Simple recipes for cats to make at home

A balanced diet is also important for cats, even when we can’t get out easily: here are some simple recipes for cats to make at home.

These days of quarantine are certainly heavy for us humans, but for our beloved pets, it’s not easy either. Not being able to leave the house deprives them of exercise, a bit of entertainment, and often we also have to give up some purchases to spoil them. The first necessity is obviously a correct and balanced diet, and since we have some time to occupy, why not try to prepare homemade dishes for our cats? These simple recipes for cats will make us feel like great chefs, and are also great for the health of our furry pets.

Recipes for cats

The recipes are balanced and provide all the essential ingredients for cat health. But let’s make sure to alternate meals so that our cats receive all the necessary nutrients during this period of time. Maybe we can start experimenting with these cat recipes once a week, as an alternative to regular cat food. 

Of course we know how picky cats are, so they may prefer one dish over another. A bit like it also happens in us humans, after all! If desired, we can also modify them with different ingredients, always keeping an eye on which ones are suitable for our cats.

Breakfast for cats

To start the day, there is nothing better than a good breakfast, and what better delicacy than a nice pancake? For us it goes well with chocolate, fruit, maple syrup, but for our kitten some vegetables and cottage cheese will do.


  • 1 tablespoon of fat-free milk powder
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 3 tablespoons of cottage cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of grated vegetables (choose the ones you want)


  • Mix the milk powder with a little water.
  • Add the eggs and beat them well.
  • Place the mix in a small non-stick pan and cook over medium-low heat until cooked.
  • Flip the mix (like a pancake) and spread the cottage cheese and vegetables over half the surface 
  • Fold in half like an omelette, let cool and cut into small pieces to serve.

Chicken stew

A stew dish can be a great way to provide your cat with all the protein and nutrients it needs. Be careful when we use chicken, because its bones are dangerous, so we must bone it perfectly to avoid that the splinters of the bones can remain in our cat’s plate.


  • 1 whole chicken (preferably organic, in any case without hormones or antibiotics)
  • 2 cups of brown rice
  • 6 stalks of celery
  • 8 carrots (unpeeled, just washed well)
  • 2 or 3 yellow zucchini (you can replace them with pumpkin)
  • 2 or 3 courgettes
  • 1 crown of broccoli (small)
  • 1 handful of green beans


  • Wash the chicken, then place it in a large pot with water.
  • Cut the vegetables into pieces and add them to the pot.
  • Add the rice.
  • Cook the chicken until it almost comes off the bone, and until the vegetables are tender.
  • Completely de-bone the chicken. This is a very important part, because cooked chicken bones can break and splinters can cause intestinal problems.
  • Pour the stew into a blender and blend, or chop until all pieces are sized to fit a cat bite.
  • You can freeze individual portions in plastic food bags.

Diet chicken

A low calorie recipe, which can be suitable for both growing kittens and cats that need to be kept on a diet for a while. If our cat needs to stay fit, this recipe has a great balance of calories, protein and fat. Food supplements can be an excellent source of vitamins and nutrients to add to our cat’s food.


  • 100 gr of tuna (canned in water, without added salt)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of canola oil (or canola oil)
  • 2 bone meal tablets (a calcium supplement)
  • 1 tablet of vitamins minerals


  • Cook the egg, hard-boiled. Chop it up.
  • Chop up the supplement tablets.
  • Mix all the ingredients.
  • It can be served immediately, or we can put it in the fridge and warm it slightly before serving.

Lunch for diabetic cats

Cats are prone to many of the diseases that also affect us humans, and diet can greatly affect these conditions. This recipe was created for cats who have diabetes. Obviously, before using it we ask our vet for advice to make sure it is good for our cat, just to be safe.


  • ½ cup raw ground organic chicken
  • ½ cup of raw chicken liver
  • ½ cup of cooked grains (brown rice, for example)
  • ¼ cup finely grated raw zucchini (raw carrots, cooked green beans, squash can also work)
  • Vegetable broth (to soften)


  • Cook the meats in a saucepan.
  • Add the vegetables and grains.
  • Add the broth as required until the mix is ​​well blended.
  • Let it cool and serve.
