Disclaimer: Cat food is carefully formulated to have all the nutrition that a cat needs. But from time to time, you may feel like branching out in the kitchen. So we have published this collection of Persian cat recipes submitted by our users. Please note that some recipes are to be prepared only for cats with specific health problems. As always, we encourage you to consult your vet about any dietary changes!

Directions - Part 1

SassyKat's Special Dinner


Acceptable for cats with diabetes or kidney problems


Chicken Pops

Frozen Chicken


  • A few cans of chicken (Premium Chunk Chicken Breast in Water)

Drain liquid from chicken into an easy-pour cup or bowl1. Pour the liquid into small ice cube trays (cocktail ice cube trays work nicely, as well as little square pill boxes available at most drug stores - only fill these half full). Freeze. Serve no more than 2 cubes at 1 time as a treat.


Raw Meal for Kitty

Ground Meat


  • 1 pound of ground meat: beef, lamb, chicken, or turkey - NO pork (Note: The coarser the ground, the better.)
  • 6 oz spring water or low-salt broth
  • 4 drops grapefruit seed extract
  • Approximately 2 cups fresh (uncooked or very lightly steamed) vegetables (finely chopped in the food processor) - for example, carrots, zucchini, etc. (Tip: Carrots are good to start with - they are sweet.)
