Paleo Raw Diet for Cats: Recipe

I've been feeding my cats real food since the first day they entered my household.

Recently, I've taken up a notch and started on paleo diet because of some health implication Miruku (my white Ragdoll) has faced. Miruku has a sensitive digestive system since he was a kitten, he's not able to consume any kibbles or canned wet food without getting serial diarrhea cases that last for days. On top of that, he's an incredibly finicky eater, which made transitioning him from food to food challenging.

He made up for it by being incredibly cute.

It took two days to transition him from his usual cooked food (chicken, fish, pig's heart, etc) to paleo raw diet, by introducing paleo little by little mixing in with the previous diet.

Below is my recipe for this week's paleo, you can change it with chicken or other meat as you like.

Ingredients: (serving size ~ 2 adult cats for 3 days)

2 cups of fresh minced beef
2 cups of fresh minced lamb (I'm using Australian grade for both)
1 handful of organic wheatgrass (you can use organic grass if you can gain access to them), scissored
2 raw egg yolks
1/4 steamed squash, pitted and skinned (for fiber)
1 cup of water
At this point I am avoiding bones because of vet's advise on Miruku's illness recovery. But I will definitely incorporate again in the future because that's how they clean their teeth

Optional ingredients: (omit if you want to go full paleo)

1 tbsp of collagen (human grade or pet grade is fine)
1 tsp of unflavoured gelatine
2 fish oil capsules
Now I do no add taurine because taurine can be found most in muscle meat, and I do feed them pig's heart (heart is a muscle). This is because I much prefer they receive natural taurine than synthetic ones i.e. store-bought taurine. 


Mix squash, minced meat, chopped/scissored wheatgrass in a bowl. In another bowl, mix in water, raw egg yolks, gelatine (mix with warm water prior), collagen, and squeeze out fish oil from capsules. Then combine both mixture. Feed according to your cat's size. For a 4kg cat, feed approximate one cup measurement of the food mix a day. So if you cat eats twice a day, have half a cup in the morning then half a cup in the evening.

The mix can be refrigerated up to 3 days. Which is just nice for 2 x 4kg adult cats. If you have a smaller breed cat, you may reduce the portion according to your cat's need.

You may also increase the recipe and portion them up to freeze for the entire month.
I tend to avoid freezing because the taste of raw meat become bland upon defreezing, and might I remind that I do have a very finicky cat.

Miruku sleeping off a food coma. Poor baby has gotten so skinny after one week at the hospital.

They have been pooping more healthily (no soft or liquid feces) and their poo don't smell anymore. Miruku has dramatically increase his frequency of peeing which is a major relief.
