    Nice kitty food but my kitty does not like chicken. I wonder if it would work with sea-foods?
    Also for some reason I always picture Silvester the cat from Looney-tunes eating TweetyBird's seeds when I see you recommend quinoa/millet as one of the ingredients. LOL :D

    May I - respectfully - ask what the pupose is for all those vegetables?

    You ask an excellent question. The original quantities were off a little bit, I have corrected them. The recipe was modified from my larger batch recipe. If you look up any high-quality homemade cat or dog food they usually include veggies. My cat has eaten this food for over 10 years and is almost 21 years old.
