Lets start with the cons first and then go to the pros.

Making your own homemade kitten food will take you more time then simply opening a bag or can of kitten food. There is nothing simpler then pouring premade food into your kittens bowl. Making your own food will require you to spend time making it every few days.

On the flip side, the more you make your kittens food the less time it will take you and it has been shown that cats can live a much longer time when feed a diet that closely resembles what they would eat out in the wild.

Making your own kitten food will cost more money in the beginning. A kitten eats uncooked meat and veggies.

It will actually cost you less money in the long run to feed your cats homemade food. When your kitten gets the right amount of nutrition he will be sick less often. That means that you will spend less on vet bills. You still need to get your friend his shots but the sick vet bills will be greatly reduced. Your kitten will also eat less when he is properly feed.

Before you start feeding your kitten homemade food you need to do your homework. Cats have different food allergies then we do and some of our food is actually poison to them.

Garlic, onions, and tomatoes are poison. Cats should not eat any thing that is in the same food group as onions and garlic. Kittens are also lactose intolerant and where as it won’t kill them it will make them sick and that would defeat the purpose of feeding your cat homemade food.

Just like anything else, after you learn the rules and follow them, they become second nature so you won’t even have to think about them.

Giving your kitten healthy cat food will allow your kitten to live a long, healthy lifetime. Feed your kitten homemade kitten food.
