This is what I pretend to be when I make the cats (and dogs) their dinner...

My cats don't sit there as patiently as that one, however.



As to the question of store bought vs home made: If your cat has been eating store bought, they may prefer it much like a kid prefers pizza over a meal with a lot of veggies. Ultimately, they will grow to love home made more, and it's a lot healthier for them.

We have six cats aged 3 to 18. Each of them likes the different store-bought vittles we currently supply them with. It isn't going to get any better than this for them any time soon.

I used to have 7...they all got fed homemade. It's cheaper, healthier for them, (since they are carnivores), and they like it much more than garbage nuggets or even canned slop from the store.

Whatever you find best in your circumstances. There are however a variety of high quality brands of wet cat food out there these days, so there is no single way to do this. Although I did today, Old Aches & Pains doesn't cook/prepare food for people so much anymore. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. The cats are all active, healthy, and enjoying life at this point. Those are my ambitions for them, and along with some cool toys, fresh litter, and places to play, clean, and sleep. this is about the best that I can do for them.

I don't even cook for myself like that. :-)


The video is comparing dry kibble with homemade cat food. Of course most cats will prefer the homemade. I wonder what would have happened if the guy in the video had a good quality canned food vs. the homemade?

I mostly put it up just for the video but felt I was supposed to comment about it. I don't really give a fig what anyone feeds their pets - well, to a certain extent, I simply wanted you all to watch something ridiculously adorable.

I was wondering that too.

Of course, I have one cat who would prefer a store bought baguette over anything, so I can't really comment from personal experience.

LOL - ShadowCat does not ask for a bit of my sandwich, she will tackle it if I do not get to it first. She only gets a pea sized bit of crust but that must be better then treats:>)
