BackstoryAdapted from a recipe by Tony Lawson
Most cats love turkey, but the highly spiced holiday bird is often too rich for them. This recipe would make a fine meal for your cats during the winter holidays, or any other time of the year. Skip the salt if your cat has feline hypertension.
Refrigerate or freeze in meal-size packets, then warm to serve.
BakeSpace Note: Please keep in mind that some experts express concern that homemade pet food may not contain the optimal combination of nutrients (amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals) that pets require for long-term health. Your pet’s species, breed, age and any existing medical problems should be considered before preparing a homemade meal. Please consult your veterinarian for more information.
