Conway Kitty Loves Fish Hugger Sockeye!
20 January, 2017
I LOVE my cat. Seriously, picture in your head the crazy cat lady who talks to her cat constantly like a human and spoils him rotten... yep, that’s me ïŠ I don’t have human children, just my one, one-eyed fur-baby Conway Kitty. He’s a handful and has been since we adopted him, but I still love him to pieces. Unfortunately, over the last couple of years Conway had been suffering from immune reactions to his food. He’s had several infections in his gums and his teeth, and last year had to have 6 teeth pulled. After that, I said “Enough is enough!” and decided I would go on the journey to making his food myself. I mean, I am a Holistic Nutritionist after all! Let’s fast forward through a lot of research, a few recipe flops, and a bit of frustration to get to the good stuff! The crème de la crème of cat food recipes! My research indicated one of the most nourishing foods you can feed your cat is wild-caught salmon, so I decided to try using my beloved Fish Hugger Sockeye. I’m not always good about eating my Sockeye leftovers, so I figured I’d eat my portion of a filet, and make the rest into cat food for Conway. While cooking this recipe, my cat was at my side constantly! He was just hoping for a morsel of something to drop on the floor. After I finished my recipe and gave him his first feeding, he DEVOURED the food. My cat NEVER devours his meals. He’s the finicky cat that eats some, walks away, goes back to eat some more, walks away again and so on. Not with this recipe! My cat ate the ENTIRE serving within just a few minutes and was begging for more. This wasn’t a one- time fluke either! The entire 14 servings of my new Sockeye Salmon cat food were ALL eaten in the same manner! I was blown away... Then, enter his next round of food (which happened to be chicken and liver). I was feeling so proud of my accomplishments with the prior sockeye recipe, I was expecting the same results. Well, much to my dismay, Conway didn’t want one thing to do with the chicken and liver! As I set down his first meal of the chicken recipe, he totally snubbed it and just walked away! He came back into the kitchen crying & begging just hoping there was more sockeye to devour. Well, let’s just say the next few days of feeding were not much fun because he was stuck with the chicken and liver. The coolest part of all of this was when I had my friend over after the week of sockeye salmon feeding. She complimented Conway on how beautiful his coat looked and how much healthier and lively he seemed since she had saw him a month prior! It was in that moment I realized how far he had come along in those 6 weeks since he’d had processed canned food. I truly believe food is medicine, and if you love your fur-babies like I do, I highly recommend making nourishing meals for them too!
