It's rare that a cat gets to choose between homemade or store bought cat food, but since Kohaku's owner is a talented cook, he gets to be picky.
When it comes to feeding your cat and choosing an appropriate food, you probably head to your local pet store. Maybe you choose your cat's favorite brands or flavors of food, or maybe you buy a variety of flavors to keep your cat interested. But have you ever given thought to feeding your cat homemade cat food?
Kohaku, the cat in this video, is lucky enough to be owned by a pretty talented cook. While Kohaku's owner typically makes him homemade food once a year on his birthday, this video provides a bit of insight into all of the work that goes into creating homemade cat food.
Take a look - and keep an eye on Kohaku; he's absolutely adorable throughout the whole process!
So, what do you think? Want to try your hand at making homemade cat food? Before you jump in, there are a few things you should consider. First of all, making food is time-consuming. It's a process, and if you change your cat to a homemade food-only diet, then you need to make sure that you have the time required to make all of your cat's food.
Secondly, when you make food, you need to make sure that it's nutritionally appropriate for your cat. When you buy manufactured food, the food is nutritionally balanced to provide your cat with all of the vitamins, minerals, and calories that he needs.
If you make your own food, you'll need to avoid highly fatty items like the fattier parts of fish, and often you will need to supplement the food with vitamins and minerals. It can take some serious research to find recipes that work for your cat, so make sure that you do your homework and also consult with your vet before changing your cat's diet.
