recipes your cat will love! 

Chicken And Rice

Chicken and rice are a quick, easy-to-make recipe that you can take from the dinner you’ve already made! 


  • Plain cooked chicken
  • Broth
  • Cooked rice
  • Nutritional support additives that you may have


Cooking chicken and rice is even easier than making dinner for yourself with a few simple steps:

  1. Cook your chicken. Do not season the chicken. If you are taking chicken from your dinner, get it before you season it.
  2. Cook your rice. Make sure that it is soft.
  3. Put the two together! 
  4. Store any leftovers as you would your leftovers in the fridge. 

Tip: Your cat probably won’t like crunchy rice. Add more water than you’re used to for the softest rice possible. 

Raw Chicken Liver

Your family isn’t going to break down the door for raw chicken liver, but your cat certainly will. 


  • Raw chicken liver
  • Water
  • Any additional raw products, like raw chicken wings


  1. Puree your raw ingredients with water.
  2. Pulse until you get the right texture with small bits that your cat can eat.
  3. Serve to your cat or freeze the excess in small portions. 

Chicken Feet Soup

I can’t stand looking at chicken feet, but it is a delicacy for your furry friend! 


  • Chicken feet
  • Water


  1. Boil the chicken feet and water together.
  2. Please do not add any spices, though it may seem tempting. Though bland, it is best for your cat!
  3. Serve once the soup cools. Do not serve hot. 

Special Treat: You might gag at the process, but cut those toes off your chicken feet for extra treats for your cat. 

Catnip Soup (Or Tea?)

The actual name of this dish will be up to you – but consider it your cat’s at-home Starbucks order.


  • Catnip, dried if possible
  • Water


There are a few ways to make this dish, depending on the available resources.

For a “soup”-style dish:

  1. Boil water and add your dried catnip.
  2. Allow to cool and serve to your cat.

For tea:

  1. Steep your catnip like you would like your loose tea. 
  2. Cool and serve as usual. 

The “lazy” way:

  1. Add fresh catnip to a bottle or container of water.
  2. Shake the water and catnip mixture together until combined. The catnip will not dissolve. 

Kitty Cat Salad

Most of us know by now that cats need meats in their diet to stay strong and healthy, but you can make your cat a fun salad as a change of pace! 


  • Shredded or grated zucchini 
  • Chopped alfalfa 
  • Low-sodium chicken broth or juice from canned fish
  • Cooked meat or fish to crumble on top
  • Catnip, if you want to go the extra mile


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. If you are adding any protein that is not cooked, cook it and then add it to the top.
  3. Add catnip garnish for fun!
  4. Give your cat a small amount in a bowl as a treat, but do not make the salad part of your cat’s regular diet. 

Hint: Cat turning his nose at your delectable salad? Swap the zucchini for grass outside. It’ll act like a laxative, but it’ll be amazing for a cat with an upset stomach or hairballs!

Homemade Treats

Did you know you can make cat treats in the comfort of your home? You can!

The best part of this recipe is that you can choose whatever ingredients your cat likes most! 


  • One egg
  • 1 cup of flour
  • Your cat’s favorite foods, like chicken, tuna, catnip, or salmon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees while you make your treats.
  2. Add all your ingredients to a food processor, including the egg and flour. Pulse until you get a dough consistency. Add water if the mixture is too crumbly. 
  3. Roll your dough into small balls and line them on a cookie sheet. Make the treats a manageable size. 
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until crispy. Cooking time may vary based on the ingredients that you use.
  5. Allow to cool and give treats to your cat. 

Reasons Why Homemade Food Is Popular

You might think that making homemade food or snacks for your cat is over-hyped, but there are good reasons for it! 

People love to make food for their cats for the following reasons:

  • You can control what goes into your cat’s food.
  • You can save money by using products you already have in your fridge.
  • Homemade food can be a special treat for your cat.
  • You can exclude certain ingredients from your cat’s diet, like grains, preservatives, or anything else that affects your cat’s digestive health.

Making food at home for your cat isn’t for everything, but give it a try! 

You can use it to bond with your family – furry or otherwise.
